Hipster hang out with haute gastropub, buzzy seafood joint, packed lobby bar and stylish vintage vibe
Your dream vintage store come to life, from original stained glass ceilings and a 1904 tile floor to taxidermy and a photo booth. Even the staff is expertly styled with custom Chuck Ts, Levi’s skinnies, and Surface to Air tie chains. Wall murals, record players with a rotating vinyl collection (in some rooms), vintage furniture and Smeg minifridges stocked with Brooklyn Lager and beef jerky make you feel like you’re crashing at a friend’s pad. The flipside? Like most New York apartments, some of the 275 guest rooms are small. But the Ace is such a local's hang that it’s easy to forget it’s a hotel. From April Bloomfield’s famous Breslin gastropub and seafood joint The John Dory to the buzzy lobby bar (packed with a mix of freelance creative types checking email and sipping Stumptown coffee during the day and a bespectacled, skinny jean crowd boozing at night) to the downstairs event space (home to DJ nights, movie screenings and celeb parties) to their edgy boutiques, you’ll be lucky if you ever make it back to your room.
In the Area
Most tourists know the hotel’s neighborhood because of Herald Square and Macy’s, but locals know it as Koreatown. Grab some Joo-Mool-Reok at Madangsui and then kick out some karaoke tunes by renting a private room at Gagopa. For a fine-dining splurge, head to chef Daniel Humm’s Atrium restaurant at the flawlessly styled NoMad hotel, a block away. Or stay onsite and score some new duds at the hotel’s outpost of the ultra-hip Opening Ceremony before checking out FIT’s free Museum of Fashion.
