Southwest Porch

Sip, smile, stay for a while.

Southwest Porch, located near the southern end of the Fountain Terrace, offers all visitors the perfect spot to relax and recharge. Equipped with swings and lounge furniture, The Porch houses a full bar featuring an extensive, hard to find and locally distilled whiskey list as well as craft beer and adult hot coffee and hot chocolate cocktails. The space also houses a restaurant with burgers, salads and more. Southwest Airlines® is giving all of New York an al fresco lounge to celebrate its service out of LaGuardia and Newark Airports. No purchase is necessary to partake in the ambiance and comfort.

Plus, stop by The Porch with your laptop, iPod, or cell phone for a different type of refueling – power outlets are available to keep all of your devices going.

Bring your lunch, your book, your friend, or just yourself. It’s a fantastic new way to enjoy NY’s most beautiful park.
