Even though it doesn't always feel like it's almost summer, Sonny's Soda Shoppe is ready to go: The indoor-outdoor penthouse rooftop space of the Mondrian Soho in the space formerly home to the boozy juice bar Soaked is a turf-laden Italian beach club, with its own bathing beauty mascot and cocktails ($18) paying homage to the motherland. There are drinks like the Dolce Verde, made lacing Avion Blanco, honeydew, lime, arugula, and tarragon with olive oil; and a Blood-Orange Float with Don Julio Anejo, blood orange soda, and chartreuse with vanilla gelato. And speaking of gelato, a rotating list of the dessert comes courtesy of Il Laboratorio del Gelato, and you can enjoy pizza with the spectacular 360-degree views, too.
