Outdoor drinking has reached a new level.

The long-awaited rooftop bar at Hotel Le Bleu opened on Fourth Avenue last month, bringing sky-high revelry to the border of Park Slope and Gowanus.

Nearly two years after the indigo-hued, $200-a-night boutique hotel debuted next to a taxi garage and a nephrology center, the open-air watering hole is now serving up cocktails and snacks.

Dubbed Vue Restaurant and Lounge, the guys behind this rooftop tavern understand that the sweeping vista is the main attraction.

“The beautiful view alone makes it a special thing — there is nothing like it in the neighborho­od,” said Marco Gil, a spokesman for the rooftop bar.

Before 9 pm, enjoy panoramic views of the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn and Manhattan skylines and a happy hour featuring $3 beers, $4 wines, and $5 well drinks. After dark, try to find seat at the 30-foot long bar or hit the dancefloor.

Hotel Le Bleu’s Vue Restaurant and Lounge [370 Fourth Ave. between Third and Fifth streets in Gowanus, (718) 625-2177)], open Sunday to Wednesday, 5 pm to 2 am; Thursday to Saturday 5 pm to 3:30 am.
