Best Places to Drink Outside

June 03, 2019

From outdoor terraces to hidden patios, everyone in New York loves an al fresco cocktail. As summer temperatures are heating up, meander to one of these hip outdoor spots for an afternoon of sunshine and conversations.

Frying Pan

A favorite for many reasons. Hop onboard this stationary multi-level floating lighthouse bar located by Chelsea Piers for a quintessential New York moment. Dock yourself next to a bucket of beer or opt for one of their signatures summertime drinks like Cucu Cooler or Bay Bae.


Snuggle into this Cologne-inspired brewery located on the Lower East side for courtyard brews. Share a long communal table with fellow beer lovers and dine on traditional beer garden dishes like bratwurst with sauerkraut and schnitzels with fries.

Last Light at Sister City

Enjoy panoramic views at this swanky rooftop bar in the Lower East Side. Located just a stone's throw away from the New Museum, its the perfect place to cool off with a craft cocktail after a day of gallery hopping. We suggest trying the Blown Fuse, which is ultimately a delicious alcoholic slushie that changes flavors daily.
