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.
Our Foreplay is currently unavailable to remain Covid compliant. 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..
LIGHT BITES & ON ICE
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 is available along with beer, wine, Champagne, and spirits.
