The Arlo Soho

I know I am writing this a bit late but truthfully, it is never to late to discover the Arlo Hotels of NYC. There are two hotels, one in Soho and one in Nomad and both are worth a visit. We first visited the Arlo Soho Hotel on a cold February night because we read about their winter tents but we stayed because of the cool lobby ambiance. Don’t get me wrong, the tents located in the back garden of the main level are very hip and fully furnished in camping vibe rocking chairs and wool throws. The tents are so hip that they were all occupied with the front zipper down for privacy ( which didn’t stop me from knocking on the canvas to sneak a peak inside).

There are two more tents located on the roof but sadly those did not have heaters and as I mentioned above it was a cold night. Even with the tents all taken we ended up staying at the Arlo for hours in a lounge on the second floor with some games we found in the lobby shelves.

Camp Arlo 

The public area includes a bar just beyond the entrance the garden with “camp Arlo” open all year, a lobby with many seating options and some games and books along the shelves and second floor lounge with a sort of office meeting chill vibe. Just to the left beyond the entrance is a posh 24 hr bodega that carries some packaged kosher snacks and drinks.

Although I visited in the winter this place is worth a visit any season. In fact, Camp Arlo Spring Fest starts April 21. If you need more convincing, in the warmer weather the rooftop bar would actually be a viable option and offer great views of downtown.

The Heights at Arlo NoMad

If however you want views of midtown (specifically the empire state building ) head to The Heights rooftop bar in Arlo NoMad. The rooftop has comfortable seating and is a great place to hang out, talk and grab a drink. There is even a glass bottom floor!! We loved the view and guessing why the Empire state building was all pink! The NoMad location also has some swanky urban indoor lounge areas including the Barlo, an inviting space on the 2nd floor featuring cozy seating and a full bar.
