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.

If Hôtel Americano’s industrial-modernist architecture didn’t score a shout-out in your Instagram feed, then its roof-deck bar La Piscine definitely will. Reservations are required to bliss out in the cabanas and lounge chairs, but it’s worth it. Dip your toes into the pool, sip some wine, take in views of the Hudson River and The High Line, and prepare for the number of likes on your feed to shoot up.
La Piscine at Hôtel Americano, 518 W. 27th Street (between Tenth and Eleventh avenues); 212-525-0000.
