Addison Hospitality Group has a very simple approach: Impeccable Service & Hospitality coupled with Innovative & Current Design. This recipe enables us to continually update our portfolio of hugely Successful Luxury Destinations.



Ric Addison company gained distinction and recognition with the opening of Ava Lounge at Dream Hotel, in 2002, starting the NYC Rooftop Lounge trend while continuing to remain one of NYC’s hottest Hotel Nightlife destinations today. With the opening of Ava Lounge, the challenge was to bring a large number of guests daily to a venue with no outside street signs and that required an elevator ride up 15 floors. A front page lifestyle story on Ava Lounge’s opening in USA Today and The New York Times in addition to being honored as “Best After Work” Drink spot by New York Magazine’s Best of New York helped put Ava Lounge on the map and the blue chip corporate clients and celebrities quickly made Ava Lounge one of the most sought after venues in New York City. Prior to Ava Lounge’s opening, Ric Addison had collaborated with such Hotel & Nightlife legends as Ian Shrager, and Rande Gerber. Most recently, Ric Addison added the low-key, chic Lounge & Restaurant The Bar at the Dream Hotel and The Inc Lounge at The Time Hotel which has become a Broadway Celebrity hotspot that recently hosted Lady Gaga and Madonna in the VIP “Pool Room.”

Under the leadership of Ric Addison, Addison Hospitality Group has enjoyed a long history of valued customer relations with New York City’s top tier industries like fashion, finance, media, law firms, entertainment and sports networks. Along with many other major capitol firms, publishing companies and entertainment networks.

Standing on the cutting edge of the Industry, we realize that success in the Hospitality Business entails many minor details and daily Managerial upkeep to make a great Restaurant & Lounge. We are constantly updating our venues with new looks, cutting edge cocktails and high profile guest hosts and events as well as staying current using social media & offering Platinum Hospitality with travel concierges.

Having 20 years of experience, we pride ourselves in the fundamental idea upon all Hospitality business was built: Creating a welcoming gathering place accompanied with top class food, drinks and services – home away from home.
