The Moxy Times Square Is Officially Open!

As of September 25th, the Moxy Times Square is officially open and we could not be more excited! Reinventing the traditional hotel experience and to bring Moxy to life in the Big Apple, a star team of collaborators were brought together: Lightstone the developer, Yabu Pushelberg for the design of the bedrooms, lobby and second floor public spaces, TAO Group to cultivate the food and beverage program, Rockwell Group to design the restaurant and bar spaces, and New Stand to run retail operations.

The Moxy is a one stop shop for the perfect dwelling, drinking, and dining destination, with various concepts within: Legasea, a seafood brasserie helmed by Executive Chef Jason Hall, featuring a menu of local, sustainable seafood dishes; Egghead, an all day breakfast shop and Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge, NYC’s largest all-season hotel rooftop bar and lounge, featuring an “urban amusement park” concept and incredible skyline views.

Magic Hour is set to disrupt the NYC rooftop game, “We need it to be attractive to locals, of course, but also comfortable for people visiting from Denmark or Delaware,” says TAO Group co-founder Noah Tepperberg. “We made Magic Hour more about attitude than exclusivity. If you’re here to have fun, no problem!”

The Tao Group also boasts an impressive miniature putt-putt course, Foreplay, that instead of windmills, has follies of colossal-size animals in compromising positions.

“Moxy pushes the envelope, so we tossed out the rulebook,” said Toni Stoeckl, Global Brand Leader and Vice President, Marriott International’s Distinctive Select Brands. “Together with Lightstone, we set out to create a new paradigm within the New York hotel scene by bringing together the best-in-class in design, food & beverage and retail and giving them the freedom to allow their imaginations to run wild. The result has been a hotel experience like no other – fun, edgy, playful, and all at a killer price.”
