The city that never sleeps continues to thrill with chic new openings and smart urban additions.
Hot New Hotels:
Casa Cipriani South Street brought much-needed life to Lower Manhattan when it opened in September 2021. The slick new hotel has taken up residence in the Battery Maritime Building, a Beaux Arts landmark on the East River. Ace Hotel Brooklyn is another recent addition to the city. Opening in July 2021 in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill, this new hotspot hosts more than just tourists, with special events, artists in residence, and live performances. The much-buzzed-about Aman New York is another exciting new player coming to New York City with an opening rumoured to happen in the first quarter of 2022.
The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel has recently wrapped a multi-year refurbishment, resulting in new guest rooms; a new restaurant, Dowling’s at The Carlyle; and a new Valmont spa. The four-star Park Lane New York on Central Park South has also debuted a complete rebrand, with a style-forward aesthetic by Yabu Pushelberg. Elsewhere, the prestigious Langham New York on Fifth Avenue will be opening The Langham Club (for guests who book The Langham Club rooms) in March 2022, which is designed by Richmond International as an all-day club space.
New York is a city that likes to work hard and play harder, so there’s no shortage of new drinking holes and hotspots. New to the list is the exciting Overstory, on the 64th floor of 70 Pine Street in the Financial District, above the fine-dining restaurant Saga; the luxe new chalet-inspired pop-up bar Chalet de Ning on the rooftop of the exquisite Peninsula New York; and the new wine boutique Orange Glou, which showcases natural wine with weekly tasting events on the Lower East Side.
Places To Play:
Manhattan has a few new places to play including Little Island at Pier 55, a new green space stilted above the Hudson River off the Meatpacking District, and the sky-high, glass-bottomed, 71,938-square-foot new observation deck, Summit One Vanderbilt.
