Before you head to the rooftops, a brief note: Indoor and outdoor dining and bars are nearly fully reopen, but some of the rooftop bars we previously featured in this list are still closed. Though a couple of the open spots are only accepting walk-ins, we highly encourage securing a reservation when possible since all of these venues are operating at a limited capacity.
