Bond Street Noho
All That Jazz
The attractions of Noho and nearby East Village are diverse, though they come together harmoniously. The punk rock glamour made famous by nightclubs like CBGB remains, though new strains of posh restaurants and boutiques add modern melodies that make it one of Manhattan's most exciting destinations. Explore the city's wide range of attractions, easily accessible through a number of nearby subway stations, then retire to this gorgeously decorated apartment, a getaway that features a private back patio – an oasis perfect for unwinding after a day spent at allegro pace.
Our host marches to the beat of his own drum, an architect who's been with the neighbourhood through all its variations. He's had the time to finesse the apartment with personal touches like album covers that pop up in unexpected places and a sound system with speakers hung from the ceiling – just place one of the host’s 45s into the record player and let the world slip away.
The apartment's tone is warm, and the decor manages to convey the space's glamour without tooting its own horn. As soon as you enter you'll notice a baby grand piano just opposite a cosy living space perfect for late night jam sessions. To the left lies the open kitchen – sit at one of the barstools to drink your coffee and say hello to the morning. The generous backyard terrace can be accessed through the kitchen, a private escape from the sounds of the city.
Upstairs hits the high notes with diverse bold colours in the two bedrooms and one bathroom, teal, orange and blue, respectively. The simple, inviting wood theme will lull you to sleep in the master bedroom and the memorabilia from the host's travels lends wonderment to the childrens' bedroom.
Buildings and Food
It's a local secret that nightlife crescendos on the nearby Lower East Side where the food options will crank your taste buds up to 11. Try il Buco for Italian, or Prune for brunch. For a change of pace, grab a cheese plate and a pint at historic McSorley's, then head to the Standard East Village or Scratcher cafe, all just minutes away.
