New 'Fireside' Escape Opens Inside Boutique Hotel in Manhattan, NY

Cozy Fire Provides Warm Reprieve and Welcoming Spirits to Midtown Guests

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 10, 2012) - Adding the warmth of a fireside retreat to the bustle of city streets, a premier boutique hotel in Manhattan, NY has debuted its exciting new Fireside Lounge, just in time to whisk away the stresses of a long day.

A new hidden gem among Midtown Manhattan bars, the intimate Fireside Lounge located inside the Renaissance New York Hotel 57 is the latest and greatest stop for an after-work glass of fine wine, cold draft beer or hand-crafted cocktail. Featuring a stunning namesake hearth nestled behind a display of artistically undulating glass, the décor of this stylish establishment features warm wood tones and plush seating for an inviting and vibrant "place to be." Making its home inside one of the hip hotels in New York City, this lounge is an ideal choice for meeting up with friends before a night on the town or enjoying the cozy warmth of the fire as a welcoming last top for winding down the evening.

The sleek look of the lounge's intriguing glass fireplace also sets the stage for uniquely comfortable receptions and social events. Backed by the culinary expertise and fine hospitality of the Renaissance's 4-star hotel in New York, the bar is available for small gatherings of up to 40 persons. The lounge's upstairs location quickly lifts guests off the streets and into a reprieve that in addition to warm tones and a cozy fire, offers a tantalizing menu of small bites and shareable plates filled with the likes of delicious beef sliders, chicken empanadas, fried calamari, hummus and more. Seasonal salads have also found their way onto the menu of this Midtown treasure. Adding excitement to its drink menu, the lounge's new cocktail program features seasonally fit beverages such as the Poinsettia or Cranberry Spice for the holidays along with its own Fireside Martini and other hand-crafted favorites.
