Nap York: NYC’s New Nap Café
Located in Midtown NYC, new 24/7 nap café Nap York offers nap pods, workspaces, healthy meals and wellness classes for people to recharge on the go. Unlike other nap cafés, it acts as an all-encompassing healthy living hub.
On the ground floor, an automated café serves smoothies, salads and sandwiches on a conveyor belt (guests place their orders on iPads). The lobby also has a green wall, smartphone chargers and seating space. Upstairs, the second floor houses soundproof nap pods with essential oil diffusers, noise-cancelling headphones and twinkling lights resembling stars.
On the third floor, guests can cocoon themselves in moon chairs surrounded by greenery, with soundproof walls silencing the traffic outside. Meanwhile, on-the-go workers can book serene sitting and standing desks on the fourth floor, which feature soundproof curtain dividers for privacy. Yoga and meditation classes are also available, and can be purchased singly or in packs of 10. Travellers will appreciate the Tesla shuttle service to nearby airports, as well as shoeshine and left-luggage amenities.
Nap pods, desks and moon chairs are booked in half-hour increments and can be reserved online or on-site. Monthly memberships are available, and entitle guests to discounts on all bookings.
