Moxy NYC East Village opened in the heart of Manhattan’s East Village directly across from Webster Hall, the legendary concert venue.
The hotel features 286 guest rooms, co-working spaces, 13,000 square feet of meeting and event space and tech-savvy amenities as well as restaurants, bars, and cultural programming.
With interior design by Rockwell Group and architecture by Stonehill Taylor, Moxy East Villages’ design drew inspiration from various eras in East Village history, from the earliest settlers to the punk era to today.
“Moxy is a brand that has always boldly broken the rules of a conventional hotel experience, and we’re excited to be able to bring our fun and spirited brand to New York’s iconic East Village to help evolve the hospitality scene in the neighborhood,” said Toni Stoeckl, global brand leader, Moxy Hotels and vice president, Distinctive Select Brands, Marriott International.
Interior design is inspired by urban archaeology, with the hotel’s 13 floors loosely conceived as homages to different eras in the East Village’s past and present, as well as its future. Three check-in kiosks just inside the entrance are assemblages by local artist Michael Sanzone, made from found objects and materials. Behind the kiosks, striped tapestries hang on the walls and bleed onto the floors.
Food and beverage outlets include Alphabet Bar & Café, Cathédrale and Little Sister, and the rooftop bar will launch Spring 2020.
The rooftop bar is designed to resemble a coveted New York City backyard garden, with strung garden lights, abundant foliage and colorful patio furniture. A retractable roof allows the bar to be used in all seasons. The venue will be available for private events and hotel programming before its official debut.
