Google Maps will say that you’ve arrived at Rooftop Reds, but you’ll look around the Brooklyn Navy Yard and find nothing but warehouses and construction sites. Then you’ll walk up the stairs of Building #275 towards the back of the grounds and into a very fun wine bar that’s also one of the most unique rooftops in the city. The huge space is packed with people playing cornhole, laying on hammocks, and drinking at picnic tables with great views of Manhattan. Besides the wines that all come from their vineyard upstate, they also serve beer. Just know that it’s reservation-only.

Bar Hugo - Rooftop
Bar Hugo is the good-looking rooftop bar/lounge at Hotel Hugo in Hudson Square, and it has a decent happy hour.
Mr. Purple is the restaurant/bar on top of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. It’s a good place to grab a drink with a group, but it does get busy.
