Football Sundays

We’re showing all the New York football action on multiple Flatscreen TV’s every Sunday at 11:30AM! In addition to our all-day food and drink menu, you’ll have access to our brunch menu which is available until 3:30PM. Reservations are required.


Perched 18 floors above the city, Magic Hour boasts five distinct environments. The gallery-like entrance hall features whimsical topiary animals in naughty positions. A small interior lounge has a sexy urban-industrial vibe, with wire mesh panels riveted to the ceiling and walls. There are two separate outdoor areas: The east side, overlooking the Empire State Building, has elegant garden-party fixtures, while the west is more overtly carnival-esque, with one seating area rotating slowly like an antique carousel.


Tucked into a corner is what’s bound to be the hotel’s most Instagrammed feature: Foreplay, a miniature putt-putt course designed by Tao Group Hospitality, that, instead of windmills, has follies of colossal-size animals in flirty poses..


A menu of shareable light bites is rooted in the world of the state fair, with modern takes on classics. An impressive list of decadent and sharable cocktails like the Disco Ball For All is available along with beer, wine, Champagne, and spirits.


With 10,000 square feet of multi-purpose space, the rooftop is a perfect place for special events. Event planning, catering by Tao Group Hospitality and advanced audiovisual services are available upon request.
