New York’s’ Hottest Rooftop and Outdoor Dining to Enjoy the last of Summer!

Gitano Island

Gitano Island is a tropical restaurant and beach club on Governors Island, NYC.  After four sensational seasons in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, the team behind GITANO has taken on the ambitious venture of transporting the Garden of Love Restaurant to a new 27,000 square foot waterfront setting, just a 5 minute ferry ride from downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn.  Previewed in June 2022 and open for the Summer season, this tropical oasis of lush greenery and bohemian brio brings locals an air of Tulum without ever leaving New York City.  GITANO Island is lined with giant palm trees and hundreds of tropical plants and the dramatic 600 capacity Restaurant and Beach Club includes familiar elements like the iconic black Bedouin Dining Tent with 360 marble bar, the Twin Dining Pergolas and Open Fired Kitchen with the addition of exciting new elements including a Beach Club complete with Sunbeds and Tipis, a new CLUB GITANO members lounge centered around a 40’ water feature and a giant disco ball suspended over the water.  For the first time ever in NYC, GITANO will introduce a tented stage and an exciting program of local and international DJs and live artist performances.

The Standard Grill – Chelsea

Opened in 2009, The Standard Grill immediately became an icon of the Meatpacking District renaissance, celebrating the flavors and traditions of old New York with a contemporary edge. In those days, NYC’s brasserie culture was in desperate need of a shake-up and The Standard, High Line was the perfect spot to reinterpret a classic. Many years, cocktails and parties later, The Standard Grill remains a fixture of the downtown dining scene. Unbound by rules and conventions, The Standard Grill has the familiar feel of a neighborhood bistro—remixed with The Standard’s buzzy, international sensibility. Live entertainment and luxe finishes elevate the timeless atmosphere to new heights. Defined by bold flavors, the finest ingredients and an unmistakable New York attitude, The Standard Grill pioneers New American cuisine wherever it lands. The Standard Grill also has two exciting programming- the Bloody Mary Bar, where guests can build their own Bloody Mary (image here) for just $16 with top-tier garnishes (imagery here) and the Extra (Dirty) Happy Hour, where guests can enjoy $8 Martinis (full happy hour menu here). The latest destination is Bangkok, where locals and global travelers will get a taste of this award-winning New York City icon. You can find the full menu here.

Take a visually immersive trip into a 1960’s Mod-inspired rink and restaurant, with black turf and playful seating surrounding the bright white skating rink. For skaters and non-skaters alike, the rink menu will feature tasty bites such as Disco Fries, Fried Chicken, The Standard Hot Dog and Nachos. Cocktails can also be sipped from a wearable drink pouch, allowing for hands-free fun as you cruise around the rink. The Roller Rink brings life to the hotel’s Plaza space, celebrating all forms of skate culture. Weekly programming and events will include silent-skate nights, disco parties, burlesque, drag shows and designated kids- and adult-only skate hours. Rental skates are available for all guests in the Skate Shack.
