Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge
Perched 18 floors above the city, Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge boasts five carnival-themed distinct environments and is the largest indoor/outdoor all-season hotel rooftop in New York City. With a fully retractable roof perfect for any season, the venue has two indoor/outdoor main areas: The East side, overlooking the Empire State Building, has elegant garden-party fixtures, while the west is more overtly carnival-esque, offering a rotating carousel for seating. Tucked into a corner is the hotel’s most Instagrammed feature: Foreplay, a miniature putt-putt course that, instead of windmills, has follies of colossal-size animals in flirty poses. In between the two spaces, the venue’s gallery-like entrance hall features whimsical topiary animals in naughty positions, and a small interior lounge has a sexy urban-industrial vibe, with wire mesh panels riveted to the ceiling and walls.

The Beach at Dream Downtown
Channeling the glamour of the Côte d’Azur in the heart of New York City’s Meatpacking District, The Beach at Dream Downtown is the largest hotel pool in Manhattan boasting a 4,800 square foot beach and a glass bottom swimming pool looking into the hotel lobby with real Hamptons-imported sand. In honor of the summer season launch on Friday, May 24, The Beach will be launching new dining features, now available on OpenTable for the first time. Executive Chef Brad Warner has curated new re-imagined beach club fare menu items to share, with pacific island influences.
