Since opening last fall, Magic Hour Rooftop Bar & Lounge at the super-hip Moxy Times Square in NYC has earned a reputation as one of NYC’s best rooftop hangs. And now, there are 3 more reasons to head to this Midtown spot: a trio of large format, shareable cocktails.
Perfect for a night out with friends, these mega drinks are served in eye-catching vessels, including a sparkly disco ball, a popcorn bucket and a contraption reminiscent of high school physics class. Aside from being totally Instagram-ready, these drinks are yummy, too.
“As someone who frequently finds herself traveling around Manhattan, and even occasionally jumping on the LIRR out east, to check out the trendiest, most unique beverage offerings posted on social media, I knew I wanted Magic Hour to become one of these destinations,” explains Assistant Beverage Director Nikki McCutcheon. “As a consumer, I will travel further, and spend more, if its served in a cool vessel and guarantees exceptional social media content; because pics or it didn’t happen, right? Were you even out in Montauk if you didn’t drink out of the swan at Surf Lodge?”
McCutcheon adds that she will travel further, and spend more, if its served in a cool vessel and guarantees exceptional social media content.
“Pics or it didn’t happen, right?” she jokes. “Were you even out in Montauk if you didn’t drink out of the swan at Surf Lodge?”
Finding exciting, non-traditional vessels like the popcorn bucket and the disco ball punch bowl were key to creating the “Curiosities” offerings, large format options that add value and notoriety to the Magic Hour beverage program.
“Disco Ball for All is a classic vodka punch, using Bajan Tiki RIPE brand juice,” she continues. “It’s a really healthy alternative made with fresh-squeezed juices, nutmeg, and agave while Popcorn Anyone? is a fun bubbly cocktail using classically paired Strawberry flavors and Champagne. These extra special offerings are the magic in an otherwise vodka soda filled market!”
