Guests can now pop the question and toast to their "yes!" at the top of the World's Most Romantic Building
NEW YORK, Oct. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the Empire State Building (ESB) launched 'Happily Ever Empire' – an unforgettable proposal package that provides couples with VIP access to the Observatory Experience. Ticket holders are invited to pop the question at a prime, dedicated corner of the building's iconic, open-air 86th Floor Observatory and pop a bottle of Champagne to celebrate the memorable moment.
The exclusive package – priced at $1,000 per couple – includes a private guided tour through the Empire State Building's immersive exhibits, which feature the building's history and the classic love stories that have taken place within. After couples have celebrated their engagement on the world-famous 86th Floor Observatory, they're invited to head up to the 102nd Floor Observatory, with its floor-to-ceiling windows for breathtaking photos with stunning 360-degree views.

"The Empire State Building has played host to so many love stories in its history, and we are delighted to now offer an exclusive, romantic, and customizable proposal experience for couples from around the world."

The renovations also include industry-leading indoor environmental quality (IEQ) improvements such as active bi-polar ionization, MERV 13 filters, and increased ventilation which led to the building's achievement as the first in the Americas to receive the WELL Health-Safety Rating.
