Give Dad a Gift that He Actually Wants for Father’s Day

Dad simply does not need another tie. This year, The New York Palace invites you to spend Father’s Day in NYC so that dad can do what he loves with the ones he loves. Every dad is different, so we’ve come up with a few suggested activities to help you plan the perfect Father’s Day.

For The Sports Enthusiast

Bring dad to Citi Field to watch the Mets play on Friday or Saturday and then spend Sunday at Pier 59. The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers is celebrating dad by offering him a complimentary $25 ball card when a family member purchases a ball card. After dad’s swing puts you to shame, walk right next door to The Chelsea Brewing Company  to enjoy a fresh microbrew and a bite to eat.

For the Literary Connoisseur

Begin your Father’s Day in New York City with a trip to the famous Strand Book Store where you’ll find 18 miles of new, used, rare and out-of-print books. After dad has added to his library, head up to 67th Street and 5th Avenue where you’ll find a pedestrian’s path through Central Park that leads to The Mall and the Literary Walk. Grab a cup of coffee and walk the circle to stop at the statues of Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott and William Shakespeare. Cap off the day by dining al fresco at Palace Gate, The New York Palace’s seasonal outdoor café, while sipping on a classic cocktail and enjoying the architectural splendor of the Villard Mansion.

For the Pampered Papa

Dad may want to take a break from everyday life to pamper himself this Father’s Day. Take a quick walk to The Art of Shaving on 53rd Street and Madison Avenue to purchase specialty toiletries that will give dad the perfect morning shave. Afterwards, spoil dad with personalized treatments at The New York Palace Spa , where our world class massage therapists will work out all of his muscular tension leaving him rested and relaxed for a delicious dinner.

Regardless of your father’s interests, Father’s Day would not be complete without an incredible meal. Villard Michel Richard  at The New York Palace offers delectable dishes designed to match the beauty of the dining room. After dinner, hide away at Trouble’s Trust, midtown’s newest cocktail bar and lounge nestled just under The Palace’s lobby stairs. Dad will love the list of vintage specialty cocktails making it the perfect way to end what is certain to be an unforgettable weekend.
