The highly anticipated debut of Joie de Vivre’s very first New York property, Hotel 50 Bowery, is here! Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Chinatown neighborhood, the 229-room boutique hotel is committed to its deep roots in the Chinese community by preserving the history of its landmark address. The impressively designed 21-story building offers a boutique experience with artistic energy, Asian-inspired cuisine, and playful design.
In tune with Joie de Vivre’s style, Wimberly Interiors led the design of the hotel thoughtfully incorporating influences from Chinese culture and the surrounding neighborhood into the property. Stepping off the elevators and onto the floors of the guest room corridors, you are transported to a vibrant Chinese village at night with dimly lit hallways punctuated by large, bold works of art from Beijing-based graffiti artist Dake Wong.
Inside the rooms and suites are familiar materials such as distressed oak floors and luxe linens. Infused into the signature hand-plastered headboard wall are the traditional chinaware colors of blue and white. On the walls, you’ll find custom artwork thoughtfully curated in partnership with Exhibition A, a local New York outfit that collaborates directly with top contemporary artists to bring their works to boutique properties across the nation and abroad.
Complete with a stunning (and rather mind-blowing) view, The Crown rooftop bar and lounge opens with the hotel on the 21st floor. Three Kings Restaurant Group oversees the culinary concept, featuring light bites and an Asian-inspired cocktail program. Partners Chef Dale Talde, David Massoni and John Bush draw influence from the dynamic and culturally-rich Chinatown neighborhood. Signature restaurant Rice & Gold, which will feature dishes such as Thai Fried Chicken and Pho Soup Dumplings, and parlor lounge The Green Lady, are set to open this fall.
What else? Don’t miss Heart of Chinatown, the 1,500-square-foot exhibit located on the second floor in The Gallery that explores the history of Chinatown’s core streets through a partnership with the Museum of Chinese in America. Also noteworthy: the Atlantic Garden, a 5,000-square-foot outdoor space at the hotel named after the historic beer hall that occupied the site in the 1850s.
