GP's Stephen Fried discusses outdoor spaces.
Visit the Press Lounge which houses one of NY’s most fabulous outdoor facilities for all sorts of events. Portions of this rooftop space are enclosed inclement weather (so party rain or shine!). Located on the 16th floor of the Ink Hotel in Hells Kitchen, Press Lounge offers spectacular open views of the Manhattan skyline (pictured above!). But, don't take my word for it, the Press Lounge roofdeck received rave reviews from Urban Daddy.
The Mondrian, part of the Morgans Hotel Group, has an amazing outdoor space on the roof as well as a glass house restaurant and bar on the 1st floor with food from celebrity chef Sam Talbott. The hotel houses multiple meeting rooms as well as Mr. Hung, an exclusive lounge bar created by Armin Amiri and is available for private events.
Rounding out this weeks top picks for outdoor spaces is The Soho House. Although it’s a members only private club, you can rent the facility and its roof top pool area for corporate events and meetings, film shoots, and product launches.
