This New Beachfront-Inspired Paradise Is Serving Vacay Vibes All Summer Long In Lower Manhattan

Experience a tropical oasis at this season’s new go-to spot, The Bungalow!

Brookfield Place has converted their waterfront Upper Plaza into a beachfront retreat right in NYC. Inspired by “a summer day in Montauk,” The Bungalow is the perfect escape that doesn’t require you to leave the city.

Completely free and open to the public, The Bungalow is reintroducing the social scene into Lower Manhattan with a waterfront space that offers incredible views of the Hudson River, while featuring bi-weekly retail, lifestyle, and culinary programming throughout the summer on Wednesdays and Fridays.

From happy hour promotions to themed music nights and flower bouquet-making classes, the events are sure to entertain all season long. The Bungalow will even be partnering with various local businesses like Cherry Bombe, florist Doan Ly, La Newyorkina, and Rapha to support the community while hosting such programs. See here to view their entire program list.

Sip on refreshing drinks from surrounding restaurants at Brookfield Place like the Tartinery Shack with their specialty “Bungalow” cocktail or bite into some delicious food options ranging from Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar to Umami Burger.

“We created The Bungalow to serve as a retreat for those seeking a public space in the city to relax and enjoy being around one another after so much time apart,” said Sara Fay, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Brookfield Properties.

“The Bungalow celebrates life in the city and creates a welcoming and fun experience for office workers returning to Lower Manhattan, tourists exploring the waterfront and everyday New Yorkers seeking out a new adventure,” said Fay.

The space is open from 11am – 9pm daily until September 26th.
