Tucked in the heart of Chelsea, the new Hotel Hayden feeds on the energy of three of New York City’s most enduring and iconic commercial neighborhoods. At the intersection of the Fashion District and the Flower District and the eternally trendy Meatpacking District, it’s a modern boutique gem just steps from world-famous local landmarks (including the Fashion Institute of Technology and Madison Square Garden) and New York City’s hottest new art galleries and restaurants. The new hotel welcomes guests with 122 stylish rooms and suites, crave-worthy Greek cuisine at Mykonos Blue, a Fitness Studio, Business Center, and a rooftop bar with NYC skyline views both old (vintage water towers) and new (the sparkling Freedom Tower).

Better to taste it than to read about!
What you drink is more important than how much. Essentia’s proprietary ionization process creates a clean, smooth-tasting 9.5 pH or higher ionized alkaline water that’s more effective at rehydrating.
We thank you for keeping the Parade hydrated! We need it!
OUR BREW IS GOOD FOR WHO?
We make our kombucha the traditional way, using only loose leaf tea and botanicals to make 100% raw kombucha with only naturally occurring live and active cultures, never adding juice or flavoring after fermentation. Traditional kombucha also contains alcohol, so we take the extra step of removing it so that all humans can enjoy.
Good for us. Good for you. Good for humans.

The brew of dynasties, Tsingtao secured an enduring place at the tables of emperor feasts. With a commitment to quality and a respect for tradition, Tsingtao has become the number one beer in China – and the number one Chinese beer in America.
