We're equal-opportunity drinkers, and if we want to grab a drink at a hotel in the city, nothing's gonna stop us. And, we mean it because you don't have to book a room to take advantage of a hotel's bar. Speciality cocktails, light bites, amazing cityscapes, and even pools can be yours — all without having to swipe an access card.

So, with the help of Moët & Chandon, we created a handy guide to the best hotel bars around the city where you can get your drink on even if you didn't reserve a one-night stay. From a bar with amazing views of the Hudson and The High Line to one with an impressive collection of books, these haunts will have you thinking twice about hitting up your local joint tonight. Start planning your night now.

Swanky, sexy, and ‘70s-inspired, Jimmy is the ultimate treat-yo’-self venue for a sophisticated night out. With a 360-degree view of the cityscape, thanks to its circular architecture, and a thirst-inducing drink menu, this Soho rooftop bar is one of our personal haunts. Doors open at 9 p.m., making Jimmy the perfect after-David Burke Kitchen stop.
