Where anyone belongs.

A New York City based hospitality group for all New Yorkers, Authentic Hospitality focuses on providing warm, unique and welcoming experiences in the restaurant, bar and nightlife spaces.

our capabilities

off site pop ups

As seen at Ray’s Art Basel pop-up in December 2021 and Ray’s x Bumble’s South x Southwest weekend house party venture in March of 2022, our venues are excellent opportunities to leverage brand awareness at key cultural moments throughout the United States and beyond. We look to partner with brands with a similar mindset to create memorable, temporary activations nationwide

Food and beverage operations

Backed by decades of experience, we specialize in operating restaurants, cafes, bars and nightclubs, either as standalone properties or as part of a larger property framework, such as a hotel. Our financial acumen and wide breadth of expertise deliver both bottom line results and a top notch guest experience

cultural programming

Our diverse network of creative talent allows us to develop unique and wholly original cultural programming - we partner with top musical and culinary talents, beverage professionals, and producers to create venues with both depth and breadth of experience
