Rooftop Respites for Summer

Rooftop Respites for Summer

The best places to catch a summer sunset or a blissful breeze, from a refreshed midtown muse in New York City to panoramic views of Boston's skyline and the Boston Harbor and more around the country.

The Royalton Park Ave Rooftop Lounge | New York, NY

Royalton Park Avenue’s dynamic two-floor food, beverage and entertainment rooftop is back with a modern refresh and new offerings to the indoor and outdoor spaces. Embodying a high-end private club feel, the midtown space is adorned with distressed Chesterfield sofas, rich leather club chairs, marble accents and lush details. Signature floor-to-ceiling windows and a wrap around terrace beckon once again, while new small plates and vibrant, seasonal cocktails greet guests with delectable variety. Outside, the heated pool takes center stage, not to be outdone by unobstructed Empire State Building views. Adjacent is the intimate Ivy Lounge, where an electric yellow piano catches eyes before guests settle into the private outdoor terrace or in front of the cozy fireplace, featuring special music performances on a weekly basis.

The Joule | Dallas, TX

Perhaps the most iconic feature of The Joule, its unique 8-foot cantilevered pool gives guests the sensation of swimming out beyond the hotel’s edge. Equally voyeuristic for those swimming or those standing on the street below, this sexy swimming pool gives “hanging out by the pool” a whole new meaning. Besides the unreal views, guests can also enjoy bites and drinks, including The Joule’s signature frozen margaritas, at the pool’s full bar.
