Ace Hotel, The Breslin and Stumptown

Sorry for the lack of posting this week, I’m in New York. I’ve been a busy bee working and visiting with friends and family. This morning my sister brought me over to the new Ace Hotel on 29th street in Manhattan. Design group Roman and Williams transformed the space into a hipster Brit infused oasis. Check out the plaid wing chair in the above photo. The back of the chair was upholstered in navy wool decorated with brass tacking. So freakin’ cute.

Attached to the Ace is The Breslin a British style pub run by Peter Cho and the Spotted Pig (my fav place to grab a burger) crew. I walked through pretty quickly but I was struck by the green molding. In the sunlight the wood appears limey in the shadows it becomes a dark olive gloss. Tufted benches, thonet style chairs, and brass accents give the space a cozy feel. Need a little pick me up? Hit Stumptown coffee just off from the hotel’s lobby. I had a latte and croissant—super yum with a nutty quality. Above and below photos from Roman and William’s website.

  1. You can’t open a restaurant in Brooklyn these days unless it has dark woodwork, a Victorian counter, subway tile, Victorian tile floor, converted gas lights, and bearded patrons. Oh and Edison bulbs. Exs: El Almacen, Rye, Dressler, Buttermilk Channel, Saraghina, Northeast Kingdom, VInegar Hill House. All good restaurants, also. Oh, and Katy, if you haven’t been to Erie Basin (curiosity shop) in Red Hook, check out their Tumblr page.


  2. Love these pictures and NYC! I used to work for The Ace Hotel in Seattle long ago and it’s so nice to see all these new locations they now have. I absolutely love that green color in the bar. Will have to check it out in person next time I’m in NYC.
