Partying atop one of the many rooftop bars in Gotham is how most New Yorkers spend their summers. Drinks with a view? Always a good choice. But open-air rooftop decks are more than just a place where you can get buzzed—you can get your vinyasa on, too!
A few yoga studios have teamed with some of our favorite open-air bars this summer allowing visitors to work on their warrior pose and mediate while enjoying picturesque views of the skyline. For all you yogis who love finding your zen outdoors, make sure to check out Bryant Park’s yoga classes on the lawn.
