Where to Drink Outside in New York City During Summer 2018

by Hannah Warne on May 8, 2018 in Roundups

 
It’s that time again—warm weather means outdoor drinks. Whether you’re in the market for a casual get together with a cold beer or a more sophisticated affair with craft cocktails, we’ve got you covered.
 
Tucked inside the SoHo Grand hotel, Gillian’s has finally reopened for the season, and it’s a can’t-miss summer spot. Tropical decor with a food and drink menu to match define the space, but they’re really known for one signature item: the lethal and delicious watermelon margaritas. (310 W. Broadway; 212-965-3271)
 
Stone Street
On one of the Financial District’s oldest streets sit a stretch of bars and restaurants perfect for your outdoor drinking needs. Depending on your mood, stop into any of the establishments—which range from Irish Pub to Mexican restaurants—and sit at their long, communal outdoor tables for a social and fun atmosphere any day of the week.
 
Tucked away in an unassuming building in Murray Hill, Tavern 29 has a quaint and surprisingly spacious rooftop space. Great for afterwork happy hours or early evening weekend drinks, they have an extensive whiskey menu along with beer flights, unique cocktails and wine. (47 E. 29th St.; 212-685-4422)
 
This outdoor space in Gowanus is the perfect Saturday day drinking spot. Serving up a selection of frozen blended beverages alongside a collection of craft brews, it has something for everyone. Plus, an unbeatable offering of homemade barbeque that will satisfy your tipsy cravings, and it’s dog-friendly! (480 Union St.)
