The Bowery Hotel

Nestled in the iconic center of New York, The Bowery Hotel has been a beacon of timeless luxury and sophistication since its opening in 2007. It offers guests unparalleled elegance and hospitality, with rock stars regularly returning for the exciting events that take place in the hotel’s lobby.

Each of the 135 sun-drenched rooms features floor-to-ceiling industrial-style windows offering stunning views of New York’s Lower East Side. Wooden floors with distinctive Oushak carpets complement rich velvet curtains and meticulous design details, giving the hotel the stamp of old-world New York elegance. Impressive marble bathrooms are equipped with antique brass fixtures and luxurious toiletries, with the luxurious linens being the icing on the cake of this mentioned elegance. You almost don’t want to leave the room, but it would be a shame because the hotel offers much more than just accommodation.

The Bowery is known for its elegant bar, The Bowery Lobby, where expert and highly charming bartenders serve seasonal cocktails and an extensive international wine list. Gatherings take place in the comfortable lobby furnished with antique sofas and a fireplace that adds a cozy aristocratic atmosphere. Ideally located at the intersection of NoHo, East Village, and Nolita, the hotel is an excellent starting point for nightlife. Here, rock stars start their exciting evenings, and sometimes they end them. There is also additional event space that hosts various concerts, parties, and promotions in New York, designed in a classic antique style with ceilings higher than 4 meters, wooden beams, reclaimed brick walls, Moroccan tile floors, antique tapestries, a glass-enclosed fireplace, and a spacious outdoor terrace. The hotel owners are also the founders of other cool hotels in the city such as The Jane, The Ludlow, and Hotel Chelsea, and they have transferred their expert impressions of the city’s nightlife and their penchant for design and cinematic history to this famous intersection of Bowery and 3rd Street.

As social drinking in New York is inseparable from food, the hotel also features Gemma restaurant, a rustic trattoria serving authentic Italian food and an extensive Italian wine list. Guests as well as locals are regulars here, and it’s a particularly good choice for larger groups. Since the hotel is located near some of the city’s best restaurants, it won’t be difficult to choose something else after experiencing the quality of Gemma. The same goes for nightlife, which is especially exciting in this part of the Lower East Side, from where you can quickly reach the East Village, and top-notch shops and galleries in SoHo and Nolita are just a pleasant stroll away. The expert concierge team can always recommend the best places for cocktails and find the right restaurant for any occasion. The warm staff and courteous, authentic service complete the quintessential experience of The Bowery Hotel in New York.

What to see nearby:

Tenement Museum

This unique museum reimagines an old tenement building on Orchard Street, which once had 22 apartments. For decades, it provided refuge for families arriving in the U.S. from Ireland, Eastern Europe, China, and beyond, hoping to create a new life; now dozens of authentically preserved rooms tell their stories. The often touching stories of former residents are interesting to experience as you sit on their former beds and sofas, browsing through ceramic knick-knacks, 1950s kettles, and gramophones. Free documentary film screenings on this topic are shown on the ground floor, and the museum shop is full of NYC souvenirs and LES bags.

Essex Market

Near the Tenement Museum is the Essex Market, a legendary New York market originally opened in 1940, and after renovation in 2019, even more beautiful and modern. A different selection of food kiosks here takes you into the gourmet world for which New York is famous, and foodies will enjoy it.
