The team that brought The DL and Dinner on Ludlow to the Lower East Side has recently built a rooftop lounge in Hell's Kitchen with sweeping views of Manhattan. The 5,000 square foot bi-level venue, boasting indoor and outdoor space, is located in the penthouse of the Hilton Garden Hotel at 251 West 48th Street near 8th Avenue.
Renowned designer Marc Dizon (Hakkasan Las Vegas, Revel, The Darby) was brought in to renovate and redesign the space and took his inspiration from the golden era of Hollywood. The 16th floor rooftop celebrates the bold patterns and relaxed environment of Beverly Hills pool lounges and outdoor gardens while the lower level lounge, with floor to ceiling glass windows, is inspired by the robust architecture of Richard Neutra and the post contemporary Hollywood Hills vernacular. It's a cozy lounge with a sunken living room feel. The color palette is silver and grey with warm woods.
