#feature ROOFTOP REFRESHMENT BY KELLY FILIPPONE AND JOANNA PUCHALSKI if possible! Plan ahead and book a dinner reservation at Parker & Quinn on the ground level which is a 1920s-themed restaurant, which is equally as cool as the rooftop. Pier 13 in Hoboken. The Frying Pan at Pier 66a S ummer is finally here! We decided to put together a list of some of our favorite rooftops and outdoor spaces to enjoy the warm weather. While this list is only scratching the surface of the amazing places to sip a cocktail in NYC, these are some of our personal favorites: Bookmarks Rooftop Lounge at the Library Hotel 299 Madison Ave. at 41st Street, 14th Floor www.libraryhotel.com/dining-andentertainment.html Bookmarks is a midtown hidden gem inside the Library Hotel. Located across the street from the Bryant Park Library, this rooftop lounge has a very special garden atmosphere. 20 @MPIGNY SUMMER 2014 The Press Lounge at Ink48 653 11th Ave. between 47th and 48th streets www.thepresslounge.com This is a lesser known rooftop to the west of Times Square and has some of the best views of the city and the Hudson River. They have comfortable lounge seating and an interesting drink menu. Since it is a few blocks west from the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the atmosphere feels like a real oasis in NYC. The Refinery Rooftop at the Refinery Hotel 63 W. 38th St. www.refineryhotelnewyork.com/ refinery-rooftop This cool and trendy rooftop spot near Bryant Park is perfect for an after-work happy hour with friends or drinks with a client. It can get crowded to arrive early 530 W. 26th St. fryingpan.com The Frying Pan is nothing new for us locals, but we can't forget about this great place to spend an afternoon or sunset aboard this very special docked vessel. They aren't known for their food, but they have a wide selection of beer and delicious sangria pitchers that are perfect for a group. Pier 13 Hoboken The Shipyard next to the Pier 14 NY Waterway Ferry www.pier13hoboken.com If you are brave enough to leave NYC, Pier 13 is situated on the Hudson River in Hoboken. An easy ferry ride from the city, you can sip on specialty beers and wine while you play lawn games and watch the sailboats pass by. Various food trucks set up for the day such as Luke's Lobster, The Taco Truck and Hibachi Heaven. Gallow Green at the McKittrick Hotel 542 West 27 th St. mckittrickhotel.com/gallowgreen/ You'll be transported out of NYC to a country home in the midst of summer. Period actors and delicious cocktails make for a wonderful evening.  @ http://www.fryingpan.com http://www.thepresslounge.com http://www.pier13hoboken.com http://www.libraryhotel.com/ http://www.refineryhotelnewyork.com/ http://www.mckittrickhotel.com/
