Upcoming at Hudson Yards
Hudson Yards is home to many vendors and retailers hosting awesome events and activities throughout the year. Book some time in a nap pod, focus on your wellness with a free fitness class, or connect with friends at your new favorite watering hole. You can relax, recharge, or reinvent yourself in any number of ways in NYC’s grandest retail space—just down the way from 555TEN’s luxury rentals.
When you’re out and about and in need of a quick bit of shuteye but don’t have time to head back home, fear not. 3DEN offers a private, quiet space that’s specifically designed for you to rest and sleep in comfort. The Casper nap pod (a twin bed outfitted with fresh sheets and secluded behind blackout curtains) provides a cozy spot for a quick nap at any time of day. If you don’t need to snooze, 3DEN also offers meditation pillows, comfy chairs, private showers, workspaces, and soundproof phone booths to accommodate the needs of those on the go. You can also purchase a number of extras from fine brands such as LOLI Beauty, Dirty Lemon, Seed, Goby, and Harry’s. If you’re like us, you’ll be looking for a hot cup of joe when your session is over, and we rejoiced when we found out that coffee comes with the package. Bonus! And at $6 for a 30-minute session, a visit to 3DEN is pure value.
Once you’re well-rested, get your blood flowing with a free fitness class at Athleta. Empowering women and encouraging them to take on a more active lifestyle has been central to the brand since its founding, and their free community fitness classes are part and parcel of that ethos. To give you an idea of what to expect, a recent yoga event featured FitPro Tess Jonas accompanied by DJ Julie Bobek. During the class, they took participants through a 60-minute yoga session—suitable for all skill levels—and followed it with mimosas overlooking a phenomenal view of the Vessel. More boot camps, running groups, and other wellness classes are currently being planned. Keep in the loop by signing up for Athleta event emails or by checking their calendar or the Hudson Yards calendar for more details and upcoming opportunities.
Work and health are important, but full balance also involves cutting loose and kicking back with friends on occasion. Hudson Yards has a variety of happy hours that are perfect for reconnecting over excellent food and smartly mixed cocktails. Two of our favorites can be found at Belcampo and Hudson Yards Grill. Happy Hour at Belcampo offers $5 drafts, $6 wine, and the Belcampo Cocktail of the Day for $7, along with a delectable Belcampo Burger special. Hudson Yards Grill showcases brasserie fare prepared by native New Yorker and chef Michael Lomonaco in his new “American concept” restaurant. $10 classic cocktails with new twists, like the Lavender Margarita, $5 drafts, and $6 wines are served alongside bar snacks of mixed nuts and wasabi peas. Just don’t fill up with those deliciously salty munchies right away. Burgers, a sushi bar, prime cuts of meat, and daily specials await. In fact, make time to linger past 7 pm and explore the menu further.
Dinner out is always a treat, but there’s one meal at home that we look forward to all year: Thanksgiving. And Citarella’s Taste of Thanksgiving makes certain that you’re prepared. On November 4th, join them for a master class in “how to create the ultimate Thanksgiving feast.” Citarella’s head butcher will be on hand to demonstrate turkey prep techniques, and the master pastry chef will be doing pie-baking demos. As you may expect, samples will abound. Enjoy perfect wine and cheese pairings during the event, taste some of their most popular side dishes, and come away with new ideas for your own spectacular Thanksgiving meal. Citarella is ready to help make your next holiday the most memorable yet.
