The Best Outdoor Spots To Get A Really Good Cocktail In NYC

Are you old enough to remember going out to drink for the sake of going out to drink? What a time that was. But while the landscape of New York’s nightlife scene may have shifted in the past year, cocktail connoisseurs still have plenty of pinkies-up options when it comes to finding a quality concoction worth bundling up for. Click through for the al fresco watering holes serving up the best boozy sips in town. Trust, you can get plenty in before 10 pm.

The NoMad Rooftop

The hotel’s acclaimed beverage program has taken up residency in its plush tented rooftop space, where you can enjoy boozy concoctions along with major views beneath a canopy of chandeliers.


Cozy up with some world-famous Negronis at Caffe Dante’s OG location, which now boasts glass-separated outdoor tables and heaters. Seasonal sips include their Gingerbread Negroni, a Fireside Old Fashioned, and Hot Buttered Rum.


This French-inspired Chelsea bistro is making waves with their seriously creative (and très Instagrammable) cocktails, from their signature Mexican Stiletto (made with Codigo 1530 Rosa tequila, grapefruit, agave, Peychaud’s bitters) to their winter Spiced Chocolate.

67 Orange Street

Throw it back to the era of the Harlem Renaissance at this speakeasy-style watering hole now serving their innovative drinks, categorized by spirit, in their intimate sidewalk structure, or to-go.

The Garret Coctelería

Stop by the Garret Coctelería for all the staycation vibes at their “Winter in the Tropics” pop-up, boasting a menu full of fun south-of-the-border sips, like The Place Beyond The Pina or Parrot! At The Discoteca. 


Beloved for its bespoke mixology, Attaboy has (thankfully) set up shop al fresco, with a heated patio and cocktails served both hot and cold.
