    • Yelp – 4/5
    • TripAdvisor – 4.5/5

Not your average rooftop, this Williamsburg establishment has all the upscale decor and natural lighting you need for that epic insta-shot. It doesnt hurt that this bar is one of the highest scorers when it comes to reviews either.

Le Coucou

  • Where – 138 Lafayette St
  • Reviews:
    • Google – 4.6/5
    • Yelp – 4/5
    • OpenTable – 4.7/5

You could be forgiven if you thought you’d dropped into a bar in Paris. This SoHo spot is the place for post-dinner drinks, but maybe it’s the desserts as well as the decor that will bring those precious Instagram likes.

Stepping into Miss Lilly’s is catching a flight to Jamaica. You are both, in the greatest city in the world AND on an island getaway, complete with cocktails in coconuts and vibrant colors.

This pastel colored chic West Village locale is exactly the place to go for that Instagram love. The only thing presented better than the actual bar are the cakes and drinks, get ready for your feed to explode.

Make believe you just stepped into the Great Gatsby. This venue inside The Plaza Hotel has a century-long pedigree and shows. This sumptuous “old New York” locale is perfect for ‘gramming.

Ghost Donkey

  • Where – 4 Bleecker St
  • Reviews:
    • Google – 4.3/5
    • Yelp – 4.5/5
    • Foursquare – 8.9/10

Don’t expect natural lighting, but do expect dramatic lighting. It’s hard to get a bad shot in this bar lit by bright red string light, it leaves ever picture feeling both cozy and sultry at the same time.

Blind Barber

  • Where – 339 E 10th St
  • Reviews:
    • Google – 3.8/5
    • Yelp – 3/5
    • TripAdvisor – 4/5

This isn’t the only barber in the city that will offer you a drink, but the cocktail menu here is in a league of its own.

  • Where – Hudson River Park, Pier 25

Inspired by old-Manhattan’s floating oyster barges, Grand Banks offers you a floating drink and astounding views. Get this bar in your feed immediately.

  • Where – 174 Elizabeth St
  • Reviews:
    • Google – 3.8/5
    • Yelp – 3/5
    • TripAdvisor – 4/5

Every square inch of this Nolita bar is pink… that’s no exaggeration. If you’re looking for a chic place to grab a shot of your cocktail on a girls night accept no substitute.

Gallow Green

The garden is open. #herbfestival #rooftopbarnyc #plantyourseed

The rooftop of the McKittrick Hotel is part garden part and part cocktail bar. Gallow Green’s leafy floral backdrop is the perfect space to snap some classic pics to give your followers FOMO.
