There are certain long-running cultural attractions here in NYC that you can ‘sit on’ a bit before making a definitive plan to check it out in person, but the annual Orchid Show at the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is not one of those the things; this year’s exhibit ends May 1st, which means you have less than one week to get there.

What could be more intoxicating to the senses than sipping exotic cocktails in a bar filled with fragrant, exotic flowers? Discover this multi-sensory experience for yourself each Saturday and Sunday through November, 2017 at NYLO New York City’s hotel lobby (including the bar, library, and piano lounge) which will be in full bloom as the space is transformed into a weekend flower market. Each weekend, a kaleidoscope of blooms supplied by Brooklyn’s very own CALA Floral Studio will take over the entire first floor of the hotel bringing in fragrant scents, and beautiful colors.
CALA Floral Studio will be presenting a myriad of arrangements from bouquets to buds, all available to take home or gift. In addition, classes teaching the making of floral headpieces will be offered and a floral cocktail menu will blossom. The hotel’s LOCLbar will be serving specialty floral cocktails every day of the week dreamed up by head bartender and beverage director, Earlecia Gibb.
Amongst a floral centered bar on weekdays and an overflowing flower market on the weekends, patrons can sip an Ultra Violet, a Singani cocktail with a violet ice sphere and orchids,
Also on the menu is the Rose & Ash, featuring Lapsang Souchong infused Absolut Elyx, rose cordial and activated charcoal.
For those who want to experience what spring tastes like, the Secret Garden is made of Bombay East gin, cucumber syrup, lavender bitters, Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic and floral buds frozen in ice-cubes. It tastes as beautiful as it looks!
