Having a winter birthday, especially a February one, means I'm almost guaranteed a blizzard the week of my birthday. This makes planning get togethers a little bit tricky, having to consider the weather and where you want to celebrate. Toss in New York Fashion Week and you've got the complications of trying to see if people are even available to celebrate with you. Luckily for me, I kept things cozy and low-key this year and was able to ring in my 26th year with a close group of girlfriends (and Marco) at the Après Ski Lounge at the St. Cloud Rooftop in The Knickerbocker Hotel.
Located in the heart of Manhattan, it was a perfect break from our hectic schedules. We cozied up in a space with a roaring fire, faux fur blankets draped all around, and a delicious raclette set up as we caught up with one another, sharing stories of dates, fashion week news, and Valentine plans. The lounge offers an amazing selection of drinks and bites with a terrace that offers an amazing view of Times Square. If you're looking for a way to celebrate during the winter, or even just to have a get together with friends with some winter lodge vibes, the Après Ski Lounge is the perfect place for you.
A special thank you to The Knickerbocker Hotel for hosting my birthday celebration.
