The historic Plaza Hotel NYC is definitely one of the great gems of the city. Located near Central Park and Fifth Avenue, this iconic luxury hotel has a long list of famous guests who have stayed in its luxurious rooms over the years.

Throughout its century-long history, it has served as the backdrop for many novels, films, and other forms of media, adding to its allure.

Whether you choose to stay at the iconic Plaza Hotel or reserve a date night here at this iconic hotel, the Champagne Room at the Plaza is worth consideration.

In the late evenings and nights, the Champagne Room transforms into a luxurious place to celebrate with family, and friends, or the ultimate date idea in NYC.

Sip frosty glasses of premium champagne, and have a champagne flight while enjoying delectable treats like caviar and divine wines. Share small plates or a seafood tower for a sensual experience.

And don’t miss out on the views – guests can sip their drinks while marveling at the grandiose Pulitzer Fountain and Fifth Avenue right outside the window. Reservations are highly recommended here.

Have an Experience

New York City is full of experiences that couples can enjoy together and can be quite fun and entertaining.

Day Trip to Untermyer Gardens Conservatory

Untermyer Park and Gardens is a picturesque city park in Yonkers, New York. Located just north of NYC, Untermyer Gardens Conservatory is a hidden gem and well worth the short trip.

This 43-acre estate features a restored garden- the Walled Garden, a picturesque and tranquil Indo-Persian-inspired garden, and the Vista, dramatic tree-lined stairs that cascade down to a breathtaking overlook of the Hudson River and Palisades.

While one hour is plenty of time for taking in all that the park has to offer, we suggest strolling at an unhurried pace so you can fully appreciate the unique charm and atmosphere of this inviting spot.

Another feature of the Conservatory is a small yet stunning Grecian amphitheater where you can celebrate a little romance in New York by enjoying music, a play, or even getting married.

Climb the “The Temple of Love” – a stunning rock-and-water feature that then extends to a well as a long staircase from the Walled Garden to an overlook with magnificent views of the Hudson River and the Palisades (particularly fantastic in fall).

Sleep No More at the McKittrick Hotel is probably one of the craziest experiences I have personally had in New York City and trying to explain how it works, what happens, and how is impossible. It’s an experience and you will leave wondering what happened but in a good way.

Constructed with the intention of being NYC’s premier luxury hotel back in 1939 but condemned days after the start of World War II and permanently for over 80 years, the Mckitterick Hotel has been professionally restored to an elegant and mysterious space, collaborating with London-based PUNCHDRUNK to bring SLEEP NO MORE based on Shakespeare’s Scottish tragedy to life.

You and your date will grab a Macbeth mask, and head through the Mckitterick Hotel, for an immersive theatre experience where you interact with broadway actors and rooms filled with trinkets and oddities. You will enter rooms, climb stairs, destinations, jazz clubs, and some play scenes that will leave little to the imagination.
