7. Rare View

Tucked above the hustle and bustle of the city streets in Murray Hill is Rare View, a 4,000-square-foot rooftop garden with incredible views of the Empire State and Met Life Buildings. Recently renovated with new designs, cocktails and appetizers, enjoy a summer with music and drinks at Rare. Cocktails range from gin based beverages to vodka drinks and even margaritas, with typical bar bites including mini burger sliders and wings.  The rooftop space can be reserved for private parties as well.
