Summertime and the Livin’s Easy at Octagon

July 29, 2019

There’s never a lack of outdoor events when it’s summertime near Roosevelt Island! The best thing about these events featured below, though? If you can’t make it to the July dates, these events are series taking place through the summer into fall. Check out the listings below to  see what’s happening near The Octagon this month and beyond.

Rooftop Cinema Club – Manhattan may not have drive-in movie theatres, but it does have a rooftop cinema club! Get in on the outdoor movie fun and attend one of the movie showings taking place this month at Skylawn Rooftop Bar at Embassy Suites, this year’s host of the Cinema Club. Movies featured this month include classics like Casablanca and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, cult-favorites like The Big Lebowski and Dazed and Confused, as well as new releases such as Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born (2018). If you can’t make any of the movies this month, there were also be showings in August and  early September. For more information, check out the link below.

Mister Sunday Day Party – Your summer wouldn’t be complete without having attended a Mister Sunday, summer day party. Taking place each Sunday from now through October Sunday, the party takes place at Nowadays in Queens. This outdoor party features an abundance of barbecue and vegan/veggie-friendly options, in addition to an outdoor bar with plenty of beer, sangria and margaritas to go around. Listen to live DJ music playing everything from house, funk and disco all day long. Learn more about this weekly party at the link below.

Grand Baazar NYC – If you haven’t already checked out Grand Bazaar, NYC’s biggest curated weekly market, there’s never a better chance to stop by. Although the event takes place year round, what better time is there to spend some times outdoors then in the summer. Travel cross-town to 100 W 77th Street to browse artisan handmade jewelry, home décor, vintage and antique goods and so much more. There are also plenty of food options to go around if you’d like a treat or save it for later at home. The event series takes place every Sunday, year-round from 10am – 5:30pm.
