How to do Manhattan Like a Roy from HBO’s “Succession”

Where to Stay, Dine and Play in NYC Like a Member of the Roy Family

As summer reluctantly gives way to fall and our favorite TV family to loathe, the Roys from HBO’s Succession,” prepare for a dramatic return to the small screen for season three of the Emmy-winning juggernaut. We imagine the Roy’s staff are covering the patio furniture at the $175-million Summer Palace in South Hampton, helicopters are being fueled, suede loafers brushed and tongues sharpened. Explore Manhattan Like a Roy Manhattan Itinerary

There are few precious places I would rather spend a fall day than Manhattan, and lately, from the announcement of the reboot of “Sex and The City” (called “And Just Like That”) to personal favorite Hulu’s “Only Murders in The Building,” Hollywood and the whole world seem similarly obsessed. 

Our obsession with the show and the city launched this idea. If I were a Roy and my multimillion dollar brownstone or penthouse was being remodeled, how would I spend a weekend in Manhattan? This is our best guess…

Greg Roy

Stay: Pendry Suite at Pendry Manhattan from $8,500—opening September 2021

One of our favorite hotels in California makes its way to Manhattan. The Pendry Suite boasts a  living room with a piano, fireplace and dining table for eight, plus a kitchenette.

Eat: Chelsea Square Diner

Greg is so under-assuming (even at nearly seven feet tall) that we could easily imagine him eating at this 24-hour diner at 3 a.m. after being kicked out of the Roy’s limo for a well-intended faux pas.

 

Do: Spin on 54th

With his incredible wingspan, we could imagine Greg dominating the tennis tables at Spin on 54th.

Do: Drinks and dancing at Paul’s Casablanca

This Moroccan-themed jungle, replete with disco balls, will be hard to talk your way into (unless you are Shiv Roy), but the people-watching will be well worth the energy expended.
