You heard…it’s gonna be a fair fight (for THE STAYCATIONERS’ hearts). In this East Side Story, the crew takes over Sixty LES for a full day of primping and playing dress-up before heading down to Tiki Tabu for their very own modern debutante ball in the form of an actually cool V-Day singles party. Single malt whiskies and single people mingled long into the night, and we’re pretty sure some magic happened, though we’ll report back once the wedding invites start to roll out. In the meantime, here’s a peek at what went on behind the scenes in Penthouse 2.

THE SPOT: Sixty LES | 190 Allen Street, NYC

THE STATS: 141 rooms, some of the best dining and drinking in the neighborhood (Blue Ribbon Sushi Izakaya/Kanpai Garden and Tiki Tabu), one chic outdoor pool perfect for summertime hangs and parties, and our favorite penthouses around

PERFECT FOR: Living your best suite life with a full staycay squad (see photos for reference)

If you know us by now, you know it’s not a complete staycation without some degree of on-demand beautification. THE STAYCATIONERS dialed up the crew at Stylisted for some quick dry styles and glam makeup lewks for the big night.

First things first: drams all around. Our high whisky priestess, Aberlour‘s Gemma Cole, joined in on the festivities, bar supplies in tow (and looking like a queen in the process).

With a closet full of Rebecca Minkoff and Marc Fisher goods, THE STAYCATIONERS suited up and promptly entered photoshoot mode, as one does.


Oh, look at the time. THE STAYCATIONERS’ presence is requested at the bar for the “Chicest Singles Mixer in NYC,” so the belles of the ball got into formation and filed into the elevator for the main event. Take a number, boys.

Keep up with THE STAYCATIONERS as they take over new hotels in new cities each month. This installment made possible by Sixty Hotels, Aberlour, Rebecca Minkoff, Marc Fisher, and Stylisted.

Special thanks to our lovely guest staycationers Christina Zayas, Amber Victoria, DJ Nicole Rosé, and Gemma Cole.
