Top 5 Hot Spots For Parties This Summer


While summer is a slower time in the city as many locals head out to the beaches, lakes and mountains, we put together a roundup of our favorite places for cocktails, gatherings with friends, private parties and some of the most spectacular sights of the city — think fab, fun and a little more elbow room this time of year. EVENTup is a company that makes finding the perfect venue easy, within your budget and simply beautiful.


#5: Hudson Terrace. Overlooking the Hudson River and the Intrepid, this indoor/outdoor space ushers out the good times from small intimate groups to full out galas, corporate events and after work revelers. It is one of New York’s most exceptional and desirable full-service event destinations. Their climate-control retractable roof makes it extra special on our list, particularly during the late day sun or a passing shower.

#4: Hornblower Cruise. Lady Liberty and the Hudson Harbor await your gang with maritime merriment and something only found in New York. Their premier vessels, the Infinity and the Hybrid, offer various amenities, including climate-controlled decks, state-of-the-art sound systems, custom LED lighting, flat screen TVs and other party options. We find this party on the river to be not only festive but an remarkable evening watching the city light up.

#3: CloudBar. Times Square has a new spectacular venue that will put your head almost in the clouds, 21 stories above the bustling streets. They offer a panoramic rooftop bar overlooking the city’s skyline. We can summarize the lounge in two words — breathtaking and colorful.

#2: Vista Penthouse Ballroom & Sky Lounge. The incredible views and tailored party options put the Vista Penthouse & Sky Lounge on our radar. The stunning vista and inspired cocktails won us over completely. This venue can handle small parties and up to 200 people with indoor/outdoor options. Many locals like to stop over for a cocktail after work.



#1: Allegria Hotel (Long Beach, NY). Toping our list is the Allegria Hotel, just a short train ride from Manhattan. The beautiful restaurant and lounge areas overlook the beach with the city in the distance. Weddings, parties, social gatherings make this kismet a popular destination place. We chose it not only for the space and views but also the cuisine. Stay the weekend and find out why Allegria offers the most popular and highly rated Sunday brunch, created by Executive Chef, Raed Jallad.
