For those of you who don't want to limit your rooftop enjoyment to temperate summer, fall and spring days—and why should you—here are our eight favorite sky-high establishments that stay open through the dead of winter.
Some, bars that will welcome you in for a warm hot toddy when it's 20 degrees out and pitch black at 5pm.
Others, lounges that will hand you a flannel blanket and direct you towards an outdoor fire pit surrounded by pine trees.
Others still, venues that will graciously allow you inside to stand at the bar and purchase $18 cocktails.
All, rounded up and properly documented in this very slideshow. See you on the other side.
