W New York Downtown's Summer Nights on "The Terrace"
Pre-Memorial Day we boldly announced the beginning of rooftop bar season worldwide. We have the chops to make such declarations. But in New York, specifically, the W New York – Downtown, the hotel decided the official start of summer would be called “Terrace Fest”. Why? Well, cuz they don’t really have a rooftop, per se, but their fifth floor Living Room outdoor is as good as any officially designated spot we’ve seen in our extensive NYC list (and you’ll see more soon!).
The W kicked off their summer soirees on May 29th, but no worries, there'll still be loads of parties to attend as the season winds on. In fact, there’s one tomorrow, June 4th, called “Travel Tuesday: Transport to W South Beach”! This is for the poor souls who can’t hop down to their outrageously cool Florida outpost of the brand, so they’ve brought it to Lower Manhattan, instead.
It’ll be part of the hotel’s weekly Travel Tuesday feature, which runs from 6-10pm and we
anticipate an alternate universe of both beautifully and casually-coiffed people excited to see the stunning front-and-center view spots of 1 World Trade Center’s new Spire. DJ Nichol brings the Miami mix, while contests and prizes are doled out in addition to tiny bites (Cuban sliders! peekytoe crab) and creative cocktails like Pavan Sangria.
During our visit it was a Belvedere sponsor night, but others have included 10 Cane Rum, so you never know what special sippers will be handed out (gratis!) by the chic waitstaff.
Cheers to summer!
If you were to check in for a night at the W, the rate is coming it at a staggering $589 per night. Luckily tickets to the event are a more reasonable $45 per person. Tickets can be purchased here.
