Refinery Rooftop, one of the newer additions to the collection of rooftop bars in New York City, is a hot spot right now, and you will often see long lines post-work to get to the roof in nicer weather. The rooftop is open year-round and situated about 4 blocks from the Empire State Building, in the Refinery Hotel. The location affords fantastic views of the Empire State Building in a trendy and fun atmosphere. The rooftop does not serve dinner, but it does serve light bites, lunch, and of course seasonal cocktails. It’s open Monday-Thursday from 11:30am-1:00am, Friday from 11:30am-3am, Saturday from 12pm-3am, and Sunday from 12pm-1:00am.
