Overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park, the rooftop lounge on the 14th floor of Six Columbus boasts a bar menu of summer cocktails from Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and enclosed waterfalls. In the case of a real water fall, a retractable roof hangs overhead so you can booze with views rain-or-shine. It's for hotel guests or by reservation only, so it should maintain a civilized level of breathing room.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
