The Moxy East Village and Paradise Club at The Edition Times Square

The Moxy, an “upper midscale” hotel targeting the Millennial-on-the-move, is opening its fourth New York location this September — in the East Village — with plans to open locations in Brooklyn and additional locations seen in the years to come. With all the hotels come options for party venues: rooftop bar Magic Hour at Times Square and The Fleur Room at Chelsea, run by TAO Group, and Recreation at Downtown. The Fleur Room recently gained some buzz from Republic Records’ VMA after party, attended by the likes of Taylor Swift and rumored couple Gigi Hadid and Tyler Cameron, and will be host to a party for Alana Hadid and Emily Perlstein of La Detresse during fashion week. Cathédrale, a restaurant, will open in the East Village mid-September.

It’s bringing tough competition for the Moxy’s hipper counterpart — that would be The Edition, Marriott’s luxury brand helmed by Ian Schrager — which opened a Times Square outpost this past spring and is still going strong as a party venue with its cabaret-style Paradise Club and rooftop views of neon signage.
