The Ravel Hotel Welcomes Summer with the Rooftop Bar & Lounge, Overlooking the New York City Skyline
June 1, 2009
What better way is there to experience New York City than to spend an evening surrounded by the city’s breathtaking skyline? Located atop The Ravel Hotel, Long Island City’s first luxury boutique hotel, The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge is preparing to open its chic nightlife hotspot, just in time for the summer 2009 season.
As the weather gets warmer, The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge offers a refreshing alternative to Manhattan nightlife, boasting a 6,000 square-feet outdoor garden terrace, spacious 40-feet-long bar, and live music from the city’s hottest DJs—all against the backdrop of the city’s glittering nighttime skyline. The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge blends a sense of energy and fun with chic city style with sleek minimalistic furnishings, complemented by cheerfully bright plush seating. The space is intimately arranged, allowing guests to feel as though they are indulging in a secret rendezvous outside of Manhattan’s limits and under the serene beauty of the night sky. In addition to being the ideal place to spend a night-on-the-town, the rooftop space is also available for private events and wedding receptions, with catering available through the hotel. Additionally, guests seeking rest and relaxation under the warmth of the summer sun can find solace at the Rooftop Bar & Lounge during the day, reclining on luxurious cabanas and patio furniture.
This June, The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge is launching a series of weekly nighttime events throughout the summer. On Monday nights, Reel Mondays, outdoor film screenings will be held. Guests must reserve their spots in advance and will be provided with a blanket to offer cover from summer breezes, a bottle of champagne and a picnic basket filled with delicious treats to complement the movie-watching experience. Rocks & Rolls will feature a professional guest cigar roller every Tuesday Night for patrons to enjoy while sipping their cocktails. Wednesday evenings will be host to Noche En La Terraza (Night on the Terrace) — a Latin-infused salsa/samba night. Overflowing frozen Mojitos and Sangria, coupled with sizzling Latin sounds, will provide guests with a spicy midweek getaway. Rise @ Ravel will set a new standard for New York nightlife on Thursday nights. Partnering with Astoria’s chic Central Bar and Lounge, The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge will host a sophisticated, sexy happy hour and late-night fête that is the place to kick off any summer weekend.
Transportation to and from The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge is never a hassle. Having partnered with an exclusive Manhattan car service, The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge offers guest a shuttle service from anywhere in Manhattan to the Long Island City nightlife venue, and vice versa, for an affordable flat-fee of $25. Conveniently, guests may simply place a call into the hotel’s front desk and the Ravel Hotel staff will coordinate all the details. Valet service is also available for The Ravel Hotel Rooftop Bar & Lounge guests.
