When NYC's sidewalks seem to be melting your shoes and your legs stick to the taxi's leather seats, it's time to cool off. And as we do every year, New Yorkers take to public swimming pools to keep cool. But when we're looking for something a little bit more adult, hanging poolside with a cocktail in hand is the answer. Several of New York’s finest hotels offer day passes for their rooftop pools, most of which include chaises and cabanas for lounging in addition to a full-service bar. The combination of two of New York's favorite things—swimming pools and rooftop bars—creates an elevated summer oasis worth throwing down some cash for. Make sure to cross one, if not all, of these pool off your things to do in the summer bucket list.
