Drink This Now: Cocktails on the Roof at The Attic

Is it just us or do drinks taste better when enjoyed on a rooftop?

Cocktails on the Roof at The Attic

It’s the age-old question asked by New Yorkers: where should we go for drinks? Whether you want a nice cocktail or a cheap beer, there’s one thing we look for above all: ROOF. While the weather is still warm and the days are still long, there’s nothing better than rooftop drinks. Labor Day may be behind us, but there are still three more weeks until summer is officially over, so don’t give up the rooftop just yet.

The Attic offers more than just a rooftop; it’s a total of 5,000 square feet, with both indoor and outdoor space between the 15th and 16th floors. The Attic gives off a West Coast vibe, with the environment of a California pool lounge and the contemporary feel of Hollywood. The indoor space holds a DJ booth for when after-work drinks turn into a night out.

The cocktail menu takes inspiration from The Attic’s proximity to the theater district. With names like Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, and Avenue Q, you might find yourself humming a tune while you sip. Pick the right drink on the menu and you might find The Attic logo stenciled on your cocktail.
