Architectural Digest: The World’s 15 Most Beautiful Rooftop Bars and Restaurants

Opened in 2022, Nubeluz is the newest offering from renowned chef and humanitarian José Andrés. Situated on the 50th floor of the Ritz-Carlton, this space takes its name from the Spanish words for cloud (“nube”) and light (“luz”). With gorgeous 270-degree views of the New York cityscape, it’s an appropriate portmanteau. The venue was designed by Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly, and interiors are by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio. Its backlit jeweled-tone bar has seating for more than 130 people, with more space on two additional terraces. Nubeluz also offers a menu of haute-cuisine small bites, including oysters, foie gras, smoked salmon and jamón ibérico from Andrés’s native Spain.
