La Piscine Rooftop Bar

The rooftop bar La Piscine (French for ‘the pool’) is located above the boutique hotel ‘Americano’ in Chelsea. It’s super close to the High Line and not too far from Hudson River. The rooftop bar’s name surely gives it away: It has a pool! But that’s still not all. You will also find day beds and cabanas that scream for pure relaxation. If you notice some Mexican influences in their drinks, you’re definitely not wrong! The hotel belongs to a Mexican hotel group.

La Piscine is presently closed for the season. The swim season 2018 starts on May 28th (Memorial Day).

Another great feature is the stunning view of the Empire State Building and of the Hudson River. La Piscine Rooftop Bar is truly an amazing place to be and even ranks in our 34 Best Rooftop Bars in New York – Rooftop Bar Guide 2018.

Other Things to Do nearby:

You can perfectly combine a visit to the La Piscine with a walk to Pier 66 and a delicious lunch at the Frying Pan Restaurant right by the Hudson River. For the party people among you, we are happy to announce that Marquee, one of New York’s Best Night Clubs, is only 2 minutes away! If you are looking for another great rooftop bar in the area, we recommend stopping by the Gallow Green a few buildings down.
