The Roof at the Viceroy bar - New York, USA
If there’s one sort of bar we have a weakness for, it’s a rooftop one. So the latest example, unveiled at the Viceroy hotel in New York, has gone straight to the top of our list. Perched on the hotel’s 29th floor and making the most of its Central Park location, The Roof is a gem to behold. In keeping with the rest of the property, the bar’s moody, brass-trimmed interiors have been designed by Roman and Williams, who used woods like walnut on the ceilings and iroko for the surrounds to create an intimate yacht-like clubhouse in the sky. Boasting an outdoor terrace that will be open year round, The Roof comes armed with a menu of small-batch spirits, regional beers and a bevy of classic and house cocktails to keep patrons well-lubricated. There’s also a generous menu of bar snacks and bites - a New York cheese plate, black garlic ranch Cobb salad and truffled deviled eggs - to enjoy while savouring the view, which probably means visitors won’t be venturing far beyond it anytime soon.
