The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park is set to officially re-launch its extravagant club level lounge as of this week. The only five-diamond private club lounge in New York will open its doors this Thursday, September 1. The opulent lounge initially opened after a multi-million dollar hotel renovation in 2019 but was cut short due to the pandemic.
The stunning five-diamond lounge is tucked into the hotel’s second floor with unobstructed views of Central Park throughout the 3,000+ square-foot space. The Club Lounge boasts enough seating for fifty people and features a combination of sophisticated and colorful interior decor, including dark wood paneling, leather and velvet fabrics, and contrasting pops of green.
The exclusive experience is positioned as a unique selling point of the hotel with curated dining experiences that include everything from a Champagne cart and caviar to wine and spirit tastings hosted by mixologists and renowned sommeliers. The exclusive wellness-inspired menu will include a rotating daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu with playful takes on classic ingredients and dishes. Guests can expect to find culinary offerings from local producers including Bouchon Bakery, Kings County Distillery, and Brooklyn Cured Meats.
“As New York City tourism continues to rebound, we are thrilled to open our beloved Club Lounge without limitations, just in time for the busy holiday season,” General Manager Douglas Housley shared in a press release earlier this week.
