Gay Urban Resort to Open on 42nd Street in the Heart of Manhattan
Amidst growing advances in New York’s LGBT community, Parkview Developers announce plans to open New York City’s first gay hotel, THE OUT NYC. This gay urban resort is poised to become a travel and entertainment destination for gay New Yorkers and tourists alike. The complex, situated on 42nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues, will encompass a 105-room boutique hotel, the 11,000 square foot XL NIGHTCLUB, lounge & cabaret by John Blair, Beto Sutter, and FV Events, a late-night restaurant called Kitchen 510, three courtyards, a business/conference center, function space, and a wellness center.
The first phase of the project is set for completion with the opening of XL NIGHTCLUB, lounge & cabaret in January 2012. XL NIGHTCLUB, lounge & cabaret is the newest project by noted gay nightlife impresarios John Blair and Beto Sutter, and the wunderkind party promoters Brandon Voss and Tony Fornabaio of FV Events. Blair and Sutter, famous for the legendary Saturday night party at The Roxy, helped create this new venue from the ground up. Open seven nights a week, XL NIGHTCLUB, lounge & cabaret is the first nightly gay dance club to open in New York City in the last 15 years. The space will feature an LED wall, two dance floors, and a full stage.
Subsequent phases of the project include the boutique hotel slated to open in March of 2012, which features 105 rooms with an upscale, chic décor and a starting rate of approximately $250. Kitchen 510 will be operated by the team behind the already-successful Hell’s Kitchen favorite, Eatery Restaurant. It will offer the same style of upscale comfort food for which Eatery Restaurant is famous. THE OUT NYC will host various types of function space to accommodate everything from intimate private dinners to large events and weddings. The building will be centered on three courtyards and a 5,000 square foot wellness center, creating an oasis from the city just outside its doors.
“This is an idea whose time has come. What makes THE OUT NYC a gay hotel is the comfort level and tailored amenities for the community,” said Ian Reisner, Managing Partner, Parkview Developers. “THE OUT NYC will become a ‘can’t-miss’ for gay tourists as well as the epicenter of gay life for LGBT New Yorkers. With New York’s recent legislation, we look forward not only to hosting countless gay couples, but marrying them as well.”
