After closing its doors for fifteen months, this New Orleans-style oyster bar reopened last summer to cheers throughout the neighborhood and beyond. The popular salon's 1,000-square-foot, flora-filled garden is open from May through November for all manner of food and drinks, including Maison Premiere's famed absinthe and martinis.
In New York City, outdoor drinks are possible, probable and practically perfected year-round, but spring and summer are prime time for open air imbibing. The sunny days are longer, the temperatures are warmer and fun frozen drinks reenter the mix all around town. With appearances by boat bars, rooftops, dives and secret gardens, these are our favorite places to sip beer, wine, cocktails and all manner of boozy consumables outside in NYC this season.
