What to Do This Father’s Day in NYC

With endless activities in New York, it can be hard to begin planning a special event like Father’s Day. This year, The Palace is offering an over-the-top special for dads. The $25,000 package features experiences selected with fathers in mind, including:

  • Accommodations in the 5,000-square-foot Towers Champagne Suite
  • Curated whiskey tasting at Rarities with Justin Lorenz, the hotel’s beverage director
  • Selection of spa treatments, from deep-tissue massages to an athletic performance massage and a refreshing gentleman’s facial
  • Steak dinner for two with a bottle of Dom Perignon

Looking for a more low-key yet classic New York experience? The Palace recommends taking dad to the following New York City attractions:

Have an Old-School New York Breakfast at Ess-a-Bagel

A quick seven-minute walk from The Palace, Ess-a-Bagel has been a New York institution since the 1970s. Head here for a classic NYC café experience and some of the best bagels in the city, with very large toppings selections.

Find the Perfect Gift in Grand Central Terminal

One of New York City’s finest landmarks, Grand Central Terminal is an architectural feat and a one-stop-shop for luxury shopping in NYC. Swing by The Art of Shaving, which offers hand-crafted razors and shaving accessories for men, or Swatch, the Swiss watchmaker founded in 1983 by Nicholas Hayek.

Sample Beers and Oysters in a New York City Landmark

After finding the perfect gift, head downstairs to the Grand Central Oyster Bar. The venerated eatery has been serving raw oysters in a vaulted dining room blanked in Gustavino tile since the terminal opened in 1913. Enjoy oyster beers like Montauk Red Ale, or the Oyster Bar-Tini with vodka or gin.

See the Frank Lloyd Wright Exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art

One of the most prolific and renowned architects of the last century, Frank Lloyd Wright was a radical designer whose works are known around the world. To celebrate the architect’s 150th birthday, the Museum of Modern Art has assembled 450 works made from the 1890s through the 1950s.

Enjoy a Steak Dinner at Smith & Wollensky

The quintessential New York steakhouse was named when founder Alan Stillman randomly selected the two names from a NYC telephone book in the 1970s. The menu is anything but random, featuring a raw bar, a selection of filet mignon, and live Maine lobsters.
