Mission Statement

The New York City Hospitality Alliance (The Alliance) is a not-for-profit association founded in 2012 to represent and serve restaurant and nightlife establishments throughout the five boroughs. Home to more than 24,000 eating and drinking establishments, employing more than a quarter of a million people, our industry is vital to the economic footprint and social fabric of New York City.

The Alliance bridges the gap between the hospitality industry, government and the press. We advocate for a fair and equitable regulatory environment that removes barriers to entrepreneurship and job creation.  We seek to reduce unnecessary regulatory burdens, streamline the permit and licensing process, cut the red tape, and represent the industry’s perspective on proposed laws, regulations, trends and other matters impacting restaurant and nightlife establishments.

Members of The Alliance gain exclusive access to operational guidance; up-to-date information on the ever-changing regulations and trends; invites to industry-only trainings, educational and social events; and, a suite of customized services to help their businesses save time and money.

Restaurant and nightlife establishments that join the New York City Hospitality Alliance become part of our tight-knit community and ensures our industry is represented and served.
