Hit up the 29th floor of Viceroy New York and feel free to shout, “I’m on a boat!” Well, technically, there’s no water, but that’s exactly how you’ll feel amid the walnut and leather interiors, brass detailing, and a gallery of sea and sky photographs. This luxe locale is new to the city’s bar scene — it opened in March — but it's already as beloved as a legendary go-to. A platter of grilled-cheese bites, a glass of bubbly, and panoramic views of Central Park? See you there.
The Roof at Viceroy New York, 124 W. 57th Street (between Sixth and Seventh avenues); 212-707-8008.
