Sky Room’s Guide to New York City Slang While Staying at NYC’s Times Square

By | Blog, Videos | No Comments

Fuggedaboutit!

Getting around New York City is already tough enough with our undecipherable subway maps and unbearable foot traffic. Because of that we decided to put together a quick list of terms that should help you get around from the Times Square area to just about anywhere in the outer boroughs!

It’s no secret that New Yorkers have their own lingo. From classic gangster films to Hip Hop catchphrases, NYC is the home of the original goingviral when it comes to slang words/terms. 

Here’s a list of terms and items we think will help out on your amazing New York City vacation! Enjoy the sights, control the shopping and come see us for pre-theater or after theater drinks! 

OUTER BOROUGHS:

Any borough of NYC that is not Manhattan, namely Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island. Mainly used by Manhattan elitists who do not consider the four other boroughs part of NYC property- but it is.

FORTY DEUCE

The original slang term for 42nd Street and it should be easy enough to figure out why, so when you’re away in one of the Outer Boroughs and want to get back to the Times Square area, briefly ask any rushing New Yorker: “Which way to Forty-Deuce?” 

By the way, we’re (Sky Room) in the area too, directly towards The Hudson! So if you’re feeling like a real New Yorker, ask any traffic cop to point you towards it!

THE HUDSON

The Hudson River. A 315-mile (507 km) river that flows from north to south primarily through eastern New York in the United States. The river originates in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York, flows southward through the Hudson Valley to the Upper New York Bay between New York City and Jersey City. It eventually drains into the Atlantic Ocean at New York Harbor. The river serves as a political boundary between the states of New Jersey and New York at its southern end. [2]

“You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.” -Anthony Bourdain

After schlepping your way through all the sites and sounds of our magical town, be sure to refuel for the fast-paced nightlife scene NYC has to offer. Here are a few brief terms that will help you grab a bite on your way back to your hotel for a wardrobe change!

Pie

A pie is the short name for an entire Pizza Pie here in NYC. 

Dollar Slice

When you don’t have the appetite or crew for an entire pie, A Dollar Slice is what you want. That’s simply a slice from the pizza pie that will only cost you $1.00! Lucky for you and I these pizza places are plentiful in this neighborhood! 

Halal aka “Street Meat”

New York halal usually consists of some combination of rice, greens, and halal meat either in a shallow foil dish or in a sandwich, usually with a red and white sauce to top it all off. This is served from street cart food vendors, to-go, and take less than ten minutes to hand over. The longer the line for one of these Hala trucks/carts, the better it’s supposed to taste. 

Hero

While our local Firefighters and Police Officers are heroes to the community, the term “Hero,” also refers to HUGE sandwiches served at local Bodegas! 

According to Bon Appetit, the name hero probably came about when Clementine Paddleworth coined it in a food column for the New York Herlad Tribune in 1936.

What’d Paddleworth write? That the sandwich was so large, “you had to be a hero to eat it.” Yes, Paddleworth, we are all heroes for eating heroes indeed. [3]

Bodega

The word comes from the Spanish la bodega which means grocery store. According to Time, the term used to be primarily used to refer to the bodegas found in Spanish speaking neighborhoods in NYC.

Of course, the term is used with frequency in Spanish-speaking populations to describe grocery stores, but in NYC they describe something else entirely. They’re a place where you can buy a quart of milk for $1.50, a sandwich, beer, and toothpaste, all in the same place.

More than that, they’re a place for New Yorkers to frequent and feel a sense of community. [4]

#YouMustBeHigherThanSkyRoom

This is a fairly new addition to the Only-in-NYC list, but we’ve heard it and we love it!

While you’re wandering around Times Square, come up to Sky Room and pay us a visit. Occupying the 33rd and 34th floor of the Fairfield Inn & Suites Times Square by Marriott and the Four Points Times Square by Sheraton, the bi-level ultra lounge transports guests to a high energy oasis atop 40th Street and offers five distinct spaces: the North Terrace with its retractable roof,  the South Terrace with its private cabanas, the Times Square Lounge, the Cube Balcony, and the Candlelight Lounge.

Get Outta Here!

This is exactly what it sounds like, but can be directed in a playful way, as well. New Yorkers also use it instead of the word(s)/term(s): unbelievableno way, no effing way, never! You catch the drift, right? 

You might also hear this at the club if you’ve overstayed your welcome, so drink responsibly and we hope to see you soon! 

P.S. – If you’re thinking of visiting Times Square or NYC for the New Year’s Eve Celebrations, give our NYE Party a look and join us! Ticket information can be found here!

How Bottle Service Works at Clubs & Rooftops in NYC

By | Blog | No Comments

Bottle Service Sky Room

What Is Bottle Service At A Club?
An acquaintance tells you about his or her experience at a club, gushing about how great the night was and about how much they enjoyed the bottle service they received. But just what is bottle service, anyway?”

Bottle service is becoming more and more popular at clubs across the United States, specifically in major cities like New York, Las Vegas and Miami. Many people just aren’t sure what it means to get bottle service at a club. That’s why we put this quick guide together to answer the question: “What is bottle service at a club?

About Bottle Service
Bottle service is a VIP experience offered at nightclubs and day parties. With bottle service, individuals make reservations for reserved tables that are catered to by servers. Individuals who make reservations, and their guests, are able to use the table or area for the duration of the party. The group is served drinks from bottles that are purchased by the group. All alcohol is purchased by the bottle rather than by the glass, which is how bottle service got its name.

How Bottle Service Works
When booking bottle service at a club, you’ll be asked how many guests you wish guaranteed admittance to the club along with yourself. This amount will affect the price of your agreed to spend. Upon arrival, you’ll be directed to your table and a server will come to take your order.

You can purchase as many different bottles of alcohol as you wish from a list that will be provided to you, as long as you reach the minimum amount you agreed to spend during booking. The server will bring the bottles ordered, as well as a standard assortment of mixers. (Normally, clubs will supply tonic, seltzer, orange juice and cranberry juice.) Plus, you’ll get garnishes like lemons, limes and olives. Mixers can be refilled an unlimited number of times, and the server can get other mixers that you request, such a pineapple juice. 

Why Choose Bottle Service?
One of the biggest advantages is the expedited entry to the club, which can be very desirable at hot spots with difficult doors. A reserved table gives you and your party a place to regroup, chat and chill between dancing. Bottle Service also gets you ahead of the line, so there is no waiting time to get the party going! 

Cost of Bottle Service
When comparing the cost of a bottle to the cost of an individual cocktail, Bottle Service makes sense. For example, a bottle of Absolut that costs $300 for bottle service up here at Sky Room can provide roughly 18 vodka & club soda drinks, making the cost per drink around $20. With cocktail prices at clubs in NYC often ranging from $15 to $20+, you wouldn’t be spending much more for the bottle service than what your group would pay to order 18 vodka club sodas. 

The private section, no entry fee, expedited service, not having to fight your way to get to the bar to get a drink makes sense with the comfort.

Getting Bottle Service At A Club
Every club has its own policies regarding bottle service, but nearly all of them require advanced booking.
The hottest clubs are often booked well in advance, so it can be difficult to secure a table at many establishments unless you know someone.

For bottle service at any club, we recommend you check out their website, and check out bottle prices and packages.
Otherwise, contact the club by phone to reserve a table.

Keep in mind that most clubs will have a minimum bottle purchase requirement dependent on the number of guests you wish to host at that table.

How To Spend An Instagram Worthy Time in NYC

Instagrammable Autumn is here and she wasted no time!

The leaves were just green days ago, now piling up on sidewalks all over the city in tones of pale yellows and paper-bag-browns. Sky Room has put together a quick list of Instagrammable places to see when spending just a few days in NYC, this Fall.

Here are our ways on: “How To Spend The Most Instagrammable Fall Weekend in NYC.

Central Park Foliage – Instagram Meter:  📸📸📸📸📸
Cost: FREE

From vibrant reds, oranges and yellows in The North Woods to deep bronzes from the Kwanzan Cherry Trees on the west side’s Reservoir, there is no better place to spend a day taking photos than Central Park.

With more colors than the rainbow, and the fact that it is free, it’s an absolute MUST during your stay, this Autumn. Check out their awesome map of all the foliage happening in Central Park, here.


Empire State Building 
– Instagram Meter:  📸📸📸📸
Cost: $37-$175

Downtown Manhattan is cool and all, but climbing to the top of most skyscrapers there won’t give you the best views and feel for how grand NYC is. Not only will you miss seeing a bustling midtown below in full swing, but you’ll never really understand the magic of having Times Square right under your feet.

And, if unobstructed Eastern and Western views are not reason enough to visit the most iconic building in history, then maybe its breathtaking Sunrise is. 

Fun Fact: The Empire State Building is the first building in human history to exceed 100 floors.

 

And What About Some Instagram Pop Ups, You Ask?


Candytopia New York

Above all, you can grab drinks and toast to the naturally instagrammable backgrounds of Manhattan, while here. The only art exhibits here are the views that you’ll want to have those cameras in-hand and ready for. And why not listen to a little music, enjoy some scrumptious bites and dance the night away under the stars?
