The Freehand New York's new rooftop watering hole already has quite a reputation. Last year, the OG Miami hot spot was named as one of the top five bars in America, thanks, no doubt, to its expert mixologists and innovative takes on Caribbean classics. Now, the tropical vibes have landed in New York, with a rooftop outpost that's just as lush as the Miami original. The Afro-jazzy urban oasis is particularly massive. Designed by Roman and Williams, it features two indoor bar areas, and two outdoor spaces, offering high-rise views amid its beach shack decor.
