Where to Grab a Drink in NYC Right Now
Since debuting last August under its former name of Runaway Roof, this Bushwick venue rebranded this year as Runaway BK after launching its newest onsite concept and ground floor restaurant: Runaway Diner. With this latest addition, the spot is the homebase to three destinations that include Runaway Pinky’s and Runaway The Wild, both of which are cocktail spots offering rooftop views of its industrial neighborhood and also Manhattan. With plenty of fun vibes and fresh air, kick back with your crew while sipping on signature drinks like the Salty Perrita (mezcal/tequila, grapefruit) and Mimi Fizz (prosecco, cherry heering, orange juice) or snacking on loaded latkes with bacon, cheddar, and scallion; deviled eggs; and biscuits and gravy.

“Run away to get away” is right when it comes to Bushwick’s Runaway rooftop. Runaway has everything your summer-self could need: bocce courts, movie screenings, rooftop yoga and picnic cuisine. “Succeed by bringing joy” is their goal according to co-owner and general manager Kate Buenaflor, and that they have done after launching mid-pandemic and now reopening for the summer. Nothing says summertime high like keeping your Mountain Lady (gin, tonic, lime, rosemary, and mint) steady in hand, while letting your competitive side flourish on the bocce court.
