Hard Rock Hotel New York to Debut in Spring 2022

The Hard Rock Hotel New York is nearing completion in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, and is accepting reservations for its official launch in April 2022. Steps from Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Broadway, Bryant Park and Fifth Avenue, the hotel aims to honor the legacy of "Music Row" as the brand’s new flagship property.

The newly constructed hotel will have 446 guestrooms and specialty suites with floor-to-ceiling windows. On the 34th-floor is the Rock Star Suite, a bi-level, glass-enclosed penthouse with expansive city views, original contemporary artwork, music memorabilia and one of the largest terraces in New York City.

Hard Rock Hotels enlisted the services of design firm Jeffrey Beers International to bring a music-infused vision to life, accented by legendary memorabilia honoring musicians from and inspired by New York City. Notable displays will include a classic leather motorcycle jacket owned and worn by Joey Ramone; a pair of silver patent leather boots worn by Lady Gaga; a record player with built-in microphone and cutting lathe for making direct-to-disc recordings from Les Paul; and handwritten lyrics for John Lennon’s 1972 ode to his adopted home, “New York City,” among other notable pieces.

Located between the Theater District and Radio City Music Hall, the hotel will offer a backstage pass to the city’s historic "Music Row." Paying homage to the mecca of recording studios and music stores that once lined 48th Street, the hotel will offer live music across all public spaces with a dynamic and engaging approach to entertainment programming.

Visitors will discover culinary concepts, including the upscale NYY Steak, in partnership with the New York Yankees. Mozambique wood-paneled walls will be complemented by autographs from famed players, while heritage-sourced steaks, local market seafood and approachable main dishes will be served on fine china inscribed with player numbers within the franchise insignia.

RT60, the rooftop bar, will serve cocktails, shareable bites and a chance to take in the city from above. Guests can enjoy performances by popular DJs and budding local talent. From day to night, the brand’s Sessions Restaurant & Bar, located on the main level and accessible by a grand staircase from the street, is a three-story atrium and open-air terrace offering live, unplugged musical performances.

The Venue on Music Row is a flexible entertainment space with capacity for up to 400 guests. It will play host to A-list performances, fashion shows, after-parties and gala dinners. Hard Rock Hotel New York will also feature the "Rock Om" program fusing the practice of yoga with the rhythm of a custom DJ-curated soundtrack for on-demand in-room sessions. Other experiences guests can expect include rooftop moonlight yoga sessions. Pretty cool!
