Summers in NYC are brutal between walking in 95 degree weather up avenues that are way too long and waiting in the non-air conditioned subway for the N train that never seems comes on time, you would think I would have lost 5 pounds by now. Heck, it’s called the Concrete Jungle for a reason-only the survival of the fittest survive. But, summers in NYC definitely has its perks too-so what’s the best part about summer city living? Rooftop bars! There is no better Instragam-worthy site than the sun setting on the water and a backdrop of tall buildings.
My first summer 2016 rooftop adventure was at Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar located in the Conrad New York. This place has the summer essentials-wine and popsicles! Loopy Doopy is best known for their Prosecco and Ice Pop Cocktails at $22 per glass with a beautiful sunset view of the Lower Manhattan skyline. My favorite summer flavor is peach (just ask my boyfriend who has to buy me a Peach Snapple every day) so I went with the Peach Iced Tea Lemonade (and my boyfriend tried the Blueberry). One word-Tasty! There is also a gorgeous view of the Hudson River, Statue of Liberty, and the New York Harbor.
