Hello Midtown East


If you want to experience the bustling New York City of movies and postcards, look no further than the energetic Midtown location of Midtown East. Home to countless Gotham landmarks, world-class restaurants and shopping, and architectural points of interest—from glistening Art Deco skyscrapers to towering Tudor-style apartments—the neighborhood has plenty for visitors to see, eat, and do without traveling too far. The area doesn’t just attract tourists either: prominent American companies like Bloomberg, Capital One, and Pfizer have set up their headquarters in the neighborhood. Then there’s the United Nations, which sits a hop skip away from the Fifty Hotels & Suites and plays host to some of the world’s most important diplomats.

By night, the neighborhood quiets down considerably, offering dining options that range from relaxed to refined. Whether you’re looking for a classic New York City Irish pub or a swanky club and lounge, you’ll find something worthwhile in Midtown East. Here, check out Midtown East’s best bars, restaurants, shopping, and attractions.

Midtown East is where you’ll find the New York City of postcards. The one where city streets bustle with busy passersby. Where towering Art Deco skyscrapers glitter high overhead. Where something new and exciting to experience seems to be on every corner.

Offering so much to do and see, it’s an ideal place to enjoy all that Manhattan has to offer. Iconic landmarks, top attractions, Michelin-starred restaurants, and world-class shopping can easily be spotted on any Midtown New York map. It’s an area of great convenience — and not only for visitors.

Corporate headquarters of prominent companies, like Bloomberg, Capital One, and Pfizer, as well as some of the most desirable residential buildings in Manhattan, call East Midtown home. Thus, the atmosphere here isn’t what you’ll find in trendy Downtown neighborhoods. In the evening, the vibe is more refined, with plenty of restaurants, shops, and bars to experience well after the sun goes down.

We have also recently partnered with Above and Beyond VIP Concierge (ABCVIP) which is a hospitality and event agency that partners with local venues and virtual talent to curate unique experiential packages that are prearranged, exclusive, and all-inclusive.
