The Library Hotel in Midtown, where each floor is titled after Dewey Decimal System categories, has a rooftop lounge called Bookmarks... because what else would it be called? A literary air runs throughout, or rather a corporate version of it, with a mahogany fireplace in the interior and fancy patio furniture out on the terrace. Cocktails like The Pulitzer (gin, elderflower liqueur, Fernet, agave nectar) and Dante's Inferno (mezcal, blood orange liqueur, Aperol) don't let you forget that books -- or at least the idea of them -- are what the place is all about.
