The Roxy — New York, USA
Manhattan’s iconic Tribeca Grand Hotel is now going by a new name. Known as The Roxy Hotel from henceforth, the industrially glamorous hotel might not seem that different for those familiar with the soaring triangular atrium and red brick-lined interior. A longtime haunt for the neighbourhood’s film and fashion crowds, the hotel has thankfully preserved many of the aspects that has made it a New York mainstay since it first opened in 2000.
Still, in honour of its new name (which is steeped in New York history in its own right), The Roxy Hotel now boasts a slew of new features, including rooms that have been refurbished by designer Briana Stanlety, a stylish outpost of the East Village hair salon Blackstones, a new modern American restaurant concept in the lobby helmed by chef Joseph Abbruzzese, and an inviting all-day coffee bar called Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee.
The fun doesn’t stop there either. The Roxy Hotel Cinema, the property’s plush, 100-seat movie theatre, is home to a new film series curated by Submarine Films that will also feature Q&A sessions with local directors. Next door, The Django – a jazz-oriented nightclub with cocktails by Maxwell Britten – will help to keep both hotel guests and local New Yorkers satiated well into the night.
