If it’s a warm sunny day, you’re on vacation, or you’re sipping a margarita then there’s a song that’s likely to get stuck in your head. Margaritaville by Jimmy Buffet has long been one of the most popular songs of summer and warmer times. It makes people happy to sing along and envision themselves on the beach with margaritas. Well, it looks like the dream of turning that song into reality is closer than ever. That’s because New York City may soon have an entire hotel dedicated to Margaritaville.
According to GrubStreet, two New York firms are in late negotiations to create an entire 29-floor tropical-themed hotel. They’re eying a location that on 560 Seventh Ave for their building plans. Nothing is a done deal yet but it sure does seem likely that this Jimmy Buffet hotel will be built. It’s in a perfect location, as well. New Yorkers and tourists can head over to Broadway to catch a showing of Escape to Margaritaville before checking out the new hotel.
This new attraction in New York City is sure to attract tourists from all over the globe. There are countless fans of Jimmy Buffet and even more that are fans of that song! There’s no word yet on what type of bars and restaurants the restaurant will hold. It’s probably safe to speculate that they will be offering up island drinks and most importantly, Margaritaville. Bright flashy lights also seem to be a theme of Margaritaville hotels. Last January, there were plans to start the building but those were stopped. It seems that this time is the real deal.
There are already a few Margaritaville hotels in Florida and Tennessee but the one in New York is a bit different. It’s an interesting concept to build one in the city. It’s perfect for those who want to vacation somewhere where they get the big city feel but also want to feel like they’re on a tropical vacation. This new hotel combines both and it’s sure to be a smashing hit to anyone that wants to feel like they are in a tropical paradise.
