Michelangelo Hotel Presents: Pre- and Post-Theater Dining in The Lounge
Dinner and a show in the Theater District NYC is so much more enjoyable without the drama of taxis, timing and tourist traps...save all that drama for the theater! When you’ve got theater tickets for a Broadway show, you’ll want to know where to grab the perfect pre-theater dinner or post-theater drinks.
Italian Hospitality is Our Passion
Buona sera! The Michelangelo Hotel’s classic red awning at 152 West 51st Street between 6th and 7th Avenues is a beacon to welcome you. Come in from bustling midtown streets for an atmosphere of refined elegance with a charming Italian accent. Among all the noteworthy venues near Broadway, you’ll recognize us by our magnificent Italian marble floors, sumptuous staircase and grand piano...yet, the warm Italian-style hospitality is what we’re most proud of.
Benvenuti! At The Lounge at The Michelangelo Hotel, you’re on the doorstep of New York City’s one-and-only theater district, so you can relax in our comfortable lobby Lounge without giving a second thought to traffic.
Mangia bene! Eat well at a pre-theater dinner and enjoy the best post-theater cocktails without investing hours. When you’re not looking for a four-course, prix-fixe gastronomic production before or after the show, we’ve got a delicious solution. Tasty light fare with an Italian twist includes favorites such as a crispy Caesar salad with chicken, shrimp or salmon; world-famous San Daniele prosciutto with ricotta flatbread; an All-American smoked turkey club sandwich or Angus beef burger on a brioche bun served with your choice of cheese and a side of handcut French fries or salad. Chef’s recipe for three cheese ravioli with sundried tomatoes and sautéed kale is as popular in New York City as it is in Naples, Italy.
Curating and Serving Wine
Prego! Let’s give a round of applause for Italian innovation. Tuscan engineers have partnered with Italian wine makers to patent Enomatic, the world’s first wine preservation and serving system for premium wines by the glass. Of course, we are among the first to install one of these beauties behind the bar at The Michelangelo Hotel NYC.
Our team has researched and curated wines from around the world and now brings you the best in both quality and taste. Choose a glass of our Corte Di Valle Chianti Classico and other delightful selections maintained in the cuvée wine modular dispenser system. Every glass will taste like the bottle has just been opened.
Internationally Inspired Handcrafted Cocktails
Saluti! We’re inspired by our own charming collection of two dozen Starhotels in the heart of Rome, Florence, Milan, Venice, Paris, London and more fabulous Italian destinations. We trust your imagination will be carried away, too.
Think of romance and Venetian gondolas when you order a Bellini of Harry’s Bar fame, an official contemporary classic for bartenders all over the world.
Be as debonair as James Bond in the 1953 “Casino Royale,” with a Vesper Martini in hand, because as 007 said, “Once you have tasted it, you won't drink anything else." Cheers.
Raise a toast to the place Mark Twain called the “Gilded Age” when you order a Manhattan, named for the great city of New York, New York -- so nice they named it twice -- way back in 1870.
