Hotel Hugo is combining two of our favorite things this summer: Rooftop bars and outdoor movies.

In case you couldn’t get tickets to Rooftop Cinema Club’s screenings this month (FYI, tickets for July and August were just announced), Hotel Hugo’s new outdoor movies series is here to save the day!

The Lower Manhattan hotel’s rooftop bar Azul offers 360-degree views of Manhattan, delicious cocktails and tantalizing Cuban-inspired bites while you watch classic films from yesteryear, as well as brand-new releases. The films will play every Monday night on a large-screen projector while you sit back and relax underneath twinkling festoon lights. Best of all, the films are free.

The movies begin at sunset (around 8pm or 9pm), so make sure you get there early to stake out a good viewing spot beforehand. Check out what’s on the docket below.

June 12: The Big Lebowski
June 19: La La Land

The guacamole and chips as well as the shrimp ceviche are two great options when it comes to enjoying small bites at this trendy rooftop. The drinks didn't really impress me as they are a little pricey for such small amount of alcohol content. Don't get me wrong, they were good flavor wise; however, the quantities were limited. The rooftop has a very cool vintage touch to it. The lower bar/ balcony areas offer a great atmosphere for having more intimate conversations while sipping on fruity cocktails... It is an overall nice place to spend a hot summer afternoon.
