Thanksgiving Event - Float

2023 Thanksgiving Day Parade Viewing Party at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse

This Thanksgiving, elevate your parade experience to unimaginable heights with Beyond Times Square’s exclusive parade viewing party at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse. Imagine witnessing the magic of the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from the comfort of a stunning three-story, climate-controlled venue situated directly on the parade route in Midtown Manhattan.

With floor-to-ceiling windows and a spacious second-floor balcony, the views of the parade’s magnificent marching bands, fabulously decorated floats and those world-famous ginormous balloons are nothing short of breathtaking.

Then there’s the scrumptious hot breakfast and brunch buffet featuring fresh fruits, assorted pastries and a diverse range of fabulous fare that you’ll be feasting on throughout the morning. And don’t forget the unlimited mimosas and bloody marys – great for toasting to this day filled with wonder and gratitude.

The atmosphere is just as exciting inside as it is outside – thanks to live performances by Broadway performers and tunes spun by a DJ. And for the little ones – we have plenty to keep them occupied while waiting for the parade to make its way down Sixth Avenue – including a balloon maker, a face painter and a caricaturist!

Don’t just watch the parade on TV – or even standing in a crowd exposed to the unpredictable weather that the fourth Thursday in November brings. Instead, choose to experience the unforgettable Thanksgiving morning that the experts at Beyond Times Square bring to life each year. (PS – You may just want to stick around for the week when you see what we have planned next!)
