Have Your Best Summer Yet in NYC

Aliz Hotel Times Square, located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, is your base for the best New York City summer events. Our modern boutique hotel is within walking distance of many of the city’s most renowned museums, iconic concert venues, and thrilling sporting events, all offering an exciting summer programming lineup. At every turn of our prized neighborhood, you’ll find there’s an experience that is authentic and endlessly inspiring. Here’s a guide to the best NYC summer events, all within the orbit of Aliz Hotel.

 

CELEBRATE LOCAL CULTURE

New York City is one of the world’s most diverse cities, making it one of the best places to experience global culture in America. This summer, celebrate art, music, cuisine, and community at events across the city. In June, see works by innovative filmmakers at the Tribeca Festival and celebrate love at NYC Pride. For museum lovers, the annual Museum Mile Festival turns a section of Fifth Avenue into a pedestrian walkway and block party linking celebrated institutions like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the Museum of the City of New York.

 

WITNESS CAPTIVATING SPORTS

New York City is home to 11 professional sports franchises, the most of any city in the country. For a quintessential New York summer day, head to Yankee Stadium to watch the New York Yankees or Citi Field to see the New York Mets. For fans of tennis, the Big Apple will host the annual U.S. Open Tennis Championships, beginning in late August. Put on your best jersey, indulge in stadium food, and cheer on your favorite players. 

 

EXPLORE HUDSON YARDS

Hudson Yards is more than a retail destination — it’s home to an international dining scene, live performances, art installations, a sky deck, and event spaces. Here, the Shed commissions original works of art across different mediums. The Shed itself is an architectural marvel, with its versatile outer shell able to move back, forth, and upwards to suit the performance and exhibition needs of its artists. While you’re at Hudson Yards, reserve a spot at Reserve Padel, featuring courts for the city’s newest sport, a highly social and tennis-like game.

 

CATCH A CONCERT AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN 

The energy at a Madison Square Garden (MSG) show is unmatched as native New Yorkers and travelers from all over the world gather together at one of the most iconic venues in the country. Whether you’re into EDM or rock, or just want to cheer on the New York Knicks, there’s something for everyone here. This summer, MSG will host acts ranging from musical legends Billy Joel and Justin Timberlake to rising stars Noah Kahn and Tate McRae. Check out the concert schedule to find the perfect NYC summer event for you.

 

SPEND AN AFTERNOON AT THE MOMA

Located only a 25-minute walk from Aliz Hotel, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is one the largest and most celebrated modern art museums in the world. Its permanent collection includes works by art giants like Piet Mondrian, Andy Warhol, and Jackson Pollock and it continues to champion new voices in the art world. This summer, explore the intersections of video and performance through the works of multidisciplinary trailblazer Joan Jonas, examine art history at the exhibition “Before Technicolor: Early Color on Film”, and see how modern designers are imagining new ways to live and work in harmony with the natural world.

 

TREAT YOURSELF TO DINNER AND A SHOW

As you set out to explore New York’s inspiring corners, sip a pre-Broadway show cocktail at our retro-chic rooftop bar, Dear Irving on Hudson, or refuel after a day of festival celebrations at FARMTOBURGER, our street-level restaurant which specializes in crafting dishes from sustainable, locally sourced ingredients.

Likewise, if you’re in the mood for a classic outing on the town, Aliz Hotel’s proximity to the bright lights of Broadway simply can’t be beat. See your favorite classic shows like Cabaret or Chicago, or new classics Hamilton and Hadestown. You can also be part of performance art history and travel back to the roaring twenties in “The Great Gatsby,” a captivating new musical adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s magnum opus.
