Owned by Helen Lee and Todd Leong, this New York-based botanical bar is inspired by nature.

Entitled 'Leaf Bar & Lounge,' the botanical bar certainly takes after its name in both its design and its menu items. Self-described as a "green oasis," the rooftop bar has a large balcony decorated with plenty of trees and wooden accents -- making it clear that this bar is meant to give the customer an unique natural experience despite its urban setting.

The drinks offered in this botanical bar are both visually and ingredients-wise inspired by nature -- with options such as a coffee cocktail made with an artichoke liqueur as well as a leaf, some cucumber and agave cocktail.

The fresh and natural ingredients used for menu items in this bar coupled with its natural design provide customers with a nature-like escape in a bustling city landscape.
