Hotel 50 Bowery, located in Manhattan’s Chinatown district, reflects and celebrates the Asian society in the surrounding area. Hotel 50 Bowery’s rooms include floor-to-ceiling windows that maximize the use of natural light, and all levels above the ninth floor feature city skyline views. Hallways are vibrantly decorated with graffiti-style artwork influenced by artist Dake Wong.
Located on the second floor of Hotel 50 Bowery is The Gallery, which features a permanent art exhibit titled “The Heart of Chinatown” that was installed by the Museum of Chinese America. “The Heart of Chinatown” takes guests on a journey through the history of Chinatown’s core streets and displays artifacts found at the property’s construction site, painting a colorful picture of the location’s past lives as taverns, movie theaters, and even a gambling den.
Hotel 50 Bowery’s elaborate 5,000-square-foot outdoor space, the Atlantic Garden, is named after the historic beer hall that called the property home in the 1800s, and can be used as a hang-out spot or for events. Dining options include Rice & Gold, the hotel’s 220-seat signature restaurant, where guests can enjoy authentic Asian-style cuisine, as well as The Green Lady, a parlor lounge with music and entertainment. Hotel 50 Bowery also has a rooftop bar and lounge, The Crown, which offers international street food and Asian-inspired cocktails.
The 229-room hotel is the first Joie de Vivre property in New York City. The property opened in May 2017 and is owned by the Harilela and Chu families.
