New York City is celebrating one of its longest-running hotel properties in 2023. Kixby NYC is Midtown’s muted art deco dream, a stylish getaway that captures the dark attraction of NYC in a polished, sophisticated manner. The building recognizes its 120th birthday next year, marking a historic lifespan in the heart of Manhattan. Former sites included the Collingwood, a luxury hotel that resided at its 35th street home over 100 years ago, known for its golden-era charms and touches of mystery.
To bring the hotel into the modern era, the Kixby app is ready for download. Future and current guests can handle reservations, special requests and messages to the hotel from the ease of the app. Once you’ve arrived, check in with the virtual room card on the Kixby app.
This mix of old and new represents the effortless balance New York brings to its industries, by recognizing the prestige of architectural longevity with the opportunity that its residents offer. In other words, Kixby is ready to host.

Kick Back with Kixby NYC Dining and Drinking

Lot 15 is a welcome sight in the Kixby lobby. Surrounded by shining black detail work and ornate gold tapestries, the dimly-lit bar is an inviting escape any time of day. Custom cocktails complement the distinct curves and edges of the abstract art adorning the walls, the modernity juxtaposing the hotel and providing refreshing contrast to the city area proper.
The Lookup Rooftop affords a 12th story view just three months out of the year, pairing pristine views with a bar-next-door vibe. Bright pastel furnishings and comfy seating are available for guests only, elevating the casual setting with a touch of exclusivity.
Famous shakes are mixed at Black Tap, the NYC-inspired burger joint set in a bright, divey bar in the Herald Square district. This location features the first stand-alone shake mixing spot, where thirsty guests can watch their creations be brought to life before their eyes.
Enjoy an Equally Historic District
Kixby sits steps away from the culmination of New York’s iconic neighborhoods. The area is bustling, offering more than just shopping and dining to pass the time. A number of historic buildings housing international names in fashion and country consulates surround the area. The Empire State building and Times Square live mere blocks over, among the wealth of architectural marvels begging to be explored.
Herald Square is the closest in proximity. The blocks — which actually exist as two triangular segments — contain the largest Macy’s department store in the country, and is the site of the annual Macy’s Day Parade.
Around the corner sits Keens Steakhouse, a regal chophouse with a rich history of theater, presidency and “the largest collection of churchwarden pipes in the world” on display. For further fashion indulgence, the flagship location of Tiffany & Co. resides at the named Tiffany and Company Building. Simply strolling through the neighborhood yields more unique fixtures to enjoy across communities with household names.
