You can always feel the good vibes coming from this buzzy LES hot spot at Hotel Indigo Lower East Side. The space features both indoor and outdoor space perfect for a party during the summer season. Using downtown New York as a backdrop, the interior space is complemented by two terraces. The smaller eastern terrace is perfect for an intimate gathering while the larger terrace located on the west side of the space has its own swimming pool, bar and variety of seating options including chaise lounges, banquettes, and high top communal tables.

As the sun goes down, ride the elevator up to Magic Hour, New York City’s largest indoor/outdoor all-season hotel rooftop bar and lounge, the latest NYC development from the TAO Group.

The 10,000 square foot rooftop boasts incredible views of the Empire State Building as well as carousel seating, an oversized topiary garden, and Foreplay, a miniature putt-putt, featuring life-size animals in compromising positions. An unonventional addition to the menu is the option to book one of the hotel’s nineteen Crashpads – meant for those who may have had a few too many rounds on the carousel or simply don’t want the night to end.

Set apart by teak doors, The Polynesian’s private lounge is veteran craft bartender Brian Miller’s homage to all things Rum and pirate-related. Suggesting a nautical abode and offering hundreds of vintage, rare and off-beat Rums, it is bedecked with Tiki carvings, red curtains and pirate portraits. Located inside the Pod Times Square Hotel, The Polynesian offers a 21st century Tiki experience with elevated cocktails, nostalgic fare, and opulent décor.
