168 Delancey St (in the Lower East Side) website
A jungle? In the Lower East Side? Yes, that’s right, this rooftop bar and lounge located on Delancey Street may not have views of the city but you’ll feel like you’re on vacation here. It is on a roof top, covered in trees, may have a live band, a DJ and a trendy crowd dancing all night. It’s no wonder that this gorgeous lower east side hotspot has become a year-round destination for many Manhattan residents that are in-the-know.
Their rooftop bar is laid back and tropical with its potted palm trees and fountains, which contributes to its relaxing nature. It’s known for friendly bartenders and affordable drinks and food. Downstairs, you can revel in the red velvet booths enclosed by silky drapes and dimly-lit chandeliers. It’s open every day from 5pm to 4am, and even though there’s three levels of glamorous fun, the drinks are inexpensive and there’s no velvet rope hassle.
