Uncover hidden treasures in Paris, Dublin, London, New York and Rome by exploring “Destination Experiences”:
Uncommon Paris: Meet the Paris travelers are yet to be acquainted with – a burgeoning craft cocktail scene, state-of-the-art cinemas nestled in historic palace hotels, art concierges who hold the key to after-hour entry into the city’s top museums, and much more. Hotel Insider Activity: La Reserve guests inspired by the hotel’s design can return home with a memento of Belle Époque Paris by arranging a hotel-created excursion to the flea markets at Saint-Ouen, with Riad Kneife, the local vintage and antique expert.
Uncommon Dublin: Connect with vibrant and unpretentious Dublin. Highlights include afternoon art tea inspired by 19th and 20th-century masterpieces, private rooftop yoga sessions overlooking the Docklands, and authentic Irish music venues with free nightly shows. Local Tastemaker Recommendation: The owners and co-founders of Teeling Whiskey Company suggest a stop at the James Fox Cigar & Whiskey Store, the oldest family-owned cigar shop in the world, followed by a visit to The Little Museum of Dublin, boasting colorful memorabilia and stories of the city.
Uncommon London: Explore undeniably cool London, where quintessential British traditions meet cutting-edge art and architecture, music and design. Discover a theater lit only by candles on the banks of the Thames, learn about The Ritz London’s head concierge’s little black book, and find where a prominent British architect recommends cocktails with a view at a surprising pop-up bar. Hotel Insider Activity: At The Milestone Hotel guests can learn the centuries-old art of sabrage and join “the brotherhood of the golden sabre.” After the lesson’s completion, participants will enjoy their recently sabred bubbly over a three-course meal.
Uncommon Rome: Limitless surprises await in The Eternal City. Find out where a famous gelato-maker’s favorite piazza fountain is located and how to arrange a tour that reveals cameo views of Rome through hidden city keyholes. Local Tastemaker Recommendation: Margherita Buy, Italian cinema’s leading lady, recommends grabbing a backstage pass to “Cinecittà Shows Off,” a tour that goes behind the scenes at Cinecittà Studios. Opened in 1937, Cinecittà is the largest film studio in Europe where many 20th-century American classics were made, including Roman Holiday and The Pink Panther.
Uncommon New York: There’s a reason it’s known as the city that never sleeps. This guide shares where a Tony-Award-winning producer prefers to catch a show and dinner, the ideal location for drinking Martinis while perched above the buzz of Times Square, and how a fireside butler can create a cozy NYC getaway. Hotel Insider Activity: The Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca is a hub for innovative art and design. The hotel will arrange for an expert guide to lead guests through the nearby Whitney Museum of American Art, followed by a visit to a series of dynamic galleries in nearby Chelsea.
