Super Bowl XLVIII is just around the corner, and so is the opportunity of indulging in the world’s most expensive tailgate experience in New York City. The luxurious Chatwal New York Hotel, which is conveniently located just steps away from Times Square, is wooing well-heeled Super Bowl fans with an over the top tailgate party indulgence. Though tailgate parties usually occur in the parking lots at stadiums, the folks at Chatwal have given a posh twist to the term by hosting a $3 million indoor celebration for the upcoming American football game.
This is an ideal opportunity for those who are looking forward for just another reason to celebrate with family and close friends, after splurging on the New Year bash. The person who dares to foot the $3 million bill will be offered a weekend stay at the hotel’s Barrymore Suite. Spread over the whole tenth floor, the 4,500 square feet suite includes four bedrooms and four and a half baths as well as a 1,000 feet outdoor terrace. At The Chatwal New York Hotel, the Director’s Suite and the Producer’s Suite are nothing short of pure luxury. Both contain a sitting room, dining room, kitchenette, and two full bathrooms, and the latter, a private roof deck. The hotel combines both the suites, turning them into the Barrymore Suite for those keen to have the entire Penthouse to themselves.
Though it is the first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in a cold weather environment, about 60-70 guests can be entertained in the super luxe comforts of the suite. Of course, the world’s most expensive tailgate experience is loaded with world’s most expensive features. Watch the game on the most expensive 55-inch PrestigeHD TV which is coated in 22K yellow gold and studded with 72 carats diamonds by Stuart Hughes. Raise a toast to the winning team with one of the most expensive whiskey with a bottle of Macallan 64-year old Scotch in a Lalique decanter. Even beer drinkers can grab a bottle of Hair of the Dog which is also touted as the world’s most expensive. Each bottle comes wrapped in cashmere koozies to keep the beer cold! No tailgate party is complete without junk food. Hence celebrity chef Geoffrey Zakarian, of Lambs Club restaurant, has planned a grand treat of luxurious version a typical tailgate fare with caviar nachos, truffle pizza and more.
More ‘most expensive’ indulgences include Ghurka Black Dragon cigars at $1,150 a pop and Golden Indulgence sundae from New York’s Serendipity which is a $1,000 dessert served with golden spoons. Even lolling around matches up with the expensive theme as guests can relax on a $8,500 recliner chair developed by NASA.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the package also includes gifting a designer Super Bowl helmet to the guest as a memento!
