Parker’s at Thompson Central Park New York recently opened, transforming the hotel’s newly designed lobby atrium with live music, an elevated ambiance, crafted cocktails and contemporary American fare.


“We are thrilled to introduce Parker’s to New York City, and provide a glamorous space for New Yorkers as well as travelers to connect with the music, art and culture surrounding our landmark hotel,” said Matthew Slippoy, general manager, Thompson Central Park New York. “Since first opening last fall, we’ve been looking forward to unveiling the new lobby lounge and redesigned atrium space, creating even more opportunities for our neighbors and hotel guests to joyfully experience Thompson Central Park New York.”

In collaboration with Jazz Foundation of America, Parker’s hosts regular, live music performed by local artists.

The Come Fly with Me features bourbon, Oloroso Sherry and maple syrup. Shareable American dishes complement the drinks for dinner, with breakfast and lunch menus also available.


Other hotel eateries include Burger Joint, Indian Accent and in-room dining, including a partnership with Milk Bar.


Parker’s opens 6:30 a.m.–11:30 p.m., Sunday through Thursday, and 6:30 a.m.–1 a.m., Friday and Saturday.
