Waterworld
5 Pools You Need to Dip in This Summer

Here’s the situation: your A/C is proving woefully inadequate against Mother Nature, and also it’s pool party season. So here are the festive waters you’ll want to purify yourself in over the next few months.

UD - Sun-Tropez Fridays at the Dream

THE FRENCH ONE

Sun-Tropez Fridays at the Dream

The scene: Your own private cabana on 4,800 square feet of imported sand surrounding a glass-bottom pool. And this week, expect some deep house.
The refreshment: Boozy Kelvin slushies. It’s 92 degrees out there, by the way.
The jump: A full pike. Supermodels are watching.
411:
Fridays, 6-9:30pm, Dream Downtown, 355 W 16th St (at 9th), 212-229-2559, RSVP here
UD - Bloody Mary Sundays at the Empire Hotel

THE BRUNCH ONE

Bloody Mary Sundays at the Empire Hotel

The scene: A shady glade of aquatic glory 11 stories above the Upper West Side.
The refreshment: One guess. They’ve got a whole bar dedicated to Bloody Mary essentials—jerky, stuffed olives, shrimp. Simple stuff.
The jump: A pencil. Understated and elegant with a low-impact splash.
411:
Sundays, noon-4pm, The Empire Hotel, 44 W 63rd St (between Broadway and Columbus), 212-265-7400
UD - Poolside Yoga at McCarren Hotel

THE HEALTHY ONE

Poolside Yoga at McCarren Hotel

The scene: Daybeds and a saltwater pool after finding your center with a flexible group of friendly Williamsburgers.
The refreshment: Water. You just did yoga. Or you can wait it out until the Elm starts serving cocktails up there at 11.
The jump: Downward dog into cannonball.
411:
Tue-Thu, 7:30-8:30am; Fri-Sat, 9-10am; McCarren Hotel & Pool, 160 N 12th St (between Bedford and Berry), Brooklyn, 718-218-7500
UD - Recovery Sundays at La Piscine

THE POTENTIALLY WILD ONE

Recovery Sundays at La Piscine

The scene: An admittedly small body of water supplemented by a lot of dancing, mostly by heavily sunglassed folks who sympathize with your Sunday morning plight.
The refreshment: A bottle of champagne. Because it doesn’t count in the daylight.
The jump: None. Just wade in at your own pace.
411:
Sundays, La Piscine at Hôtel Americano, 518 W 27th St (between 10th and 11th), 212-525-0000, reserve here
UD - A Perk at the Gansevoorts

THE DOUBLE-BARREL ONE

A Perk at the Gansevoorts

The scene: A classic weekday of not working whilst gazing out from either of the city’s most beloved rooftop pool decks. Perks has you covered.
The refreshment: Whatever you want. We’re hooking you up with two cocktails.
The jump: Can opener. It’ll Instagram well against the skyline backdrop.
411:
Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC, 420 Park Ave S (at 29th), 212-317-2900, and Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC, 18 9th Ave (at 13th), 212-206-6700

Perk Alert: Day passes and cocktails for you and a friend at either location, right here.
