NoMad Media Roundup: TONY on The Library, The New York Times on The Redbury
NoMad’s fantastic offering of bars, restaurants, hotels and galleries regularly receives attention from the New York media. Here is some of the latest coverage of the neighborhood:
Library Bar in Time Out New York
Some bars are ideal for raucous group gatherings, some for low-lit romantic dates, while others are designed for the social solitude and adventure involved with going to a bar alone. Time Out New York recently toured New York City to find the best bars for traveling solo and Library Bar at the NoMad Hotel came in at number two on the list.
Why is Library Bar so well suited to the singular traveler? Time Out notes the top notch program of food and cocktails along with the open atmosphere of a hotel bar where lively conversations with strangers can bloom at any moment. Sometimes it’s best to settle down with a drink and a good book, and for that The Library happens to feature two floors of curated books. The space lends itself to exploration, with nooks and crannies and a vintage spiral staircase imported from the South of France. But if you are the solo traveller in question, just be sure to get to The Library early, because after 4 p.m. it is open exclusively to NoMad Hotel guests.
The Redbury in The New York Times
We recently covered The Redbury New York in one of our Real Estate Roundups and the brand new hotel has also caught the eye of The New York Times Travel Section. In a June story on the best new hotels in New York City, the newspaper included The Redbury, “a bohemian-inspired boutique hotel in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood.”
The Times notes that the hotel is already open, although renovations to its location in the former home of the historic Martha Washington Hotel will not be entirely complete until late summer. The hotel trades heavily on the neighborhood’s Tin Pan Alley history with music-inspired design motifs such as gramophones and vintage black and white photographs. The Redbury’s unique embrace of NoMad’s past in the context of its rapidly evolving present, plus the ground floor proximity of Danny Meyer’s always popular Marta, is sure to draw further media attention to The Redbury New York through the summer and fall.
The hotel also features space for meetings and special events, such as the recent celebration of America’s Best 100 Wine Restaurants of 2016 by Wine Enthusiast magazine.
