Over the last century, the building at 123 Nassau Street has truly stood the test of time. Known as one of Downtown’s most artistically enchanting addresses it has survived periods of flourishing and periods of abandonment. In 2016, the building was reborn with New Yorkers (and the international design community) comforted in the knowledge that the unparalleled structural and architectural integrity had remained during the launch of The Beekman, A Thompson Hotel.
The Beekman, A Thompson hotel has been expertly restored by acclaimed designer, Martin Brudnizki. Returning the iconic building to its former glory, while ensuring that the historic landmark exudes modern elegance and charm. Brudnizki enhances the intersection of classic and contemporary elements with his singular aesthetic vision evident in every corner.
But perhaps most evident in the divine signature penthouses located within the building’s turrets. Expect billionaire living with private entrances, rooftop terraces and views of City Hall Park, the Woolworth Building, and One World Trade Center. Curated original artworks adorn the walls of these multistoried apartment-like jewels with lavish furnishings and spacious marble bathrooms.
Those who enjoy gastronomic experiences will be pleased that the hotel takes hospitality seriously. Evidenced by the gathering of two greats from the New York scene, Chef Tom Colicchio and restaurateur Keith McNally who have created world-class dining experiences at both Augustine and Temple Court. These are not ‘hotel restaurants’ they are stand-alone, serious options for both revisiting international guests and locals who have reported back on being surprised, indulged and well nourished. The hotels most popular spot is The Bar Room, affectionately described as ‘Downtown’s Living Room’ due to its warm, welcoming and authentic atmosphere.
Pop in for an Old Fashioned and you will see why.
