The Moxy Times Square hotel’s rooftop is open year-round for drinks, food and NYC skyline views, but its 10,000-square-foot space might look a little different depending on when you visit.
Magic Hour, on the hotel’s 18th floor, gets a timely refresh each season with new, Instagrammable installations. Starting Friday, November 19, Magic Hour’s Pink Rose Garden will become The Pink Winter Lodge–replete with après-ski-themes but sans the pesky powder.
The reimagined space is lined with pink logs, and its cozy carousel section is adorned in frosted pink blooms and 25,000 faux-crystals, with seats fashioned after ski-lifts. In addition to that obvious photo-op, a flower arch crowned with pink antler chandeliers is primed for posing, and a pink gondola is nestled in matching pine trees on the rooftop’s east side. Ice skates and ersatz diamond-encrusted skis further accessorize the space.
Magic Hour’s wintery cocktails include the tequila-based Double Pink Diamond and the especially apt Après Ski, with vodka, white chocolate liqueur, soy milk and mini marshmallows. Seasonal sweets like glitter-dusted ‘Pink Bling’ donut rings and cotton candy-topped s’mores stacks are also on the menu.
