Global lifestyle brand Margaritaville Holdings has announced it is building a new Margaritaville Resort in New York City. Located in Times Square at 560 Seventh Avenue, the 234-room, 29-story property is expected to open in late 2020. Once complete, the $300 million project will have several Margaritaville food and beverage concepts, a rooftop LandShark Bar & Grill and pool, retail space, and more.
The Margaritaville Resort in New York City will bring the brand’ signature “casual-luxe” design elements, a rooftop pool, St. Somewhere Spa, and lounge areas overlooking the city’s famous skyline.
In partnership with International Meal Company, food and beverage venues include a Margaritaville Restaurant, LandShark Bar & Grill, 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar, Floridays Airstream Café, and an all-new concept, Chill Bar.
The resort will be developed by Sharif El-Gamal’s Soho Properties, in partnership with Chip and Andrew Weiss and MHP Real Estate Services.
