Summer doesn't last all year, but that's no reason to retreat from the city's best rooftops.

The same places that can be so breezy in the summer can be quite cozy in the colder months -- whether you're channeling your summer self with a tiki drink or holding a hot toddy and taking in the winter view through a floor-to-ceiling window.

Enjoy, and don't forget to take a sky-high selfie.

The Ides is a hotel bar, but it's a hotel bar in Williamsburg, so the clientele is a little bit more hipster artist than hedge fund manager. It's located on the roof of the Wythe Hotel, and offers sweeping views of the east side of Manhattan and the East River. If you want to hang out in Williamsburg, but above the fray, this is the place for you. The indoor section is a perfect spot to warm up with seasonal hot cocktails and take in the view through giant glass windows. 80 Wythe St., Williamsburg, wythehotel.com/the-ides, 718-460-8006
