Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Is About To Take Manhattan

Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Is About To Take Manhattan

Wastin’ away again in Margaritaville
Searchin’ for my long lost shaker of salt
Some people claim that there’s a woman to blame
But I know it’s nobody’s fault

New York City now has a one-of-a-kind escape in the heart of Times Square. With 234 guest rooms, this means island hopping has come directly to the big apple. A large model of Jimmy Buffett’s seaplane, Hemisphere Dancer, has landed in the center of this brand-new 32-story hotel, located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 40th Street. A 32-foot replica of the Statue of Liberty, complete with a margarita in hand means it is time to relax.

Costing almost $370 million and taking three years to complete July, will not just be a celebration of America, but a victory for the Jimmy Buffet brand. July 1st is the grand opening date. However Jimmy Buffett gave a surprise performance Thursday to show off his new Margaritaville Resort Times Square, as you can see in this CBSN video.

A heated outdoor pool, retail store, concierge, valet parking, laundry/valet service & fitness center await guests. Also on hand will be an on-site synagogue, separate from the resort. The reason, it was grandfathered into the new development because of a 1970s lease with the building’s former owner, Parsons School of Design.
