It’s a New Yorker’s dream: a living space big enough to invite friends and family over without worrying about everyone stepping on each other’s toes. Sometimes even luxury homes don’t come equipped with grand entertaining spaces, but the three that follow on this list don’t have that problem. For all you aspiring hosts out there, here are our favorite party-ready pads.
A big and bright floor-through loft in TriBeCa is perfection when it comes to entertaining. The contiguous dining, living, and family room space creates a massive area for all the action, with a large L-shaped terrace at the end to handle the overflow. (And, come summer, everyone will be knocking down your door.) The open chef’s kitchen and high ceilings are a loft-lover’s delight.
What’s great about this SoHo co-op apartment is a layout that allows for privacy even during a party. The townhouse-style triplex has a large and open kitchen, dining and living room level with a beautiful fireplace, while the bedrooms are kept isolated on a separate floor. Upstairs there’s a 450-square-foot private terrace with open views and a deck that’s perfect for a picnic.
Our favorite East Village penthouse is a must on this list, and not only because it comes complete with an indoor slide that’s the talk of the town. Playground fun for all ages aside, the duplex condo is still an ultimate entertaining abode, featuring a wet bar, two terraces and private roof deck. Amenities in the building also include a rooftop pool with private cabanas, a sundeck, and a BBQ grill area. It’s a ready-to-go party pad that just needs your guest list.
