Punchdrunk’s “Sleep No More,” an immersive theater experience loosely based on the story of “Macbeth,” has been wowing audiences since 2011. More than just a show, this experience spans five stories of Chelsea’s The McKittrick Hotel (530 W. 27th St.), including the Manderley Bar with live lounge performances that last late into the night.

Since the debut of “Sleep No More,” and its subsequent spectacular rise in popularity, The McKittrick has branched out to host special events — like themed party performances on occasions such as Valentine’s Day and Halloween.

This season, the “Sleep No More” team goes one step further, premiering additions that, as they attest, will posit the McKittrick as the area’s ultimate nightlife destination.

One example is Gallow Green, the rooftop that reopened in April offering panoramic city views. A cocktail list boasts offerings by mixologist Dave Wondrich and features a variety of alcoholic punches (punch drunk, get it?) that are available in single pours or to share. A limited menu includes an array of sweet and savory bites devised by chef R.L. King. Gallow Green will be open nightly through autumn. Guests don’t need tickets to “Sleep No More” to come upstairs and enjoy an evening of drinks under the stars — however, it’s the perfect place to imbibe before or after your evening of Shakespearean debauchery. Table reservations are strongly encouraged.

Of course, it just wouldn’t be “Sleep No More” if there weren’t always just one more surprise lurking around the bend. The McKittrick recently hosted the premiere party for Lady Antebellum’s latest album, as well as after-parties for the Tribeca Film Festival. Keep an ear to the ground for even more exciting opportunities and special guest appearances that are already in the works.

One way to stay on top of the latest announcements for parties, musical events, guest appearances and special performances is to sign up for Maximilian’s List by emailing reservations@sleepnomorenyc.com.
