Occasionally something comes along that really catches our eye. Something special, something that sends a tingle through the bones, something with that often-quoted but rarely seen quality – the X-factor. With that in mind we would like to tell you about a new property in New York which we guarantee will leave you amazed, impressed, and desperate to stay longer – that property is 50 Bowery. One thing is for sure – pretty soon the events world will sit up and take notice, because 50 Bowery is everything you want in a hotel, and it’s in the heart of New York’s Chinatown. And the best news of all is that 50 Bowery is scheduled to open in May.
Location-wise, 50 Bowery is right where you want to be. It’s a stone’s throw from Little Italy, and a short walk from Tribeca. You’re a stroll from Manhattan Bridge, and for those with an interest in the financial district, you don’t even need to take a taxi. New York itself isn’t short of things to do – in fact it’s sometimes difficult to choose, so many are the activity options. 50 Bowery makes your choices much easier. Art lovers can enjoy the nearby Museum of Contemporary Art, or for those looking at something less mainstream there is the constantly changing Bowery Mural, an outdoor showcase for street artists. Our personal favourite is the Museum of Chinese in America, where you can learn about the historical contributions of Chinese immigrants to American Society. The hotel itself also boasts an impressive art collection.
But there’s much more in the locale too. The One World Observatory is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere, and it’s not too far from 50 Bowery. And being in Manhattan’s Lower East Side you are not short of places to eat in true New York style. It feels like Katz’s deli is a part of the life blood of the Big Apple, with its famous towering sandwiches; but it’s just one of many great places to eat and drink in downtown New York. Or if you feel like exploring then the two bridges – Manhattan and Brooklyn – are within walking distance. Cross over into Brooklyn and you really are in for a treat. Brooklyn Flea Market is world famous and is everything you would expect it to be, and more.
Let’s get back to 50 Bowery. This is a boutique hotel with personality, originality and more. The rooms are light and spacious, with original and unique artwork that hint at the creativity in this hotel. You have the services that you would expect from any top hotel, but you also have the feeling that you’re a part of something new, fresh, fun and exciting, because 50 Bowery have gone that extra mile for business clients too. Their meeting space includes The Gallery, which is an event space like no other. It’s curated by the aforementioned Museum of Chinese in America, combining history, culture and style. There is also a huge 2nd floor terrace and a very large garden, which is unusual for New York City. But the 50 Bowery is no ordinary hotel. From the entrance to the rooftop bar on the 21st floor, every aspect of this hotel oozes style. Catering follows suit, with some of the most innovative menus you will find thanks to the Asian fusion cuisine prepared by their chef Dale Talde.
To quote Frank Sinatra… Start spreading the news, 50 Bowery is THE place to be.
