The Out NYC : New York's First Gay Hotel to Open on 42nd

For almost a month now, New York gay couples and proponents of gay rights have been rejoicing the bill passed in the Senate that allows same sex marriage in the state. Now there’s something else to celebrate: Parkview Developers announced today the creation of New York’s first officially gay hotel: THE OUT NYC - set to open this fall.

Here are the facts at a glimpse:

· Located on 42nd Street between 10th and 11th Avenues

· 105-room boutique hotel

· 11,000 square foot nightclub by John Blair, Beto Sutter, and FV Events

· 24/7 café and restaurant called KITCHEN

· First phase of the project is set for completion in the fall of 2011

THE OUT NYC will host various types of function space to accommodate everything from intimate private dinners to large events and weddings. The building will be centered on three courtyards and a 5,000 square foot wellness center. And not need to feel left out. This is a "straightfriendly" hotel. I thought that's just really cool.
