Just like in the song, the name on everybody’s lips is gonna be Roxy. Not just any Roxy: The Roxy Tribeca. In fact, this glam boutique hotel already is a celebrity, only under a different name. You may already know her as The Tribeca Grand, a luxury property so stylish that it found devoted fans among celebrities, New Yorkers and the discerning taste-makers at Condé Nast Traveler, both the US and UK editions. Not too surprising, with an address this covetable (just three blocks from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s), retro design and one heck of a weekend brunch.
Now in its second act, this recently revamped icon's got it all – an ambient resto-bar that stocks lox from Russ & Daughters, an Old World bathhouse, an ultra-exclusive cocktail lounge and even the screening room where Condé Nast Traveler chose to host its star-studded party with the Cinema Society. Evoking the famous '90s dance club and incredible '20s movie theater of the same name, The Roxy has an artistic bent, providing a destination for the city's film and music scenesters via its weekly movie series, jazz club by Vito Dieterle and Joseph Schwartz and by turning out even more society-blog fodder than before.
