The Amazing Indoor Pool Bar

If you’re in search of a venue a bit dissimilar to the customary New York City hotel scene, we’ve got the spot for you. The Grace Hotel, located in Times Square, has done a reputable job at staying under the radar. The feature that separates this venue from other NYC hotels and has us boasting is its 22-foot heated indoor pool with a swim-up bar.

This isn’t a conventional indoor pool for families with kids, however, it’s bordered by stadium seating accompanied by tables, which offer the option for bottle service. Where there’s a pool, there are bathing suits. If you’re not interested in getting wet, you can always sit and watch. However, if you’re willing to try something new and get a little wet while at a bar we can guarantee you’ll be surrounded by hot men and women.

In case you forget your bathing suit, the venue sells disposable suits outside of the pool entrance. However, we did see women get in the pool in their under garments. To go along with the nightlife vibe, there is a projection screen above the swim-up bar which coincides with the live DJ the hotel provides five nights a week.

At the swim-up bar, pool inhabitants can see through the bar to the opposite side of the inside bar. However, seeing as though the bar goes through, the bartenders must attend to the inside guests as well as the pool guests.

This presents our only complaint. The bartenders fall short of service when it comes to the swim-up bar. You’ll find three to four people at a time waiting behind the swim-up bar to have their order taken.

Halfway throughout the night the venue supplies the pool with numerous blow up balls. Just when you thought things were getting hot and heavy, venture to the third floor of the indoor pool-room and you’ll find showers, a sauna and a steam room. It seems as though this venue thought of it all.

The Grace Hotel is in a great location. It has a feature that no other hotel in NYC offers, and we recommend this venue to anyone who is up for a wet and wild experience not easily found in NYC.
