Thanksgiving Parade Viewing at Columbus Circle

Rates from:  $1,356.00  per person double occupancy for 3 nights

You can watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade without the crowds and without the weather - at this once-in-a-lifetime luxurious private indoor venue overlooking the world-famous parade!

Enjoy a breakfast buffet in a private dining area on the 7th floor of the Museum of Arts & Design, hosted by the modern classic Columbus Circle restaurant Robert. The event begins at 8:00am and includes a premium open bar - then watch as the parade comes straight at you down Central Park West and around Columbus Circle. The windows provide a view of this legendary parade, but you're also welcome to go outside and view it from the sidewalk*. This unique indoor-outdoor experience will certainly be the highlight of your holiday!

Since this exquisite view scans directly up Central Park West, you'll be able to watch the entire parade come directly at you before it makes it's way around Columbus Circle, right below! Watch through the windows from the 7th floor, or take the elevators down to street level to hear the bands, see the huge balloons or just take in the most famous parade in the world. You'll have complete access to the food and drink during the parade - and if you'd like, you can watch it on the large screen TV in our private dining area.

*--Sidewalk access controlled by the NYPD.

  • Accommodations at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel or the Marriott Marquis

Important Information on Window and Parade Views: NYCVP cannot guarantee unobstructed views of the parade at any function; window views are "first-come, first-served". In order to provide maximum viewing space there is no table seating at the windows. Note that the windows in this venue are very slightly obstructed due to moderate striping. It is the intention of NYCVP to provide comfort and convenience during this special event, including food, private restroom facilities, warmth and indoor protection from the weather. Since streets are closed to traffic and pedestrian crossing, NYCVP will provide instructions for arriving in a timely manner at each event.

This is an inside event. If you do choose to go outside you may be among the many thousands who gather to watch the parade. In the past, the NYPD has allowed guests of the building's parties to view the parade from the sidewalk in front of the Museum of Arts & Design. However there is no guarantee that the sidewalk space will be available solely for the building's guests.

NYCVP considers this a family event. Therefore NYCVP, including its employees and agents, reserves the right to deny access to and/or remove with no refund individuals whom NYCVP deems unruly or disruptive.
