As you know, I love the rooftop bars of New York City – they are always a highlight for me, especially in the summer. They are really awesome on the 4th of July because you can see the beautiful skyline of New York City and the famous 4th of July fireworks.

Here I will tell you which rooftop bars have a great view of the 4th of July fireworks. Very important: some of them you can only visit with a ticket, and sometimes there are also rooftop parties – you can see all of them here on my ‘best list!’

Westlight NYCRooftop Bar in WilliamsburgOur HighlightAdd to myNY added
The Westlight in Brooklyn is considered one of the most beautiful rooftop bars in New York – and rightly so! It belongs to The William Vale Hotel and has a rooftop bar, a lounge area, a bar and a restaurant. What distinguishes the Westlight from many other spots is the unspoilt panoramic view of Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan.

4 Stars | For me, the Hoxton in Williamsburg is one of the most beautiful hotels in New York: from the rooftop bar you have a spectacular view of Manhattan, and the rooms are very tastefully decorated. I felt at home immediately!

Bar BlondeauRooftop Bar in WilliamsburgAdd to myNY added
Right next to the Brooklyn Brewery (our favorite beer) is the Wythe Hotel with its rooftop bar Blondeau. From there you have a great view on the skyline of Manhattan. And: the bar is totally relaxed: no bottle service (i.e. you don’t have to take off whole bottles of champagne and co.) and no dress code make for a relaxed atmosphere.
