TRUE MANHATTAN STYLE

Make sure we feel the part by adorning ourselves with an elegant and chic style, we'll be Don and Betty Draper for a few days. Jump between the world renowned retailers of Bloomingdales, Paul Stuart and Bergdorf Goodman all in the capable hands of our personal stylist, there to hand-pick us a brand new wardrobe; the ultimate, indulgent VIP service.
From here our chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce will take us to Grand Central, home of the Oyster Bar and the Campbell Apartment providing us with a lovely lunch of delectable delicious fresh fish and oysters washed down with a Prohibition Punch.
Let's take a step back in time in the afternoon with a private tour of the city. Immerse ourselves in the sights Don Draper would witness whilst taking a lunch time stroll to grab another pack of cigarettes, walking past the 1960s architecture of the Seagram Building, the Pam Am building and the Lever House.

NEW YORK DRINKING HOLES

Once we’ve decided which of our new outfits to show off, I'll arrange a private guide to show us around the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim, discussing all the thought-provoking art on display. Maybe make some thought provoking art of our own...
Then over to Alice’s Tea Cup, an enchanting cafe, and choose from a menu inspired by traditional tea with a twist. Why not indulge in The Jabberwocky Tea, an unlimited selection of their delightful scones, sandwiches and cakes?
After the sun has set, we take a tour of the city’s creative, prohibition-era inspired bars, treating ourselves to a lesson in the easy refinement of cocktail culture. Find the unmarked door for Bathtub Gin, press the doorbell to gain entry into the Raines Law Room, dial 1 in the vintage phone booth to access the Please Don’t Tell bar, and down the stars through the kitchen and into the private club known as... As it is famously the city which never sleeps, lets feel free to stay out as long as we want. But we would recommend finishing our night with a dry Martini, a timeless classic. You can make mine a Hendrick's Gin shaken until the ice breaks with a lemon twist.

HARLEM SHAKE

s 'sTake a journey to a different side of New York’s history with a trip to Harlem. Learn all about its eclectic past with its fascinating origins as a rural Dutch community to its creative development as an African-American Mecca for writers and artists at the turn of the century.
Round off our long weekend with a dinner of contemporary French cuisine at the elegant Daniel and drinks at the imaginative Apotheke Cocktail Bar, inspired by the history of European apothecary’s. These two establishments provide the perfect send-off memories till our next visit to this addictive city.

Location

Characterized by its bright red-domed awnings and large bronze logo inscripted on the sidewalk, New York’s Hôtel Plaza Athénée has regally resided at 37 East 64th Street between Park and Madison Avenues since 1984. This discreet 143-room hotel has been a home away from home to travelers, celebrities and titans of industry who appreciate its luxurious and discreet style, personal attention by the long-term staff and superb Upper East Side Manhattan location.

The Hôtel Plaza Athénée is quintessential New York high class. Only a block away from Central Park it sits in the prestigious district of Manhattan’s Upper East Side. And with some of the world’s famous calling The Plaza Athénée a home-away-from-home, expect to rub shoulders with various celebrities in its house bar: Bar Seine. Athénée accommodates 143 opulent rooms, all individually decorated with a hint of European flare; they are grand in size and provide stunning views of bustling Manhattan. So while on a luxury holiday in New York, I believe this is where one should always rest ones head.

LOCATION

A 45 minute drive by private car and even shorter helicopter ride from JFK international airport will have us weaving in and out of yellow cabs before arriving at one of the most admired address in Manhattan: the Upper East Side. Just a shopping bag away from Madison Avenue and a block from Central Park, this is the ideal location for city shopping and culture seekers such as us.

OUR ROOM

Pure decadence oozes from every inch of our luxury pad. No two rooms are the same, but feature rich Italian Sferra linens, luxurious Asian inspired silks and warm tones which showcase their European style. A selection of guest rooms and suites are decked out with enlarged marble bathrooms and deep soaking tubs with dual sinks, as well as birch hardwood floors to strut our stuff around. With dazzling views of the glittering New York skyline, it’s the perfect backdrop for a romantic night in or to simply recuperate after burning a hole in (y)our pocket down Madison Avenue. For the crème de la crème we can check into the Presidential Suite, boasting 2,000 square feet of luxurious space, it’s bigger than most New Yorkers’ apartments. Well at least bigger than my first one on 14th St.

WHY I LIKE IT

After wandering the ‘city that never sleeps’ sights, there is nothing greater than escaping to The Plaza Athénée Spa. Featuring four Asian themed private treatment suites it is the epitome of luxury and indulgence, and designed with natural elements offering the comfort and splendour for which the hotel has become known. My favourite (and keeping with the Asian theme) is the Thai massage - YES!!!, I felt like I was walking in a new body after that hour. If that’s not enough the Plaza Athénée Spa is the only luxury hotel spa in NYC that hosts Valmont Cosmetics skin care all the way from Switzerland. Using natural ingredients Valmont rejuvenises the skin leaving one feeling inspired and ready to hit the city. Let the sparkle begin!

    She is the best tourguide I could ever hope for. Makes my monthly business trips and business dinners to NYC all the more bearable. Her knowledge of the city both epicurean and carnal are almost the reason I take meetings here!
