40th in NYC - Magic Hour Rooftop Bar

So for our night out we decided to head out to a rooftop bar. I’d had a look online for the best rooftop bars in NY and Magic Hour came up in the mix. The fact that it has a “winterized garden” won us over. I had also looked into night out packages on airbnb so we could be guaranteed a good night out. The package I had found was approx $80 a head and guaranteed free drinks all night. As it happened the guy was going to take us to this same bar so we decided to “risk the queues” and save ourselves that cash. In the end it was a snowy evening so it was pretty quiet and we walked straight through! Result! The downside was there was no going out to get nice pics with the NY backdrop. Never mind, we were too busy enjoying ourselves to care!

The brief for outfits was to wear something sequined or sparkly so we could end the night with our own bang…in lieu of fireworks. The girls seriously came through and drew a lot of compliments from people in the bar!! It was so cool to be with girls so ready to let their hair down and have a good time! I will not divulge too much about the night - I need to keep these girls sweet! haha! Our secret weapon was having Kola’s brother, Busoye, with us to step in whenever anyone got a little too friendly! He had somehow chatted with a promoter outside the bar so we got free drinks inside and then at some point in the night, some girls came out with a big “happy birthday Tanaka sign” and sparklers!! I felt like a princess!! You can catch the little video on my instagram.

Perfect night all round!!

When you have a make-up artist with you all night, you end the night looking like this! This was 3am on Saturday morning! A lot better than I ever looked after a night out in my younger days! Forty isn’t so bad after all!!!

We danced the night away, the DJ even throwing in a few Naija jams to the mix. We had the very best time and it was the perfect way to end the perfect day with my friends and family!
