As the frost begins to thaw and the air begins to warm, there’s little else New Yorkers are as keen to do as shed their winter coats and bask in the spring sunshine. And there are few rituals as beloved as enjoying a cocktail or any type of crisp beverage from a rooftop bar—all while taking in panoramic sights of the city in bloom. Residents of the One Manhattan Square condos are perfectly positioned to take advantage of this annual springtime ritual with an array of Lower East Side rooftop-drinking destinations.
Our first recommended destination is the aptly named cloudM. Perched 20 floors high atop the Citizen M hotel on Bowery, this destination for libations is outfitted with an outdoor deck with benches and couches—and surrounded by some of the most beautiful views in Lower Manhattan. Even if the weather’s not cooperating, the bar’s luxurious indoor seating area keeps the views front, center, and everywhere via floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel’s decor is eclectic and adorned with artwork, adding to its one-of-a-kind Lower East Side vibe.
Next up is Mr. Purple, which offers a rooftop bar and restaurant experience with the requisite stunning views, as well as a rooftop pool. The industrial-chic vibe is the perfect backdrop for enjoying some of the city’s most inventive signature cocktails or a selection from their New American food menu. Sit back on one of their terraces and enjoy people-watching the neighborhood’s glitterati.
Of course, rooftop options abound in the neighborhood—enough to visit each weekend of the spring. The Roof at PUBLIC hotel boasts a spacious outdoor terrace, epic views, and an Instagram-worthy backdrop. The Crown atop Hotel 50 Bowery features plush lounging furniture, two terraces, a rotation of live music, and a lively nighttime atmosphere amid a minimalist chic ambience.
Whatever heights are scaled and whichever rooftop bar is ultimately selected, residents of One Manhattan Square can thrive in the spring weather, with drinks and food in hand and the skyline around them.
