New York’s iconic The Knickerbocker Hotel opens February 2015
Enviably situated on the corners of 42nd Street and Broadway overlooking the heart of Times Square, The Knickerbocker Hotel will open its doors February 12, 2015, revealing an elegant, urban 330-room hotel that pulses with the energy of contemporary fashion, flavours, fitness and finesse.
Originally opened in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, The Knickerbocker has witnessed and influenced more than a century of New York history. As the rumoured birthplace of the original martini and the first hotel to offer a multidimensional lifestyle experience, the legendary Beaux Arts landmark will infuse its storied past with the rhythm of modern New York.
The Knickerbocker has partnered with one of the US’s most recognized master chefs, Charlie Palmer, to debut several exceptional dining venues and ensure a sophisticated level of taste throughout the hotel. Guests will have the option to dine at Charlie Palmer at The Knick – the hotel’s full service restaurant and bar; JAKES @ The Knick – a coffeehouse and artisanal café; and St. Cloud – the hotel’s 7,500sq ft. rooftop bar, complete with a signature cigar lounge from celebrated tobacconist Nat Sherman. In addition, priority access and preferential treatment will also be offered to hotel guests at Palmer’s flagship restaurant Aureole, located just across the street from The Knickerbocker
