There are a few pleasures New Yorkers have come to accept they’ll never have: lawn sprinklers, the ability to buy liquor in a grocery store and a spring season that lasts longer than a week. We can take swim-up bar off that list, however, thanks to Le Bain, which brings an irreverent, aquatic vibe to a Meatpacking rooftop with a plunge pool, AstroTurf lawn incredible views of the city, and a Parisian crêperie (why not?). The cocktail list is eminently refreshing without sacrificing good taste for day-drinkability. Instead of the usual juice- and soda-heavy, sugar-packed drinks peddled to pool paddlers, Le Bain’s cocktail list includes a selection of summer-perfect spritzes. At night, the rooftop dance party attracts a stellar international list of DJs who are guaranteed to work up a sweat—good thing there’s that pool.

What to drink
The Fraise 76 is a French 75 – already an impeccable summertime choice – with the addition of muddled fresh strawberry. Or pair your crêpe au jambon with a Paris Spritz: Aperol, St. Germain and Champagne.
The Top of the Standard (still known to a certain generation of New Yorkers as "The Boom Boom Room") is The Standard's opulent cool-weather option, with incredible views and impeccable service.
