Pivoting Back to Travel, The Destination Weddings & Honeymoons Edition

2020 put the nuptial plans of thousands upon thousands of couples on hold, but with the promise of widespread vaccine distribution in the near future, it’s time to get back to planning and ensure your clients live out the destination weddings & honeymoons of their dreams. Hear from top suppliers and destinations on wedding venue & ceremony options, romantic destinations & resorts and more when you watch the event on-demand.

There’s a new New Yorker in town. Viceroy has moved into a VIP spot on West 57th Street alongside some swanky neighbors (think Carnegie Hall and the anticipated Park Hyatt).

The hotel climbs 29 stories, with views from floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Central Park. Luxe amenities include Beats by Dr. Dre Beatbox Portable audio systems, Sferra linens and illy coffee machines. Kingside, a street-level bar and restaurant, is the brainchild of Gerber Group and Chef Marc Murphy. It serves new American cuisine with handcrafted cocktails, craft beers and small-batch spirits. Gerber Group in December opens The Roof, a lounge and outdoor patio space serving cocktails and appetizers. Luxury travel advisors can contact Director of Sales and Marketing Michael Bridges (michael.brid[email protected]) with questions.

Meanwhile, TAO, which has rocked Manhattan’s trendy uptown restaurant scene for almost a decade, is taking its stiletto-heeled crowd further south. TAO Downtown will span an entire city block below the Maritime Hotel. The menu, drummed up by Chef/Partner Ralph Scamardella and his team, draws inspiration from the group’s background. (Executive Chef Yoshi Kojima hails from Morimoto, Oahu, and Jai by Wolfgang Puck, and Executive Chinese Chef Ooi Soon Lok comes from Jin Xuan in the Ritz-Carlton, Shanghai and Hakkasan, Miami.)
