The new 229-room hotel celebrates China Town’s past, present, and future through design, experiences, and amenities curated to acquaint New York with the fun-loving, Joie de Vivre lifestyle.
Hotel 50 Bowery is highly inspired by the Lower Manhattan community and culture, which can be seen through the artwork that will be displayed in guestrooms by local artists Lowell Boyers, Simone Shubuck and André Saraiva. All rooms above the ninth floor offer stunning views of bustling Lower Manhattan streets and the iconic skyline, which are enhanced by the hotel’s outdoor public spaces on the second floor and is crowned with a rooftop terrace lounge overlooking the Manhattan skyline.
Hotel 50 Bowery’s ties to the Chinatown community are further showcased with The Gallery, a permanent exhibit from the Museum of Chinese in America, complete with resident curator, Herb Tam, who works for the museum. A partnership facilitated by hotel ownership, the exhibit pays homage to the destination’s past and will showcase many of the artifacts that were found on the hotel’s construction site, highlighting its colorful history – taverns, a gambling den, and vaudeville and motion picture theaters all called the hotel’s location “home” from the 1700s through the early 1900s.
The exhibit is adjacent to a 5,000-square-feet outdoor space, the Atlantic Garden, named after the historic beer hall that occupied the site in the 1850s. The hotel will also offer 1,900 square feet of indoor function space, perfect for intimate events catered by Chef Dale Talde. The Gallery, Boardroom and five unique suites feature natural light, city views and modern furnishings for meetings and events.
