1. Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge

The Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge at Moxy Times Square is known for its instagrammable rooftop and showstopping holiday installs. This season, the skyline-level bar makes it possible to go skiing in New York City at The Pink Winter Lodge – Frosted Edition. The newest edition of Magic Hour’s beloved Pink Winter Lodge Holiday pop-up features the iconic carousel glistening with over 25,000 rhinestones nestled in between hanging snowy branches, a sparkling white gondola set to the backdrop of the Empire State building, white rustic chandeliers, a winter white fireplace flocked with icy garland, and of course – frosted white Christmas trees to create a Winter wonderland.  

Tao Group Hospitality, in collaboration with Design House Décor, created a fresh take on Magic Hour’s Pink Winter Lodge with fresh, frosted details such as white hanging amaranthus creating an icicle effect, flocked trees, snowy branches, a white candlelit fireplace, and ski lodge inspired decor including skis, faux white taxidermy and more.  

A new photo-worthy, holiday-themed menu includes specials such as: Pink Campfire S’mores, Snow Powder Donuts, Frosted Cupcakes, an Après Ski boozy hot chocolate, Double Pink Diamond reposado cocktail and more.
