US: Sam Gelin has opened the Made Hotel, a boutique property in New York’s NoMad neighbourhood.
Located at Broadway and 29th Street, the hotel describes itself as “an inclusive urban hub, cosmopolitan and dynamic, fuelled by New York’s sensory cacophony, yet laser focused on its place as a warm retreat from the busy streets.”
The hotel’s 109 guest rooms include features such as bronze shelving, hand-woven fabrics, polished stainless-steel mirrors and hand-carved benches.
The hotel’s food and beverage program is headed by Greg Proechel, formerly of French restaurant Le Turtle, and ex-Major Food Group executive Charles Seich. Proechel and Seich’s restaurant is called Ferris, serving cuisine with a “balance between rustic and refined.”
The 18th floor rooftop bar is called Good Behavior, and there is also a coffee shop called Paper.
Gelin heads Craft Hospitality, which produces events such as the NYC Craft Distillers Fest and the Chicago Wine Fest.
