The Pierre is a NY icon—undoubtedly one of the city’s most famous and beloved hotels. One of the many reasons for our love affair with this institution is its ideal location; Central Park is literally in the Pierre’s front yard.
Accordingly, the hotel offers year-round ways to enjoy its location and its loveliness, making sure out-of-towners aren’t the only ones to have all the fun.
Here are just a few of the ways New Yorkers and visitors alike can make the most of summer at The Pierre.
Summer Ice Cream Flights at Two E Lounge
When you combine one of the swankiest settings in the city with the season’s best desserts, you get a deliciously winning combination. Served daily from 3pm until close, these frozen flights include miniature-sized cones of four flavors: Wild Blueberry Verbena, White Peach Raspberry, Alphonso Mango, and White Chocolate Strawberry. And if that’s not enough, the addition of a 70% dark chocolate pistachio parfait pop and mini macaroons truly take the treat to the next level.
On the Go Picnic Hampers
What’s better than a picnic in Central Park? How about a gourmet picnic basket for two that’s pre-made and ready to enjoy? Choose from three different basket selections—with the option to add a bottle of Veuve Clicquot—and enjoy treats such as crudités with artichoke dip, freshly squeezed juices, smoked salmon baguettes, peanut butter cookies, and more.
Rosé and Oysters at Sirio Ristorante
Rosé is summer in a glass, and oysters are the ocean on a plate—together, they’re pretty much everything the season should taste like. With East Coast oysters brought in fresh daily from local fishermen for only $1 each, and $9 glasses of rosé, this is the best happy hour you’ll find in the city this summer. Available from 4pm to 7pm daily.
Perfectly Pierre Central Park Weekend
Spend a weekend away, without ever leaving the city. This package, ideal for a summer staycation, includes a VIP edible children’s welcome amenity, complimentary family tickets to the Central Park Zoo and the Victorian Gardens in Central Park, daily continental breakfast at Sirio, and overnight accommodations in a city view room. It’s the perfect way to be reminded of how special our city is, and how lucky we are to have Central Park at our doorstep.
