Chelsea, New York
The designers at Dream Downtown had fun when they transformed this 1960s’ National Maritime Union building, opposite Chelsea Market and near the Meatpacking District. In a nod to its past, the gritty steel shell features super-sized portholes, while inside it takes you around the globe. You visit Mexico in the tequila barrel wall and upscale menu of Bodega Negra. You visit ‘Cool Britannia’ in the underground Electric Room, with its Banksy-inspired graffiti. And you return to NYC with the penthouse parties at PHD Rooftop Lounge and the lobby’s huge Stars and Stripes flag made from beer cans, which sits below the glass-bottomed pool.
