Christmas And New Year Holiday Table Setting. Celebration

Next time you’re going out for dinner or a drink in the Roosevelt Island area, consider paying a visit to one of these restaurants that celebrate love for the holiday season with their festive décor! Not only will you enjoy their delicious food, but you can also marvel at the beautiful decorations put up on display for this special time of year. Check out the restaurants that put their best on display near the Octagon.

Rolf’s –Perhaps the most well known restaurant to put up a dazzling Christmas display is Rolf’s. With lights and wreaths adorning the ceilings, and ornaments and pointsettas lining each wall, its safe to say this restaurant attracts a tourist crowd; nonetheless it is definitely worth seeing! Although it may be hard to get a dinner reservation from now until the holidays, don’t worry; you can always stop in for a drink at the bar, or make reservations after the holidays. The Christmas display will be up until mid-May!


Ophelia Lounge NYC – Stop in for a drink at Ophelia Lounge in Midtown East to step into a winter wonderland! Located on the 26th floor of Beekman Place, the Lounge is decked out for the holiday season with a “snow globe in the sky” theme. This theme incorporates glimmering garlands featuring thousands of crystals, sparkly snowflakes, and white sheepskin draped over the furniture.


Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden – Head across the river to Astoria’s Bohemian Hall and Beer, a German-leaning beer garden that’s fully decorated for the Christmas holiday. Grab a brew and some German fare and enjoy the holiday sights of decorated Christmas trees, illuminated reindeer and a beautiful light display.
