Entertaining at EVGB

When the sun shines down on the East Village, it’s a fine time to host a party at your rental apartment. The luxury rentals at EVGB are replete with comfortable and elegant facilities to ensure that your summer soiree catches all those golden rays—and continues long into the evening. Want a taste of what your perfect party might look like? Then read on.

A ray-catching roof deck

How to make your friends grin with excitement and simultaneously green with envy? Commence the party on EVGB’s roof deck: 19,000 square feet of stunning landscaped gardens. There is no better place in the entire East Village to bronze away in the sunshine while admiring vistas of Lower Manhattan glinting in the sun. Get the caipirinhas flowing at the wet bar, as you invite your special guests to recline on the tiered wood seating, ensconced in lush greenery. For your more active guests, there’s a bocce court and putting green. And for anyone who needs to cool down? The roof deck even has outdoor showers.

A dip in the pool

The fun and games don’t stop at bocce. EVGB is equipped with an indoor lap pool in its two-level fitness center. Invite your friends to take a dip. It’s saltwater, too, which is excellent for the skin and sure to prompt fond memories of Long Island swims gone by. Flip between the pool and the nearby steam room, as you work up an appetite for the feast that is ahead. For those who would rather chill poolside with an ice water, luxurious cream-hued loungers are on standby. This is the life.

A rooftop feast

By now, your guests will be wanting dinner. Time, then, for Act Two. Head back to the roof deck, where the open-air grill kitchen is in full glory. Ribs, chops, and chicken breasts sourced from the legendary East Village Meat Market. Crisp and colorful salads made with rainbow chard, tomatoes on the vine, scallions, and cucumbers from East Village Organic. Hand-picked and artisanal Rioja, Veneto, Syrah, and Prosecco procured from Some Good Wine. All in the comfort of the roof deck’s pergola-covered alfresco dining area. This is a BBQ to remember. Especially when you retire to the rooftop fire pits and watch the sun set over the city. What a view. What a feeling.

A classy nightcap

Your guests, of course, will be reluctant to leave. Treat them to a final nightcap out in your spacious garden or on your beautiful balcony or oversized terrace. Feel the East Village’s summer air gradually cool, as the night winds down with fine whisky, fine friends, fine surroundings. Then wait for the first person to make the wisecrack: “Same time next week?” Except they’re probably not joking.
