ny ny it’s a wonderful town

well hey everyone, how’s life?

it moves at the speed of light here in le big city! i’ve been working at home during the days but night have been filled with wonderful friends and beautiful places.

i can only take one at a time, there are so many fabulous facets to each and every one. this is my current favorite place for entertaining, the bowery hotel. if you’re in the city meeting friends for the holidays, this is the perfect place for a rendezvous. you can meet in the hotel lobby or at the bar, both are magnificent with a roaring fire and furniture upholstered in leather, mohair and velvet.

it’s downtown, right on the bowery between bond and great jones. we’re neighbors so we’re in and out, and every time we go we have the best time!

i haven’t stayed there and am only seeing their rooms for the first time right now.

and this could be my favorite restaurant in the city right now. it’s gemma, alongside the hotel. it’s got everything you could want in a large cozy room with tons of candlelight and ambiance. not to mention great food! i fall in love just walking in the door to this hotel and restaurant. if you’re here, enjoy it!

tomorrow i’ll be out and about all day and hope to find some ny magic. (note to self, bring camera)

til then, bon soiree and have a great night!

    oh I want to curl up in a big chair by that fireplace, drink in hand, right now! Looks like a movie set–but in the most warm, inviting way possible. I’m definitely putting The Bowery Hotel on my “must visit” list for my next NYC trip. Thanks for sharing your special spot.
