All hail summertime weather! Its about damn time.
We basically want to be spending all of our time outside now; whether that means outdoor concerts, festivals, or flea markets, we want sunshine, as often as we can get it.
Of course, one of our most favorite summer activities is enjoying a cocktail or two whilst basking in the summer air.
And while you may think you have to trek to the outer boroughs to experience a truly chill outdoor bar experience (where you won't be elbowing the person next to you all night), there are plenty of spots right here in Manhattan.
Read on to discover the absolute best outdoor bars in Manhattan that you've got to visit this summer.

How does a vodka open bar courtesy of 50 Bleu Vodka, free beer and wine, passed h’ordeuvres, three hours of dancing, and breathtaking views courtesy of World Yacht’s absolute beaut, Duchess, sound for a 4th of July Party?
Pretty damn good, right? Join us for our July 4th Weekend Sunset Booze Cruise and this dream can become a reality.
It’s all going down Sunday, July 3rd, 6:30 p.m., at Pier 81, located at West 41st Street & the West Side Highway– come hell, high water, rain, or shine– and the party won’t stop until at least 9:30 p.m. That’s three, count ‘em three, hours of madness.
Seriously, what could be a better place to see the fireworks than a gorgeous yacht on the Hudson River-- while not paying an arm and a leg for all of the other waterfront events going down the day after? Get your Sunday Funday tickets right here!
2. Fish Bar (Pier 81 at 41st Street)
nrfishbar "You are good. Get better." - Don Draper
Fish Bar offers a one-of-a-kind drinking experience. Screw the waterfront views, we want water-on views! Fish Bar is located on a 3-level yacht owned and operated by New York Cruise Lines (who also operates World Yacht). Why does any of that matter?
Because the yacht is beautiful, the route around the Hudson is gorgeous, the drinks are incredible, and that's basically where our Fourth of July Weekend Sunset Booze Cruise is!
We're sayin' word to the 3rd and throwing down in style with a fully-stocked vodka open bar courtesy of 50 Bleu Vodka, free beer and wine, passed h’ordeuvres, three hours of dancing, and breathtaking views aboard World Yacht’s absolute beaut, Duchess.

3. Pier A Harbor House (22 Battery Place)
percaanovela O Pier A Harbor House é um bar/restaurante em Manhattan, o lugar perfeito para assistir o por do sol e a estátua da liberdade. #PierAHarborHouse #NewYork #NovaYork #PercaaNovela Curtiu?! Passa lá no nosso site pra saber mais sobre esse lugar :) www.percaanovela.com
Waterfront views take happy hours to the next level - this is a proven fact.
Pier A's gorgeous, wrap-around patio is the absolute perfect spot for after work drinks, especially if you work in the Financial District, where the restaurant is located.
In addition to a decently-priced food and drink menu, this spot also offers a stunning view of the Statue of Liberty.
4. Southwest Porch (Bryant Park - 40th Street & 6th Avenue)
bryantparkgrill It's a beautiful night in #NYC and #BryantPark. Stop by the #Cafe or the #SouthwestPorch for a quick drink before you hit the town!
We know that Midtown is usually an area New Yorkers avoid, especially when it comes to bars and restaurants. This is super valid.
But Southwest Porch's stellar cocktail menu and beautiful views of Bryant Park create an ideal atmosphere for outdoor drinking in NYC.
