Did someone say rooftop? Enjoy a drink with a view at these spots as the weather heats up.

Why it matters: Lofty bars and restaurants are multiplying as new developments crop up across the city.

1. Cabra

Details: Spend golden hour sipping on drinks at this vibrant Fulton Market rooftop.

Food and drink: The Peruvian-inspired plates are bright and meant to be shared. We suggest the solterito salad with a ceviche dish and Takes Two to Mango cocktail to wash it down.

Address: 200 N. Green St.
