Plunge (New York)

Taking over the Gansevoort Hotel's 14th-floor penthouse in the Meatpacking District, this granddaddy of New York's rooftop bars is still among the city's best -- with some of the most stylish parties, an amazing outdoor pool and, of course, a sick view of the NYC skyline and the Hudson River. Plunge is packed with pretty young things on the weekends, so those not looking to be part of the scene may prefer to watch the sunset from the wraparound balcony mid-week.

Insider's Tip: Give the recently revamped American bistro-style menu with its fresh, chopped salad, jumbo shrimp skewers or rooftop sliders a shot; you'll be pleasantly surprised.
