An Ideal New York City Location
Those who really know New York City understand it as an amalgam of small villages, each neighborhood with its own distinct identity. The Loews Regency Hotel, located in the heart of Manhattan, has the good fortune to straddle several of the city's most exciting and vital neighborhoods: residential Park Avenue, with its quiet elegance; Fifth and Madison Avenues, lined with chic boutiques; the vibrant energy and skyscrapers of Midtown; and the tranquility of Central Park.
The undisputed home of the “Power Breakfast”
Ask any aficionado about the place to breakfast in Manhattan and they will undoubtedly point to the iconic restaurant at the Loews Regency Hotel. From 7 AM to 10 AM, on any given weekday morning, black town cars with their drivers waiting line up three-deep outside the hotel on Park Avenue and 61st Street. Inside, the tables fill with New York’s upper echelon—movers and shakers from the worlds of Wall Street, business, media and politics. Observing a morning ritual established over the last 35 years, they have made the Loews Regency the undisputed home of the “Power Breakfast.”
The Power Breakfast began informally during the financial crisis of the mid-70s, when Bob Tisch, the hotel’s founder, invited the city’s business and political leaders to The Loews Regency before the workday started, to discuss ways to help the city recover. Recognizing the significance of its participants, he dubbed it the “Power Breakfast,” and in doing so, forever changed how business was done in New York. Over the years, the Power Breakfast has become a signature of the Loews Regency Hotel and it is still going strong. The city’s leaders, both in the public and private sectors, continue to meet here on a daily basis to discuss business and close deals.
