Visit Dumbo House, NY
Where should you stay when visiting New York? The answer is fairly straight forward. Dumbo House.
Owned by the Soho House group, it's fair to say you can expect all the usual refinements of the brand portfolio (including other locations in Manhattan itself). With ‘houses’ spread globally, you can always rely on a certain level of home comfort and relaxed style. Interiors to slouch into, ever-comforting and tasty food menus, and, well let’s now lie now, the most entertaining people watching.
Dumbo house opened in autumn 2017, so it's high on the list of places to hang, whether you're a native New Yorker or a fly-by-night visitor. If you haven't yet managed to pay a visit then it should be on your list.
But why is Dumbo House so special? The view, for starters. With a panoramic, breathtaking vistas of the Statue of Liberty and the East River, Dumbo House has that extra pizazz. Sure New York is brimming with jaw-dropping locations to stay, but our money is on this, for now.
Commanding the top two floors of the original Empire Stores building on the banks of Brooklyn, not only does Dumbo House offer bar-life (positioned on the upper level) but Soho are also kitting out the ground floor of the building with a brand of Cecconi's. Nice. But the bedrooms are a work of art in their own right. Actually, it’s somewhat difficult to know where to spend your time, and you could quite easily not leave Brooklyn.
Soho House is a members group, but you can book in even if you aren't part of the club. Top tip: this place is always busy, so if you fancy a frolic here make sure you book in advance.
