Started by Josh Wood (also responsible for a similar rooftop party at Gansevoort Meatpacking), the party fully complies with the three requisites for fun: good-looking shirtless men, a nice pool, and tasty food. And when we walked by at around 5pm today—right after the annual Pride Parade had come to an end—the boys were ready to head upstairs and get wet.
Check out the scene every Sunday from 5:30pm to 9pm, and RSVP to their Facebook event here. The discerning eye will notice that the invite specifies a "pool and beach." Yes, that's right. A beach. Part of the hotel's pool area includes a sandy, beach-like patio with lounge chairs lined up in rows. Who needs the Hamptons, anyway?
No RSVP is required but you'll want to look your best. With all the people waiting to get inside, you're going to need to find a way to stand out from the crowd!
