Hotel 50 Bowery, the first Joie de Vivre property in New York, captures the spirit of change on one of New York’s oldest streets.

Past meets the present in the reclaimed wood reception desk set resting on contemporary poured concrete, while a Corten steel screen to the rear evokes a Chinese landscape painting.

Atmospheric hallways are punctuated by subtle lanterns and large, bold works of art from Beijing-based graffiti artist, Dake Wong. Bold red, symbolizing joy and good fortune, marks the entrance to each guestroom.

Light filled guest room design features industrial materials, original artwork, and signature hand-plastered headboards, with a hint of Asian chinaware in the blue and white color scheme.

The Crown, a rooftop bar and lounge occupies the 21st floor where the design continues the urban eclecticism taking advantage of the expansive views of Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn across the water.
