Midtown In Motion

THINKING ABOUT A PIED À TERRE? HERE’S A TIP: THE IROQUOIS NEW YORK is like having your own exclusive residence. Its elite address: W. 44th between 5th and 6th, is shared with the tony Harvard and New York Yacht Clubs. The Iroquois is a small, sophisticated hotel, a stark contrast from the new chain hotels framing the theatre district. As you sip your morning coffee reading the New York Times from the hotel’s petite ‘New York Library’ you’re a relaxed observer of midtown in motion.

The location is superb; Grand Central is just a couple blocks away. The theatre district is so close; you can walk over for a matinee. No need for a cab, no need for a car or Uber. The concierge and staff welcome you back by name; there’s plenty of time to rest and regroup before an evening Broadway show or concert at Radio City.

Looking for a cocktail at one of New York’s historic bars? Lantern’s Keep is right in The Iroquois. Enter through the back of the lobby and discover this hidden Parisian cocktail salon with only 24 coveted seats. A craft-cocktail menu offers Lantern’s Keep Originals and drinks served every which way: Shaken Up, Shaken Rocks, Stirred Up, and an eclectic list of small plates from oysters to bison. Jazz plays, mixologists pour from rows of science bottles filled with bitters, almond syrup, ginger syrup, honey, like MIT geniuses enthralled in a cocktail lab. A great spot for a private gathering!
