As everyone has to at some point in their lives, my sister just went through what she believed to be a traumatic milestone in her life— she turned thirty. Transitioning from your twenties to your thirties can be really scary, no doubt, but what my sister has begun to realize, and you will too, is that being 30 doesn’t mean you’re “over the hill”, being 30 marks the beginning of a fun-filled, real adult life and being 30 in New York City is what people dream of! So seize the day and enter into your thirtieth year of life with the thrill and excitement of all that New York City has to offer; here are five ways to celebrate turning thirty in NYC!

1. The Chester- Meatpacking District
Start your birthday with brunch at the Chester! This quaint restaurant, located in the Meatpacking District has a decadent menu perfect for celebrating your 30th birthday. Try their Brioche Trench Toast if you have a sweet tooth or the Eggs Benedict if you’re craving something savory. If you’re more the type who orders “lunch” at brunch, check out their Foie Gras Apple Burger or the Caprese sandwich; regardless, pair the delectables with a tasty cocktail like their Espresso Martini— Ketle one, Godiva Kahlua, and espresso— or The Cobblestone— tanqueray, mint cucumber, and rhubarb bitter— for an unforgettable 30th birthday brunch! This venue is one of the best birthday restaurants in nyc. It’s large enough to accommodate 300 guests so don’t hesitate to invite all of your friends to help you celebrate.

2. Hotel Chantelle- Lower East Side
If you’re a history loving partier then Hotel Chantelle is the ideal setting to kick off your thirtieth year of living! The name of the hotel comes from a World War II safe house and as soon as you step into it, you’ll feel like you’re in Paris in the 1940’s.They have it all from a rooftop restaurant and garden to an underground dance floor where you can party the night away. Hotel Chantelle offers a sophistication without being stuffy so it really is the perfect place to celebrate turning thirty. They have a plethora of delicious cocktails ( Sunny and Share with bourbon, fresh peaches, and mint, yum!) and I wish I could list them all because of how tasty they sound but you’ll just have to plan your birthday bash at Hotel Chantelle and find out for yourself what a hidden gem it is!
3. Open House
This lounge makes its guests truly feel at home. It’s tucked away behind a wooden façade so when you walk in on your thirtieth birthday you’ll be transported to a completely unexpected space. They have the perfect combination of modern and vintage which creates an elegant atmosphere giving it all the comfort of a hospitable house setting. They have an assortment of platters to choose from and the family- style food service is a nice addition to the homey feel of Open House.

4. The Monarch- Midtown
The Monarch is located on the rooftop of an 18 floor building, overlooking the Empire State Building and Midtown Manhattan. This is the place no one forgets especially if they’re also celebrating you turning 30! They have tons of comfortable seating, both indoor and out and the level of sophistication offered is unparalleled. If you’re feeling adventurous, try their tomato basil martini and mushroom flatbread. If you’re palate is more traditional they have an abundance of wines, whisky’s, and craft beers and pomme frites (aka french fries) and beef sliders that are to die for! Regardless of what you choose as your refreshments, you’ll have a spectacular thirtieth birthday celebrating at the Monarch.

5. Slate Lounge- Flatiron District

Mac and cheese spring rolls, open faced ruben wontons, crispy fish tacos, salad, pizza— what more could you ask for?

Sky Room
First up, the Sky Room. Imagine this: the sun is setting over the city and just and it’s getting ready for bed, laser lights begin dancing in an entrancing show through the fog of a smoke machine while a DJ spins a tune so perfect you can’t help but get up and dance until the sun reawakens. What seems to be a scene taken right from a movie becomes a real possibility at one of the most unique hip hop clubs in New York, the Sky Room! They have amazing views, mouthwatering cuisine, and heavenly cocktails plus with their five distinct spaces, partygoers can relax in the privacy of the South Terrace cabanas or enjoy the effervescent sunset in the North Terrace with its retractable roof. If you’re searching for a venue where you can harness your inner hip hop star at your event, look no further, the Sky Room is the place for you!

Hudson Terrace
Next we have the Hudson Terrace which was designed with the intention of attracting fun-loving, life-living, adventurers. It is truly a one of a kind place with Hudson River views, two enormous dance floors, and a great selection of dancing music, this bi-floor night club is sure to set your party apart from all the others. You’ll remember what an amazing time you had while experiencing their open air atmosphere due to the retractable roof (SO COOL!), sipping tasty cocktails and delectable dishes all night long! One of the best aspects of the Hudson Terrace is that it is large enough (or small enough) to accommodate any size of gathering you’re hoping to have. Hudson Terrace is amazing which is why it’s in our list.


hip hop night at taj

Third on our list is a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough really. Taj II is an incredibly balanced atmosphere that allows all the guests in attendance to de- stress and let loose! Because of the three New York city venues and their flexibility to host an array of events, Taj is a place for everyone. When you walk in the doors you’re immediately transported to Indian night life in the event space, lounge, and restaurant. They have a copper-topped bar and interesting, imported décor that adds to the ambiance and helps create an unforgettable experience. When you choose Taj for your event be sure to try their roasted beet salad, Chilean Sea Bass dish, or coconut and green curry vegetables paired with one of their tasty cocktails like The Elderflower— a decadent mix of vodka, elderflower cordial, lemon, and champagne— or the Sari Night— rum, tamarind, cranberry, lemon, and lime. Taj is the place to be if you’re looking for a classy, exotic venue to host your next event!

m1-5 hip hop night

Our fourth recommendation is perfect for everyone. This fun, casual bar truly has it all! Cozy lounge seating, curtained booths for intimate conversation, and a bar area with eight flat screen TVs perfect for viewing the big game. Not only that, they have an in house PA system, state of the art turntables, and a stage compatible for dancing until early morning hours! When you’re taking a break from all the dancing, enjoy some delectable dishes M1-5 has to offer! They have the expected bar food including delicious wings, beef sliders, and chicken tenders but if you’re feeling adventurous, consider ordering the samosas, an Indian pastry with potatoes and peas that is one of my personal favorite dishes of all time, or perhaps the Boullette— Moroccan spiced lamb meatballs, tomato coulis, saffron, and preserved lemon aioli on a baguette. M1-5 is hip, fun, and hands down one of the best places to throw a party!

hip hop at the attic rooftop

The Attic
Last but certainly not least is The Attic. Renowned designer, Marc Dizon, found inspiration from the Golden Era of Hollywood when creating the masterpiece space. It is a relaxed environment with a cozy lounge, plush seating at the bars, multiple levels and a DJ booth with spectacular systems making it an amazing spot to host an event. The color palette is one of soothing silvers and grey interspersed with warm woods that set the mood for an elegant evening soirée. Be sure to try the Maple Glazed Lamb Lollipops and the Uptown Penicillin cocktail— a tasty concoction Dewars Scotch, Glenlivet 12 Yr, Muddled Ginger House Honey/Mint Syrup, Fresh Lemon Juice. For a sophisticated night to remember, check out The Attic!
