Southwest Toasts New York, New York


We are super pumped! Today, we are unveiling the Southwest Porch in Bryant Park. New York is a unique market, and it’s so exciting to introduce the Southwest brand to the Big City in a unique, FUN way.


We are spreading the news of our upcoming LaGuardia service by launching a porch-style hang out for New Yorkers to enjoy a tasty treat created by Tom Colicchio’s restaurant ‘wichcraft.


Once Customers step onto our Southwest Porch, they can take in the scenery, lounge in our comfy seats, and of course, order a beverage of their choice – including Southwest’s own branded beer, Southwest Summer Ale.  (Check out the pdf file attached below for the menu.)

Our CEO Gary Kelly will officially open the doors for business tonight by jumping behind the bar and serving up the first drink to our New York friends. The Southwest Porch will offer New Yorkers a beautiful place to relax from 5pm--9pm, Mondays through Thursdays and 12pm--4pm on Fridays.


If you find yourself in the Big Apple this summer, please stop by and enjoy a taste of our SOUTHWEST SPIRIT.
