Time travel is possible. Tony Perrottet of The New York Times reveals that New Yorkers need only a MetroCard to transport themselves to the past. Our destination today? The incredibly romantic and entirely luxurious Gilded Age. As Perrottet’s article “Regilding the Gilded Age in New York” points out, The New York Palace offers its very own portal to the past, Rarities, an elite member of vintage Manhattan bars and lounges.
Opulent, yet refined, Rarities features rich fabrics, ornate décor and an aroma of the past. An enticing menu of pre-prohibition era spirits helps to set the scene, causing Perrottet to comment that, “it still feels like Villard could be cutting million-dollar deals over Cognac and cigars.” Rarities’ impressive menu includes genuine Gilded Age wines such as a rich 1888 Frapin Cognac and a robust 1900 Château Margaux.
Though monopolies and railroad magnates are firmly rooted in the past, Perrottet muses about today’s “masters of the universe”, an elite collection of entrepreneurs that would feel at home in the lounge’s supple leather arm chairs. The remarkable décor is all a part of the experience, with Perrottet noting that “walls lined with plush velvet wallpaper of arterial purple and brooding oil paintings behind golden frames” create an ambience unique to the Gilded Age. Unlike any NYC lounge you’ve experienced, Rarities embodies a comfortable and elegant atmosphere, accepting reservations for only 25 guests at a time. Make reservations today to secure your ticket to the Gilded Age, bowler hats and bustles are of course optional.
Experience a suite inspired entirely by the luxury of fine champagne. The Tower’s Champagne Suite boasts an undeniable effervescence, creating a distinctive hum that envelopes guests. Enrobed in dazzling shades of champagne and taupe, the Champagne Suite welcomes guests with a lavish Nouveau Nero marble foyer, inviting them into a world of possibilities.
The New York Palace invites you inside this distinctive hotel suite with an enticing virtual tour. Picture yourself crossing the threshold of the marble foyer to be greeted by two-stories of iconic Midtown Manhattan views. As you glance off to the side, you notice a breathtaking 29 foot wide mural by artists Alex et Marine adorns the wall below a stunning crystal pendant chandelier, a sparkling representation of the theme that permeates the three bedroom suite. Venture in a bit farther to find a personal wine cave, a fully-stocked space designed to add an air of authenticity to each stay.
Ascend the elegant marble staircase to find your way to the master bedroom featuring a private bath or to show your guests to the separate double Queen Bed room that offers its own air of elegance. Of course, the pinnacle of champagne suites simply must provide guests with a taste of the nectar. Fortunately, The Towers Champagne Suite features a library and tasting room were guests may sample various champagnes. After you’ve imbibed, use the in-suite elevator for express service to the suite’s private rooftop terrace, an ethereal outdoor space featuring a custom water-fall spa Jacuzzi.
