1. The Pool at The Peninsula
In the heart of the city’s most prominent shopping, entertainment and cultural district, this iconic neo-classical hotel offers gorgeous rooms, a fitness center, and a lavish rooftop pool and bar. Unique spa experiences offer the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city.

2. Shibui Spa at The Greenwich Hotel
This TriBeCa stunner is hope to Shibui Spa, a breathtaking oasis illuminated by lanterns complete with what is arguably the most calming pool in the city. A poolside massage followed by a plate of pasta downstairs at Locanda Verde; it doesn't get much more indulgent than that.

3. Rooftop at Soho House
A London import planted in the heart of New York City's nightlife hub, this bustling hotel and members’ club is renowned for its personalized rooms, seasonal American Italian restaurant, and heated year-round rooftop pool. Throw in killer views of the city skyline and the glory of the Soho House name for the ultimate city pool experience.

4. La Piscine at Hôtel Americano
Located on the rooftop of The Hôtel Americano, La Piscine offers views of Manhattan and a swanky atmosphere for hotel guests. During the winter months, rooftop lounge SNOB makes a cameo in The Grill at La Piscine's absence. Alpine-chic lounging, anyone?

5. Jimmy at The James
A concrete halo roof framing the plunge pool at The James is the only thing between swimmers and the sweet summertime air. When the warm weather hits (if it ever comes around), make this your downtown destination. In the meantime, yearn for summer over our cocktails at one of our favorite year-round lounge destinations, Jimmy at The James.
