The Bernic, located in New York’s artsy neighborhood Turtle Bay, is set to open September 1. The 22-story, 96-room boutique hotel will offer guests an old-school restaurant, sky lounge, floor-to-ceiling windows, and balconies off of most rooms.
Ian Sklarsky, a blind contour artist, was commissioned to create artwork for the hotel, drawing inspiration from the neighborhood’s iconic artists, including Andy Warhol, and the nearby United Nations building.
Allora, the hotel’s restaurant, will be a “modern reinterpretation” of New York’s old-school restaurants. Signature dishes include house-made pastas, grilled whole fish, and tableside preparations like Steak Diane and Zabaione. The sky lounge will offer classic cocktails and a view of the city’s skyline.
The hotel is only a short walk from the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal, and not far from Times Square and Rockefeller Center.
The Bernic is managed by Marshall Hotels and Resorts.
