All the pics from the glamorous Aman Hotels event

We’ve all heard of and daydreamed about the the Aman Hotel in Tokyo.

The five-star hotel situated in centre of the buzzing city, Aman has carved out a reputation as one of Tokyo’s top hotels.

Now, New York City will soon be graced with its own hotel, slated to open in 2020.

The property, located on Manhattan Island, will blend the pulse of the city with the soul of Aman, joining the much-lauded Aman Tokyo as the brand’s second urban destination, and will be Aman’s third US property after Amangiri and Amangani.

Situated in the heart of Manhattan at the crossroads of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, overlooking Central Park, Aman New York will occupy the iconic Crown Building and will comprise not only guest rooms and suites, but will also house the first urban Aman Residences, a collection of just 20 incomparable private homes, inviting owners to be part of a very select community.

To celebrate the news, Aman hosted a glamorous event, and the room was packed to the brim with journalists, hoteliers, influencers and everything in between.

Check out all the photos from the event here:

This Aloha Friday wrap is of mammoth proportions! Ok, it’s quite reasonably sized, but it is filled with fire-breathing dragons. Ok, that isn’t true either.
