Stonehill & Taylor Architects, Meyer Davis Studio reimagine New York’s Paramount
The hotel’s re-imagination marks the unveiling of a new restaurant and bar, Paramount Bar & Grill, as well as Corso, an Italian style coffee bar located in the lobby area near the hotel entrance, a new retail concept, Free & The Brave, and contemporary event spaces.
Paramount Bar & Grill, in partnership with LDV Hospitality, is a new American restaurant offering comfort food. Executive Chef Jason Kallert is at the helm. The 2,500 square foot restaurant encompasses an 86-seat dining room and a 20-seat full-service bar and lounge. Inspired by an abstract interpretation of New York Theater, dramatic lighting brings the restaurant to life, with accents of theater-inspired fabrics and large-format photography of architecture throughout the space. Also featured are raised banquettes with a view of the restaurant.
Corso is an Italian style coffee bar with a New York ambiance. Design elements take inspiration from the classic Italian coffee bar, reinterpreting the space into a modern, clean design, complete with marble counters, vintage espresso machines and an eclectic mix of art.
Free & The Brave is a boutique inspired by modern American design. The curated collection of womens’ and mens’ fashion, accessories, beauty, home, kids, and travel products are all American inspired, designed, or made. The boutique also offers one-of-a-kind pieces and handmade items, many of which are created in New York.
Paramount’s four mezzanine-level event spaces – Think Tank, Brain Trust, Inner Circle and Ivory Tower – were branded Paramount Space, with rooms offering flexibility of furniture, natural light, and technology support complete with audio-visual capabilities and all-day butler services. The mezzanine and four adjoining rooms can be combined to accommodate up to 200 people, offering a backdrop for larger meetings and events.
Meanwhile, an all-star team has been assembled to resurrect the 1920’s Billy Rose Diamond Horseshoe. It will open in fall 2013.
