Privy 5 New York Rooftop Bar

The concrete jungle that is NYC craves breathing space, and patrons are starved for outdoor seating. Why waste space? Build a Rooftop Bar! Picture this, it's Memorial Day weekend - do you want to hit the Hamptons or the new high-rise bars which traditionally open at this time of year. The day beds are aired and if you don't want to stay cooped up, come out to play at these Rooftop Bar hot-spots that don’t discriminate against smokers.
