It’s the end of summer and if you are like me, you’re gonna want to cling to the last days of sunshine, shorts, and rose.

The best way I’ve found to celebrate a gorgeous day in Manhattan is by lounging on the rooftop of a swanky hotel bar. I’m not picky. As long as there is reasonably priced food and drinks I’m willing to be bougie.

Refinery Rooftop, located in the Refinery Hotel, was the perfect way to spend last Sunday! It wasn’t too hot or too humid. Perfect weather to indulge on a lazy day. 

Part of their first ever annual “Endless Summer” event, Refinery hosted a wonderful BBQ spread brought to you by Swingbelly’s BBQ and beer by Montauk Beer. The BBQ included a whole hog! The Jew in me recoiled, but the foodie in me squealed in delight and I decided to dig right in!

Not only was Swingbelly’s BBQ mouthwatering, the beer crisp and cold, but the view and ambiance just made me realize how damn lucky I am to live in NYC.

My bestie and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience and we can’t wait for Refinery’s “Endless Summer” next year.
