Two Roads Hospitality assumed management of Park South Hotel in New York City as part of its Joie de Vivre Hotels brand. The 131-key boutique hotel is situated in the city’s NoMad neighborhood on 28th Street between Park Avenue South and Lexington Avenue, steps from Madison Square Park and various cultural attractions.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Park South Hotel into our beloved Joie de Vivre collection as the brand’s second New York City property, following last year's highly anticipated opening of Hotel 50 Bowery in Chinatown,” Jamie Sabatier, CEO of Two Roads Hospitality, said in a statement. “Nestled within Manhattan’s trendy NoMad neighborhood, Park South Hotel is superbly located, giving our guests the opportunity to explore and discover another desirable, energized area of the city.”
The property completed a $20-million renovation in late 2015, unveiling updated, contemporary guestrooms and suites designed by Lisa Knight of ABI Interior Design. CCS Architecture also completely redesigned the hotel's restaurants and public areas, including the hotel’s lobby. In partnership with New York City epicurean bookstore Kitchen Arts & Letters, Park South Hotel will also provide a library with a collection of limited edition and rare books for guests, visitors and culinary enthusiasts to enjoy.
Park South Hotel offers four food-and-beverage concepts, led by husband-and-wife restauranteurs Tim and Nancy Cushman. For casual all-day dining, Covina offers a new American menu with influences from James Beard Award-winning chef Tim Cushman’s early career in California. Upscale Japanese restaurant o ya offers sushi and small bites, served a la carte and across an omakase-style menu. Also located on property is Covina Coffee Bar, a neighborhood coffee spot offering select Counter Culture brews and on-the-go breakfast items, while seasonal rooftop bar Roof at Park South provides unobstructed views of the New York City skyline along with impeccable cocktails.
Park South Hotel specializes in customized meetings and events with unique indoor and outdoor spaces. The private dining room, which can seat up to 40 guests, offers menus from both Covina and o ya. Eight stories up, Roof at Park South welcomes guests for both private and semi-private cocktail-style gatherings for up to 150 guests.
