NoMo SoHo Announces Calendar of Pride Month Activations


NoMo SoHo Announces Calendar of Pride Month Activations

Including Hotel offers and Activities at NoMo Kitchen and Nina’s


 NoMo SoHo, the iconic hotel located in the heart of SoHo, has announced its collection of events for Pride Month, June 2022. Included in the property’s pride celebrations are a package for guests staying at the hotel in the month of June as well as a calendar of events in the two on-site food and beverage outlets: NoMo Kitchen restaurant and Nina’s x Liquid Lab cocktail lounge. The resort’s events will feature queer-own brands and benefit LGBTQIA+ institutions including Leslie-Lohman Museum of Art and Way Out.


The Pride Fantasy Suite offer, now available on the NoMo SoHo website from $419 per night, gives guests the opportunity to stay in the heart of one of New York’s most exciting neighborhoods while celebrating the spirit of Pride. Guests will stay in a suite or premium corner room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the Manhattan skylines and, upon arrival, will receive a box of Bacardi Pride merchandise including a shirt, jacket, and fanny pack, and more. The room will be decorated for Pride and four ready-to-drink Bacardi welcome cocktails will be awaiting guests’ arrival. During their stay, travelers will be conveniently located just 20 minutes from the Pier 11 ferry, with access to Governors Island (home of this year’s NYC Pride), as well as other iconic LGBTQIA+ institutions such as Stonewall Inn and the Leslie-Lohman Museum.


Locals and travelers can also join in on an array of on-property events from tasting sessions to sexual wellness talks and even a queer prom. Events will include:

-          6/12 – Drag brunch at NoMo Kitchen in partnership with Ume Liqueur, featuring performances from local drag queens. The restaurant will serve a prix-fixe menu featuring two Ume Spritz cocktails. Guests can reserve a table for seating at 11:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. on Resy
