“We are thrilled to host The Knickerbocker’s second New Year’s Eve celebration in more than 95 years and we guarantee a unique experience for our guests on one of New York City’s most magical nights,” said Shawn Hauver, Managing Director of The Knickerbocker Hotel. “Whether you want to dine with Charlie Palmer or dance the night away, we are offering an unforgettable evening that will become your New Year’s tradition.”
Guests who purchase the St. Cloud Rooftop Experience will enjoy the closest view to the Ball Drop from the hotel’s rooftop bar and lounge St. Cloud, a mere 150 feet below the Times Square Ball. This cocktail attire event, taking place from 8:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m., will also feature live entertainment from DJ Sam French and accompanying instrumentalist, a full premium open bar, passed dinner, passed Hors d’oeuvres and food stations, and a champagne toast hosted at midnight. The St. Cloud Rooftop Experience starts at $4,300 and includes two event tickets.
Private, yet still in the middle of it all, the St. Cloud Rooftop features three plush Sky Pods that welcome groups of 12 to 20 guests and are situated at the epicenter of the festivities, with a corner view directly over Times Square, 42nd Street and Broadway. Guests looking for a ‘priceless’ VIP experience may reserve a Sky Pod and enjoy bottle service, as well as an elevated menu customized by the chef and tailored to the guest’s preferences. Pricing available upon request.
The hotel’s fourth floor signature restaurant, Charlie Palmer at The Knick, will also open for regular service and hours on December 31 with a prix-fixe menu for guests who wish to dine in the restaurant.
“New Year’s Eve is the most momentous celebration in New York City and nowhere more so than right here in Times Square,” says Chef Charlie Palmer. “Chef Adin Langille and I are developing menus and specials to match the opulence of The Knickerbocker’s legendary New Year’s celebrations and we look forward to hosting an epic evening of food and drink.”
Originally opened in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, The Knickerbocker reopened in February 2015 as the only five-star hotel located at the edge of Times Square. The now 330-room hotel has witnessed and influenced more than a century of New York history. As the rumored birthplace of the original martini, the legendary Beaux Arts landmark pulses with the energy of contemporary New York. 2016 will mark the hotel’s second New Year’s Eve celebration in over 95 years after Prohibition caused the hotel to close in 1921.
