The Empire Hotel Rooftop offers precisely what you'd expect from a high-end establishment of this caliber: beautiful 12th-floor views, a classy ambiance, and an elite crowd. The tastefully decorated rooftop is enclosed for year-round enjoyment, and the ornamentation is not to be forgotten. The bar offers a wide variety of cocktails that imbibers can enjoy while taking in spectacular views of the Upper West Side. The rooftop space is intimate, so long lines are standard. DJs play a wide range of music, mostly Top 40 and pop hits; some evenings there are live jazz performances during happy hour. --Gabriel Herrera
