On April 26, 2013, Morgans Hotel Group unveiled Tequila Park, a new taqueria (taco shack) and tequila bar located in the Private Park of New York’s Hudson. The Hudson will also be opening two other outdoor facilities in May: Hudson Common’s Patio and Sky Terrace. All three outdoor destinations are located at 356 West 58th Street at Hudson New York.
Tequila Park serves over 40 varieties of tequila as well as a dozen mezcals. The cocktail menu features “common” and “uncommon” types of fresh fruit margaritas made by mixologist Julio Torres. Morgans Hotel Group's Executive Chef Steve Peterson fused traditional Mexican street food with non-traditional flavors to create Tequila Park’s menu of tacos, and antojitos (Mexican street-vendor food). All menu items are served with a trio of Tequila Park’s homemade salsas: Verde, Chipotle, and Habanero Cherry Salsa. Food is available Tuesday through Friday from 4pm to 11pm, Saturday 2pm to 9pm; Drinks are available Monday through Friday from 4pm to 12am, Saturday 2pm to 12am and Sunday 4pm to 12am.
The design of Tequila Park respects the natural beauty of Hudson’s Private Park while introducing Mexican elements such as Aztec inspired printed pillows and throws. Tequila Park also has a 20-foot outdoor screen that plays black and white movies, and an acoustic guitarist who performs on select evenings.
Tequila Park connects directly to Hudson Common’s new outdoor patio, opening mid-May. The new outdoor patio features oversized planters, picnic and foosball tables and strings of flashbulbs strung overhead.
Also opening this spring at Hudson is Sky Terrace on the hotel’s 15th floor. Sky Terrace offers ten types of sangria and unobstructed views of the Hudson River all the way to the Statue of Liberty. This season, the venue will be open to hotel guests and locals alike from 3:00pm to 10:30pm daily.
