This year, the Empire State Building (ESB) received unique gifts from Santa’s elves, including holiday decorations, musical performances, and repeated visits from the big man himself. The entire Observatory Experience is decorated with silver and gold highlights, including a sizable, brilliant menorah in front of the two-story structure model. Holiday photos can be taken by visitors on the famous 86th Floor Observatory in a corner exhibit that looks like a wintry landscape with birch trees and gold lights.

The iconic Fifth Avenue Lobby of the structure is decked out for the holidays with garlands, Christmas trees, and hanging lights. The Empire State Building is displayed in the famous Fifth Avenue windows with holiday scenes with gold, glitter, and candy-themed motifs. Tenants and guests can enjoy festive holiday music played by professional pianists from Monday through Friday in the Fifth Avenue Lobby from November 28 through December 30. On December 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Santa Claus will meet with guests in his own festively adorned section of the 80th Floor to hear their Christmas wishes and provide seasonal cheer.

Guests can enjoy coffee, beverages, and a meal at the recently opened Starbucks Reserve at the base of the Empire State Building after their visit with Santa. The 23,000 square foot, three-floor location is the first Starbucks Reserve with a full-service dining option. On the second and concourse levels, there are lounges where guests may unwind while enjoying breakfast, lunch, or dinner. On the main level, a grab-and-go coffee shop with unique ESB x Starbucks swag available for purchase.

A recent $165 million, top-to-bottom renovation of the Empire State Building Observatory Experience included a dedicated guest entry, an immersive museum with tactile and digital exhibits, and a rebuilt 102nd Floor Observatory. Heat lights are available at the 86th Floor Observatory to keep visitors warm while they take in the outdoor views all winter long. Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve will each have their own special illumination displays atop the Empire State Building’s famed tower.

The “World’s Most Famous Building,” the Empire State Building, is 1,454 feet above Midtown Manhattan from base to antenna and is owned by Empire State Realty Trust, Inc. (ESRT: NYSE). With a dedicated guest entrance, an interactive museum with nine galleries, and a remodeled 102nd Floor Observatory with floor-to-ceiling windows, the $165 million refurbishment of the Empire State Building Observatory Experience delivers an entirely new experience.
