A springtime New York rooftop engagement party? Yes please!
After my fiance Carey and I got engaged, his mother Lois kindly offered to host an engagement party for us in the city. When she said we could choose the venue, we immediately both thought of the Jimmy at the James Hotel because it is where we had one of our first dates. The Jimmy is one of our favorite rooftop lounges in all of the city! The views and the overall vibe are incredible.
The apartment I lived in for years was directly across the street from The James Hotel. Lucky me, I got to spend many nights sipping on amazing craft cocktails made by Johnny Swet, the best mixologist around. Not only that, I also spent many afternoons watching the sunset in the rooftop pool after a fun afternoon of music and rose at the Jimmy. Our New York rooftop engagement party couldn’t have been more perfect. We lucked out with perfect weather and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with our closest friends and family.
One of my favorite things about the Jimmy is the size of the venue and the fact that it is indoor/outdoor. I love that we can go inside if it gets chilly or crowded outside and still have the same magnificent views. I recommend the Jimmy for an engagement party or birthday party, but it is also the perfect place to grab a drinks with a friend or two.
Thank you to all of our friends and family for making the engagement party so special!
