Forget Times Square and the Statue of Liberty. If you want to see the real New York, you have to follow the locals. Some of New York’s most interesting, historic, and culturally diverse neighborhoods, with singularly fantastic dining, drinking, shopping, and entertainment, are often just slightly off the beaten path. The concierges at Viceroy Central Park will point you in the right direction.

Guide to caffeinating in Midtown Manhattan

The coffee culture in New York has come a long way with an array of worldly options. These are some of my favorites, although there’s plenty more great options throughout NYC. 

1385 6th Ave between 56th & 57th Sts. 
Monday - Friday : 7am - 7pm
Saturday : 9am - 6pm
Sunday : 10am - 5pm

Everybody at Zibetto takes great pride in what they do and serve.  Their unique coffee blend is purely made from carefully chosen beans, roasted to perfection in Italy. Their menu offers delicious Italian pastries, paninis as well as refreshing drinks.  Everything imported from the best producers in the world.  That sounds expensive.  No, not really.  A visit to Zibetto is not a once a week experience.  They see their espresso as a luxury you can afford every day. And for that reason they keep moderate prices. 

Little Collins
667 Lexington Ave between 55th & 56th Sts.
Monday - Friday : 7am - 5pm
Saturday & Sunday : 8am - 4pm

Pays homage to the spirit of the bustling street in Melbourne, Australia, after which it is named.  Every aspect of the café has been designed with the customer experience in mind. From the chic, industrial interior to the delicious, no-nonsense menu to the music that fills the space, Little Collins hits all the senses and makes people feel transported and completely at home, all at once. This is a place where the barista knows your name and remembers your favorite sandwich.  They are thrilled to be partnering with Counter Culture Coffee and honored to be the first café in New York to unveil the ModBar.

Blue Bottle Coffee
1 Rockefeller Plaza Concourse Level, Suite D at Rockefeller Center
6th Avenue near W. 49th St
Monday - Friday : 7am - 7pm
Saturday & Sunday : 9am - 7pm

This California-born company opened their second New York shop on the concourse level of Rockefeller Center. As the largest private construction project of the twentieth century, Rockefeller Center is comprised of eight million square feet of office space. They occupy a cringingly modest .0000875 percent of the total complex.  Nestled around the corner from the famed ice skating rink and down the steps from 1 Rockefeller Plaza, their coffee bar is a sleek and efficient respite from the clamor of Midtown.  They serve espresso, blends, and single origin coffees along with two styles of iced coffee. They keep the community of tourists and high-rise inhabitants happy with parfaits and pastries baked at their Brooklyn kitchen.  The Rockefeller Center café can be a little tricky to find.

Inquire with the Concierge Desk for more information.

Neue Galerie New York is a museum devoted to early twentieth-century German and Austrian art and design, displayed on two exhibition floors.

The Tony Awards are almost upon us … and what a theater season it has been! So many new shows flooded the boards this season, we could barely keep up. The reigning champion is still the awesome hip-hop hit HAMILTON, which took New York by storm last year with equally awesome ticket prices.

To help you choose between all the new offerings, I’ve also checked out this season’s most exciting new musicals for you. Stop by the concierge desk and let’s talk Broadway!

HAMILTON - writer Lin-Manuel Miranda workshopped his hip-hop Opera in DC – in front of the President – before landing at the famed Public Theater downtown. A PBS documentary about the making of this historic musical recently aired. It makes a great companion to the stage play illuminates the process Miranda undertook in bringing this new American classic to life. Though the cast has turned over – Lin-Manuel Miranda has moved on to other projects - the new cast has attracted much attention recently.  Politicians of all stripes have come to the theater, reigniting the excitement around the already politically charged musical.  One thing is for sure: Hamilton will continue to impress with its fresh take on America’s early days … but be prepared to spend a pretty penny for this history lesson.

NATASHA, PIERRE AND THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 – This “Great Comet” followed a similar trajectory to the smash mega-hit Hamilton before landing on Broadway.  Happily, Great Comet also arrived on Broadway with its downtown street cred still intact.

Natasha … and the Great Comet is a playful and sexy adaptation of a chapter in Tolstoy’s War & Peace. The Imperial Theater, reimagined as a Russian salon, successfully immerses you in the world of the play from the moment you enter. The performances of the energetic and quirky cast feel oddly current … no small feat in a show about Russian aristocracy set in the early 1800’s! Powerhouse vocalist Josh Groban also shows impressive acting chops in a Tony-nominated performance. In fact, Natasha leads the crowded pack for 2017 Tony Award nominations, with 11 total nominations (For the record, Hamilton garnered a record-breaking 16 nominations in 2016).

If you don’t want to spend $1000 to see Hamilton, consider his Russian counterpart Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.

COME FROM AWAY – This season’s surprise hit, Come From Away, confronts the terrible disaster of 9/11 from an unusual vantage point: the little-known island airport town of Gander, Newfoundland.  This true story of these small town residents will win over even the most hardened New Yorkers; as the Newfoundlanders made room for 7,000 plane passengers rerouted after the attacks. A supremely talented ensemble expertly portrays a vast array of plane passengers from around the world and the locals that welcomed them. The tuneful score and smart lyrics by Canadian couple Irene Sankoff and David Hein earned them several Tony nods. The intertwining tales are lovingly reconstructed, weaving a touching tapestry of compassion and human connection in the face of horror. Indeed, under the able direction of Christopher Ashley, this show will restore your faith in musicals … AND humanity.

MISS SAIGON - As a musical theater fanatic growing up, I loved singing along to the tuneful Original Cast recording of Miss Saigon. Unfortunately, the original touring production I saw 25 years ago felt somehow clunky and disconnected from the terrible reality of the Vietnam war it attempted to portray.

This new revival is more gritty, more grounded … and feels all the more tragic. (But don’t worry: they kept the signature helicopter of the original production!)

Eva Noblezada received a well-deserved Tony nomination for her performance as Kim. The love she has for her young son, born out of an ill-fated romance with an American soldier (Alistair Brammer as Chris), is palpable. Jon Jon Briones also stands out as the savvy Engineer, somehow managing to evoke laughter in his desperate quest to win passage to the United States (most notably in the comical indictment of the “American Dream”). In the end, however, it is the little boy Tam who is given the last bow. Watching the two-year old actor run center stage provides a brief moment of levity and hope at the end of this tragic tale of two lovers – and a world - torn asunder by war.


Meet Dana – Dana moved to New York City in 2000 to pursue a career as a professional actor. The (very occasional) breaks in his acting career afforded Dana opportunities to fall in love with all of New York … through work in New York’s vibrant restaurant, nightlife, fitness and hotel scenes. Dana has worked in midtown Manhattan hotels for over seven years now, helping guests make the most of their trip to the Big Apple. Dana strives to see all that he can on Broadway and is proud to give guests the whole truth – and nothing but the truth - about the New York theater scene.
