Rooftop season is coming to an end as we enter into winter temps, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t enjoy a nice cocktail overlooking different scenic parts of the Garden State.

One of the highly-rated rooftop bars in New Jersey has a 360-degree view of the Manhattan skyline and is actually open for the winter.

RoofTop at Exchange Place offers indoor and outdoor experiences where you can cozy up to a nice fire with some comfort food and seasonal drinks.

The rooftop menu has an assortment of high-end bar food like Cajun fries, buffalo cauliflower bites, coconut shrimp, and wings.

Aside from your go-to bar drinks, the cocktail menu is seasonal and offers drinks like a cinnamon maple Old Fashioned and a punchy Apple Mule.

So a nice cocktail, comfort food, and a view of the city skyline sitting next to the fire pit sounds like a perfect winter night to me.

RoofTop at Exchange Place is located in Exchange Place in Jersey City.
