New York is definitely one of the best places on Earth to go out! So, check out the best rooftop venues for a Bachelorette party in New York!
There are thousands of rooftop party venues in New York and almost every one of them is perfect for a Bachelorette party.
But you want yours to be special (and who doesn’t?) so you have to search through the best ones to figure out what you want. We are going to do that for you.
First, you need to think about the basics like how many to invite, the style, and whether you will have food or just cocktails.
If it is your party, you can easily decide most of these issues but if you are planning it for someone else, you may have to be more creative.
Talk to the bride or, if it is a surprise, the maid of honor about the specifics you will need to plan for.
When will the big day be?
Since the party will be outdoors and it is in New York, the best time for this shindig is spring or early summer.
You do not want it to be too hot or too cold and New York tends to get a lot of snow, so you definitely do not want to plan it for the winter.
Even early autumn is not a bad choice as long as you keep an eye on the weather reports.
Figure out the budget
There is always a budget to think about and with a bachelorette party, there are a lot of little things to count that can add up.
From food and drinks to décor and transportation, you have to make sure you have enough money for everything before you go all out.
You do not want to run out of money before you get it all paid for.
Decide on the guest count
Determining the guest count is not just about how many people are in the bridal party.
Some of the people that the bride may want to be there may not be a part of the bridal party for some reason or another.
And you must think about the budget because the more guests you have, the more money it will cost.
Choose a theme
There are so many themes that you can choose from to make the party more unique.
You do not want it to be just another bachelorette party where the girls don’t really mingle and there is little to no entertainment. Here are some ideas that we think are awesome:
- Beach theme with swimsuits, colorful drinks, and fake palm trees
- Vegas theme with casino games, bright neon lights, and Elvis
- 50s theme with poodle skirts and old-time rock and roll
- Pink everything for a Barbie theme
- A final fiesta featuring Mexican food, margaritas, and a piñata
- Game night theme with board games and fun card games
- Masquerade or costume party theme
- Rainbows and glitter for a unicorn party theme
Décor and invites
Once you decide the theme and budget, you can plan the décor and send out the invites.
Make the invites match the theme and be sure to ask them to RSVP as soon as possible. You need to know how many people will be attending to plan the best party.
Choose some games
All bachelorette parties need games no matter whether it is a small get-together or a huge bash.
Of course, you want to try and match the games with the theme as much as possible. Here are some of our favorites:
- Beach blanket bingo
- How well do you know the bride?
- Bachelorette roulette
- Pin the kiss on the Mister
- Beer pong with fancy glasses
- Never have I ever
Secure transportation for the partygoers
No matter how many people you have and where you end up, you want to make sure everyone has a safe ride home. Your friends will appreciate it too. Plan for a party bus, limo, or hire an all-night Uber.
Some great spots to party
The list is endless in New York, but you want something that will fit your needs.

#2 Monarch Rooftop
If you have a huge guest list (and budget), check out the Monarch Rooftop on West 35th with room for 200 in the Skylight Lounge or 100 on the Royal Terrace.
They both have party planning, delicious cocktail appetizers, and a variety of drinks. Located on the 18th floor, this place is one of the best with views like no other.

For a smaller guest list, on the 21st floor of Hotel 50 Bowery, you can find the majestic Crown.
