There is (or at least should be) and old saying that: to get the best views if the city, you have to leave the city. This is really true for the Z Roof, located at the Z NYC Hotel in Queens (Long Island City).
A trip out here offers a magnificent view of almost all of central Manhattan as well as the East River and Queensboro Bridge. A perfect rooftop to watch the sun set over the Big Apple and then the lights of the famous skyline start glowing like twinkling stars.
Z Roof NYC is a large roof terrace of an entire 5000 square foot, making it one of the largest NYC sky lounges that you can find in this article.
And while the Z Hotel Rooftop Bar is a quite diverse place, where you can exercise rooftop yoga in the mornings and enjoy tasty signature cocktails during early evenings, it is mostly famous for it's weekend rooftop parties. From 10pm every Friday and Saturday, the beat is really on with celebrity DJs keeping the atmosphere on a high well into the night (expect a $20 cover).
Sometimes the party mode also spills over into the Sunday, when you can enjoy brunch and rooftop day party, with unlimited food, Mimosas and Bellinis. Well worth checking out!
The Z Roof NYC dress code is smart casual, so make sure to leave the sports wear at home.
