Housed in a stunning converted Beaux-arts building, the NoMad Hotel combines modern sensibility with the hotel’s historic architectural magic. Designed by Jacques Garcia, the interior’s sumptuous aesthetic was inspired by the Parisian flat he grew up in. The grand lobby mirrors its grandeur with bohemian rooms swathed in rich dark wood, cabernet-red velveteen chairs and a library with a whimsical spiral staircase. The lobby bar serves up some of the best craft cocktails in all of New York City and the critically acclaimed restaurant is a must visit. Helmed by chef Daniel Humm and restaurateur Will Guidara, the eatery is situated in a glass atrium with a lavish menu featuring dishes like an epic roast chicken served with black truffle, foie gras and brioche. The rooms feel like a Parisian pied-à-terre with hand-picked art, custom-designed furnishings, French writing desks and hardwood floors made from reclaimed maple.
