N. Carlos J’s works featured at LIC’s Z Hotel

Savanna Rooftop opened as a new open-air rooftop lounge in Long Island City in the New York City borough of Queens with views of the Manhattan skyline.  From the creators of the rooftop bar Ophelia, Merchants Hospitality, this rooftop venue is located at the top of the Z Hotel in Long Island City.

Drawing inspiration from the savannas of Africa, Savanna Rooftop is perched on the 12th floor with 180-degree skyline views of Manhattan, as well as views across Long Island. The space has acacia and eucalyptus wood furniture mixed with grasses, trees and accent pieces in green and blue. 

A highlight of the décor is a series of brightly colored murals created by Brooklyn artist N. Carlos J.  The murals depict a paradise.
