The Lower East Side is about to get a whole lot livelier: Tao Group Hospitality is gearing up to open five new venues in the area, ranging from restaurants to bars to full nightclubs.
Open in late October or November, the spots will be located in the future Moxy Hotel, Page Six reported Monday. They include the modern Japanese restaurant Sake No Hana, the rooftop Highlight Room lounge, the Silver Lining piano lounge, the Fix lobby cafe/bar and Loosie’s nightclub.
“Downtown New York has always been known as a hub for entertainment and an incubator for creatives,” Tao Group CEO Noah Tepperberg told Page Six. “Our new offering stays true to that reputation by bringing together five unique restaurants and nightlife spots under one roof.”
Tao Group, which is behind a number of celebrity hotspots including Tao, Marquee and Cathedral, will bring some of the high energy it is known for to its new ventures. A source told Page Six that Loosie’s in particular will have a vibe “reminiscent of clubs from the 90s and early 2000s.” The Silver Lining, meanwhile, will be an intimate cocktail lounge serving creative drinks that you can sip along long velvet banquettes. And you can take the elevator from the 16th floor to the Highlight Room, which will give you a breathtaking view of the New York skyline.
In terms of food, Sake No Hana will serve izakaya dishes in a spectacular space. And the Fix will offer all-day food as well as coffee and drinks, which you might decide to enjoy on Ms. Pac-Man’s table.
The Moxy Lower East Side, which will be located at the intersection of Broome and Bowery streets, is currently under construction and will accommodate 303 rooms when it opens. While many guests will likely want to explore all that New York has to offer, they also won’t have to go too far to experience the city’s food, drink, and nightlife.
A night out followed by a simple elevator ride to your bed? It doesn’t get much better than that.
