First gay hotel to open in New York in winter 2012

It is finally confirmed: the first gay hotel will open next winter in New York in the gay neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen! Located on 42nd Street between 10th and 11th avenues, this boutique hotel will offer 105 rooms (first price $ 250/night).

The hotel will be part of a bigger uban gay resort, the OUT NYC, in the heart of one of the most sought-after area in New York. The hotel, scheduled to open in winter 2012, will be completed with a 24/7 cafe and restaurant, KITCHEN, a 5,000 square feet wellness center, a conference center and a business center. After the approval of gay marriage in New York, the developers of this project hope to be able to accommodate honeymooners but also to organize gay wedding ceremonies!

Another gem of thios OUT NYC: a 11,000 square feet gay club, the nightly XL NIGHTCLUB, open every night of the week, a rarity in New York. The club, led by New York gay nightlife impressarios and party promoters, is expected to open this fall. In addition to a huge dance floor, the XL NIGHTCLUB also offer a lounge and a stage. This is the first inauguration of a nightly gay club in New York in 15 years.
