Winter is baring its teeth here in NYC, and it has us seeking out refuge with good drinks, good food and good music. Here at The Knick, we’re taking care of all three with a full lineup of music events at our restaurants and rooftop. At Charlie Palmer at The Knick, find jazz Monday through Friday evenings from a rotating collection of local bands. Up atop Times Square at the hotel’s St. Cloud Social Rooftop, DJs take over on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with monthly full moon parties and other events as well. Here’s the full lineup of NYC winter 2017 events at The Knick.
