Next weekend, World Pride culminates into one final celebration at the famous pride parade. While stopping along the route is a must-do, we have the perfect places to cheers to pride month, all while escaping the madness. From rooftop bars to a hotel with no rooms and a delicious  Follow The Float campaign, restaurants across NYC have teamed up to create pride-themed experiences, even going as far as giving a portion of the proceeds of sales back to GLAAD! Now that’s the kind of “feel good” cocktails and events we like to support.  


Here are some lit spots that will have you living your best life in the name of equality:

  • Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer (Midtown & SoHo) are serving The Pride made with grenadine, pineapple juice, Midori, Blue Curaçao, and Tito’s Vodka, garnished with an orange

  • The Henry at The Life Hotel (Koreatown) are serving the  Marsha P. Johnson made with amaro, Coco Diplomatico, vanilla syrup, lemon, orgeat, egg white, bitters and roobois chai

  • Great Northern Food Hall (Midtown) is serving Sunshine, Lemon Drops & Rainbows with Cardinal Spirits Pride Vodka, lemon and sugar, garnished with a sugar rim and rainbow cherry skewer; Mai Ukulele with Privateer Pride Silver Rum, habanero pineapple syrup, lime and Privateer Navy Yard float, served layered on the rocks with a rainbow salted rim

  • Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge (Midtown) the indoor-outdoor rooftop will be throwing a 10-hour 'Top of the World' Pride party hosted by DJ, Whitney Day. Celebrate Pride with sets building on layers of vocal and deep house, disco, funk and driving, percussive rhythms. Venue highlights include: Carousel seating, oversized topiary gardens, and Foreplay: a miniature putt-putt featuring life-sized animals in flirty poses. Live music and a list of decadent cocktails and large format “curiosities”, interactive cocktails with unique presentations for groups — along with beer, wine, Champagne, and spirits. Doors open at 4:00PM.
