Rarities Lounge NYCThe Rarest of treats

The pioneering spirit of Henry Villard is alive and well at Rarities on Madison Avenue. An invitation-only oasis for true connoisseurs, Rarities is an intimate, 25-seat Midtown Manhattan lounge tucked away on the mezzanine level of Lotte New York Palace.

Open to the public by prior reservation, Rarities conjures the entertaining style of Villard in the late 19th century. As a financier, ambassador, railroad magnate, and owner of The New York Evening Post, he had a vast network of contemporaries who regularly visited his palatial Madison Avenue home and were welcomed with warm hospitality and good conversation.

Today, Rarities celebrates his legacy. Here, industry leaders and guests entertain associates and friends in private, join curated experiences with winemakers and master distillers, and enjoy exceptional Champagnes, pre-prohibition bottled spirits, modern classics, and a connoisseur’s wine cellar.

Bespoke memberships to Rarities are also available. Membership includes access to a private collection of rare wines, champagnes and spirits along with credits towards stays at The Towers, which can be redeemed throughout the year. To inquire about membership and for pricing, please contact Justin Lorenz and jlorenz@lottenypalace.com.
