Morgans Hotel Group to Open Half & Half Dance Hall and Arcade
Morgans Hotel Group announced it will open Half & Half, a new arcade and dance hall, at the Hudson Hotel in New York City. The new nightlife concept will rotate its design and installations with new artists every few months, and is inspired by the music and art scene of downtown Manhattan from the 1980’s.
The first installation of Half & Half, called “Nostalgia,” will feature ten-foot high imagery of female soul dancers, graphic billboards of classic hip-hop lyrics, and black and white photography of theatrics.
The installation will also have a classic arcade in the upper lounge that will allow guests to play the games with custom Half & Half tokens or rent private areas that come with unlimited gaming.
Signature cocktails will also be part of the new dance hall, including the Half & Half, the Bees Knees, the Royal Sea Breeze, and the Sherbet Margarita Fishbowl.
Morgans Corporate Executive Chef Tien Ho will integrate bar snacks into the first installation as well. Snacks will include Half & Half party mix, deviled crab dip with Ritz Crackers, seven layer rainbow birthday cake, and pimento cheese dip with homemade soft pretzels.
Half & Half will be open from 6:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m. on Wednesdays through Saturdays,
