We can all agree that there are few things in life quite as enjoyable as relaxing by a pool at sunset with good company, right?
It’s a pleasure in life that doesn’t include much room for improvement – except maybe that the pool in question is positioned at 540ft and offers panoramic views of the incredible East Side skyline.
If this sounds like the sort of experience that you could certainly get used to, you’ll want to get in touch with the team at The Sentry, one of New York’s newest – and most exclusive – members-only clubs.
The Sentry is situated within the American Copper Buildings, perhaps the most eye-catching addition to the famous Manhattan skyline in recent years, complete with its oxidised copper facade and New York’s highest skybridge. Completed in 2017, an address at this luxury apartment complex is one of NYC’s most coveted.
Commanding the building’s highest floors and vast rooftop, The Sentry’s skyline bar, lounge and pool area offers guests a private oasis to relax and unwind in surroundings like no other. Premium cocktails, liquors, champagnes, wines and top-quality food are on offer throughout the day in the bar and lounge, which is open to non-members on selected occasions – perhaps in the knowledge that few could experience everything on offer during an afternoon at The Sentry and not immediately reach for a membership form.
However, the rooftop pool – surrounded by lush greenery and plenty of chic poolside furniture – is strictly members-only! So, if you find yourself in possession of one of NYC’s hottest memberships and feel that a day enjoying the pool could be elevated only by the company of a good friend, you’d best begin asking around your social circle.
Be sure to mention that this isn’t simply a pool pass, though. Membership at The Sentry comes with no shortage of perks, including poolside meditation, morning yoga classes and guided astronomy sessions, just to name a few – it seems that every part of your personal wellness regime is taken care of here.
Applications for the 2021 season are now open to residents of the American Copper Buildings but are expected to open to non-residents within the coming weeks, as the doors to The Sentry are set to re-open in late May. Current fees stand at $2600 for a single person, while couples can gain access to the club for a total of $4300 when they purchase a membership together.
Speaking of New York’s hottest memberships, applications for acceptance into Don’t Die Wondering’s discreet events society are currently open.
Membership with Don’t Die Wondering offers insider connections to the very finest within the worlds of art, fashion, music, culture and travel – and with our events across London and New York being as exclusive as they are, we don’t often open our application process to new potential members.
All applications are reviewed by our committee and are considered on a case-by-case basis, so not everyone can be accepted into our inner circle, of course. If you think you may be a good fit, however, we can’t wait to hear from you.
