RHUM: Patchogue 

It’s all about the vacation vibes at Rhum in Patchogue. The space brings Caribbean vibes right to Long Island. The menu is loaded with island inspired dishes like jerk chicken tacos, duck empanadas and housemade guacamole. The drinks are just as tropical with options like piña coladas, coconut mojito and rum punch and margaritas. Head upstairs to the rooftop for the ultimate Caribbean experience. Think wooden accents, greenery and swinging seating at the bar. Starting in May, the rooftop is open Wednesday through Sunday with seating, food and drink service.

 

Rooftop 32 at Kasey’s Kitchen & Cocktails: Rockville Center 

Kaseys is popular all year-round, but once the spring weather hits, customers start flocking to the rooftop for some outdoor enjoyment. There’s a bar serving refreshing cocktails like coconut martinis, sangria and margaritas, and a restaurant area serving up New American seasonal dishes. Tuna nachos, lobster rolls, filet mignon sliders and Thai lettuce wraps, all perfect for sharing. Enjoy live music and happy hour Tuesday through Friday. If you’re lucky, grab a comfy spot on one of the red couches perfect for larger groups.

 

Mannino’s Italian Kitchen: Commack 

Mannino's Italian Kitchen in Commack is a sleek Italian restaurant with locations in Oakdale and Smithtown, is known for their delicious dishes like their grilled octopus fresh pastas and amazing steaks. With a large indoor bar and dinging area, Mannino’s also offers an upstairs deck with seating for around 40 guests. There's also an outdoor lounge with a fire pit for relaxing and even live music.

 

Shipwreck Tavern: Bayville 

Enjoy some tiki fun on the rooftop at Shipwreck Tavern, which overlooks the Long Island Sound. Decked out with tiki torches, the colorful escape is a great place to kick back with a tropical cocktail and take in the beautiful weather. With lots of tasty libations on the menu, including Dark & Stormy, Banana Monkey (white rum, crème de danana, grenadine and fresh lime) and a Pink Bikini (lemon vodka, cranberry juice, lemon juice and splash of club soda). Pair it with a New England style lobster roll or the fried chicken sandwich for the perfect rooftop eats. 

 

BayVue: Lindenhurst 

A cocktail bar with views of the Great South Bay make this rooftop lounge at BayVue a must-visit. Dig into small plates, like fresh rolled sushi, crispy wings and tasty sliders. Guests must try their warm weather inspired cocktails like piña coladas, vodka lemonade and refreshing martinis. Pro Tip: Make sure to grab a seat for some stunning sunsets.
