Open for outdoor dining only
If you want a relaxed nightclub experience, then you need to get to Magic Hour club in New York. It is New York City's largest indoor and outdoor all season rooftop club, bar, and lounge. Located in the Moxy Hotels building, 18 floors up, Magic Hour is split into five different environments.
The giant animal girls outside are great fun. They are topiary animals cut into fun and suggestive positions, in case there was any doubt in your mind that you were attending an adult oriented venue. Further inside this continues with Foreplay, their mini golf course with humanoid animals in sexy poses instead of the usual windmill challenges.
The rest of the venue has a sort of fairground feel to it. There is a small interior lounge with a bit of an industrial feel to it, with wire panels, metal frames, and a rough finish. The bare lightbulbs and curtains, and metal finishes tend to continue as a trend throughout the building.
The East side outdoor space overlooks the Empire State Building and is decorated as an upscale garden party. The West side is a true carnival of fun, with one seating area even rotating like a fairground carousel. Look out for the elephant lamp!
The decor everywhere is trendy and quirky, with a medley of prints and patterns on the furniture that somehow comes together just right. The indoor plants add an extra layer of wild and quirky fun to this venue. There are sexy animals and circus themes everywhere, but they fit in so well that you might only notice them when looking closely.
With all round full length windows you will be able to look out over the city at night, which is a beautiful sight to behold. If you choose to sit on the rotating platform you get a great view of the city from different angles as you spin.
The Magic Hour nightclub boasts a full bar with some top name brands and plenty of delicious speciality cocktails. None of the cocktails are very strong, and you will probably want bottle service or just straight shots if you want to get a real buzz going.
The venue sells a selection of light bites, in case you want something to eat before the party starts, or to revive you for the dance floor. They are all unique creations from their own kitchen, and are based on classic dishes with a nice twist.
There is a coat check available at the door, and the staff everywhere are very friendly and eager to please. If you need anything at all just ask them and they will probably comply, or at least see what they can do.
Because the venue can be very busy they encourage making reservations. They are actually so busy that just because you make a reservation doesn't mean you have it! You will need to wait for a reply to confirm your reservation has been made and there is a table for you.
