The 116-guestroom, theater-themed Olio hotel will open in New York City in May 2020. The property, owned by YYY Atlas 48 and managed by Stonebridge Companies, will feature permanent and rotating art exhibits curated by Tony Award-winning designers.

The upcoming 27-story hotel comes from architecture and design firm Rockwell Group. It will feature several food-and-beverage venues, including the Stage Door Canteen, a bar and lounge that will host pop-up performances

“Olio pays homage to and celebrates the vibrancy of New York City’s theater district,” David Rockwell, the founder of Rockwell Group and a Tony-Award winning designer, said in a statement. “Like Broadway, which is constantly reinventing itself, the hotel’s art program will present new exhibitions every six months showcasing artwork from theater artists of all disciplines.”
