New York City - Last week Bar d'Eau officially launched its first full summer season with a media and VIP party showcasing its stunning cocktails, delicious tapas menu and extraordinary ambiance and vistas.

Located on the seventh floor of the Trump SoHo Hotel, Bar d'Eau boasts a 6,000 square foot alfresco poolside lounge area with striking views of lower Manhattan. Asian design elements merge with understated European style to create a tranquil and serene atmosphere that should prove to be this summer's urban escape for vacationing visitors, as well resident Manhattanites.

Comfy, oversized, bamboo weave lounge chairs, couches and chaise lounges surround the Italian mosaic tiled pool and line the patio area in intimate clusters that lead to a small Bocce Ball court. The pool's cascading waterfall lends its own soothing music to the oasis atmosphere of Manhattan's latest and one of its most stylish rooftop retreats.

Bar d'Eau boasts an extensive specialty cocktail menu with their Spicy Margarita, made with red peppers, and the berry jam infused Bramble Gin cocktail designated as this summer's signature cocktails. Guests were also treated to selections from the bar's small bites menu, simply delicious! There is also an extensive wine selection with special emphasis on premium champagnes.

Trump SoHo teamed up with TUMI for this event (www.tumi.com), where the designer lifestyle company showcased their new line of fabulous sunglasses. These shades are not only beautiful in styles and palettes, but come with a two year, no-questions-asked guarantee. To the delight of the attendees, pairs of TUMI sunglasses were included in the gift bags.

The ladies were also treated to body bejeweling by Luxe Glow (www.akiyohenna.). Taking Henna to a whole new level, Luxe Glow creates natural, temporary body art that is breathtaking, particularly when embellished with Swarovski crystals.

Beyond a great weekend getaway hotel with luxury Penthouse suites among the tastefully appointed guest rooms, Trump SoHo is also a condominium property for those who want to own a residence in this stunning glass palace in lower Manhattan that includes a spectacular spa.

The pool deck is exclusive to hotel guests and condominium owners until 6 p.m., at which time Bar d'Eau and the poolside alfresco lounge area opens up to the public until 11 p.m. daily and until 9:30 p.m. on Sundays. The space is also available for private parties and events.
