Father’s day is approaching fast, and if you’re celebrating the day in New York it’s probably a good idea to figure out the game plan ahead of time. Luckily, these Lower Manhattan hotel packages make organizing a Father’s Day adventure in NYC even easier with a wide range of 5-star hotel offers.
Once you book your deal, treat the Dad in your life to a fun-filled day in the city. Whether Dad likes BBQ, the driving range, Broadway or brunch, here are some great ideas to kick-off your celebration.
Chow Down on Baby Back Ribs
If Dad’s a fan of BBQ, look no further than Blue Smoke for your Father’s Day feast. Blue Smoke was the first to epitomize “New York barbecue” and with a Battery Park location just blocks from The Wagner you won’t have to travel far for Dad’s meat-loving meal. Be sure to try their baby back ribs with a side of cornbread madeleines.
See the Ins and Outs of a Microbrewery
Take the beer-loving Dad to the handsomely designed microbrewery at Circa Brewing Co in downtown Brooklyn. The trendy décor and impressive list of brews are sure to make Dad feel ahead of the curve. Taste their homemade brews alongside a full cocktail menu, and if you and the crew get hungry, just grab a slice at their attached wood-fired pizza restaurant.
Practice Your Swing at The Golf Club
Just because you’re celebrating Father’s Day in the big city doesn’t mean he has to sacrifice a day at the driving range. Dad will love the scenic super-range at The Golf Club at Chelsea Piers, overlooking the Hudson River pier. He can spend an afternoon enjoying the city’s only four-tiered outdoor driving range, including a 200-yard hitting fairway. And if you want to join him but need to practice your swing first, take advantage of their cutting-edge technological training at the golf academy.
Watch the Stars on Broadway
Not all Dads love barbeque and beer. If the Dad in your life has an artistic side, why not take him to the theater? There are plenty of shows to choose from this June, including a Hollywood star-studded rendition of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. Book your tickets in advance to see Annette Bening and Benjamin Walker in the Tony-nominated classic.
Brunch, Brunch, Brunch
What’s more celebratory than brunch? Treat Dad to a meal he’ll remember at one of the many lauded restaurants in downtown NYC, or at one of the restaurants with a special Father’s Day menu planned. One option is Jean-George’s Public Kitchen on Chrystie Street, which has a stunning outdoor terrace and a classic Father’s Day menu in the works including smoked-salmon potato latkes.
