Style

All that jazz

Setting

Tribeca towards SoHo

The Roxy Hotel is here to entertain. Music is its lifeblood, and at the heart of it all is the Django, the hotel’s cult subterranean jazz club. Upstairs, soulful beats fill the soaring atrium above the iconic brick-backed lounge stage. There’s a cinema screening retro films too, along with one of the city’s favourite coffee merchants and a Paul Sevigny nightclub serving expertly crafted cocktails. It’s no wonder the creative set flock here like it’s New York’s living room. One thing’s for sure: you won’t be lonely (especially with a pet goldfish for the duration of your stay).

Also

The 99-seat Roxy Cinema plays independent, foreign and classic films throughout the week, and there’s a concession stand with retro popcorn maker outside. At weekends it’s free for hotel guests; the kids’ film is at 12 noon and then there’s a New York classic shown at 4.30pm. To zip along the cobbles of Tribeca and beyond, just ask to borrow a bike from the fine-looking fleet of Priority Classic bicycles. They’re available in spring, summer and autumn (and trust us, if you value having feeling in your fingertips, you wouldn’t want one in winter). If you're arriving with a four-legged friend (the hotel is extremely accommodating), take a short walkies for free access to the dog park at sister hotel Soho Grand, where pups lap up the fire-hydrant water stations and, we assume, admire the Rebecca Cole-designed surroundings.

At the hotel

Nightclub, cinema, coffee shop, cocktail lounge, 24-hour fitness room, laundry service, free WiFi throughout. In season, bikes are free to hire. A pet goldfish can be delivered to any room. In rooms: Samsung Smart TV and DVD player, Bluetooth-enabled Tivoli radio, Smeg fridge and gourmet minibar, Liquor Cabinet-curated cocktail-making, tea- and coffee-making facilities, free bottled water and C.O. Bigelow bath products. TEAC record players with a selection of vinyl and Marshall speakers are in Studio rooms, Suites and the Penthouse. Suites also have Nespresso coffee machines.

Our favourite rooms

It’s worth plumping for a Studio or Suite for the lovingly picked vinyl, record player and Marshall speaker, and the extra space you’ll need for all that booty-shaking. The marble-walled Penthouse is the entertainer’s domain, with a monster 60-inch TV, and panoramic views of downtown Manhattan from the living room, dining room, and private roof terrace.

Spa

There’s no spa on-site, but the Roxy has a partnership with Aire Ancient Baths, a few minutes’ walk away on Franklin Street. There, relax away from the city that rarely lets you; perhaps with the signature two-hour escape, which includes 90 minutes of ‘oohs and aahs’ in swelteringly hot and soothingly cool thermal pools and a recuperating rest on heated marble stones. For a pre jazz spruce up, pay a visit to Blackstones hair salon, which is handily in the hotel itself.

Packing tips

Pack your dancing shoes and a second pair, just in case the first gets worn out. No need for end-of-night flats, as a flop into bed is only ever a lift (OK, elevator, if you must) ride away. If you’re in a room with turntables, bring your favourite LP to rock out to.

Also

All communal spaces and guest rooms are accessible by ramp or elevator. There are 11 wheelchair-user-friendly King Superior rooms, with bathroom handrails and shower chairs provided.

Pet‐friendly

The Roxy is so pet-friendly that they’ll even lend you one – ask in advance and a goldfish will be waiting in your room. If you prefer to BYO, the hotel provides bedding, food, bowls and organic treats from Bocce’s Bakery. See more pet-friendly hotels in New York.

Children

All ages are welcome. Cots can be added to all rooms and potties, highchairs and toys are provided. Babysitting is $30 an hour for one or $35 an hour for two children, for a minimum of four hours (must be booked in advance).

Food and Drink

Top Table

You’re always within earshot, but snaffle the best view of the band with a front-row table in the lounge.

Dress Code

Up-dos and sequin-spangled flapper fashion for ladies; snug slacks and braces for gents, with wingtips, naturally.

Hotel restaurant

Take your pick of the low-slung leather chairs and deep-red velvet booths in the sociable Roxy Bar, which opens into the cavernous atrium and brick-walled live-music lounge. Head chef Lucia Piscopo is the mastermind behind the American favourites at lunch and dinner, including brick chicken, lobster mac and cheese, and house-cut strip steak with Yukon gold potatoes. At weekends, brunch takes centre stage with a buffet of pancakes, waffles and much else besides, plus bottomless cocktails for a $20 supplement. For late-night munchies fill up at the Django; the menu features finger-licking light bites, satisfying sandwiches, and a creamy New York cheesecake. There's something fishy going on at the Oyster Bar which has vintage shell sconces and scaled walls. Fresh fare is delivered daily from local fishermen in nearby waters. Pull up a bar stool at happy hour and tuck into $1 oysters (or whatever else is on ice that day) while enjoying Beatrice cocktail and live music.  

Hotel bar

A night out is a night in at the Roxy. Kick off with cocktails, either out in the lounge or behind paned glass in the intimate bar area itself. House offerings include the signature Roxy (a zingy blend of rum, sour cherry, cinnamon, lime and pineapple) and the Gibson (gin, vermouth and beetroot-pickled onion) among others in an all-star cast. Downstairs, other-worldly jazz club the Django beckons, an engrossing throwback to the swinging sixties in a subterranean boîte. Paint peels from the vaulted ceiling, vintage lamps provide a brassy glow, and each night a revered line-up of artists set those beats that you understand without knowing quite how. Next up, a late, late show at Paul’s Cocktail Lounge, hung with tropical art by New York’s John Smith – the Chloe Sevigny-designed staff uniforms secure its street cred. When the disco ball rises, you know the party’s just getting started.

Planes

LaGuardia and Newark airports are both less than half an hour away if the traffic gods are smiling. Getting to the big daddy, JFK, takes roughly 45 minutes and costs around $70 in a cab, or the hotel can arrange transfers, on request. The approach is filled with iconic sights, whichever direction you arrive from.

Trains

The closest subway stations are Canal Street and Franklin Street, both are one block or a two-minute walk away. They have routes up and down the West Side, but several other lines run from stations within a 10-minute walk. Proper choo-choos depart Grand Central Terminal (a 20-minute subway ride away) for upstate New York and Connecticut, or Penn Station (10 minutes away by subway) for New Jersey, Long Island and other places far and wide.

Automobiles

There are options aplenty for hiring cars in the city, but you usually get a better deal picking up at the airport. A 24-hour stay in the car park opposite the hotel costs $55 for normal-sized cars or $65 for SUVs.

Worth getting out of bed for

Ramble along the cobblestone streets of Tribeca (a portmanteau of Triangle Below Canal Street), a storied neighbourhood laden with industrial-era warehouses converted into A-list loft apartments and countless culinary temptations; the fire station out of Ghostbusters is here too. The Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial is 13 blocks or 15 minutes’ walk away. In the other direction, there are designer collections at Opening Ceremony and Totokaelo, and Stadium Goods is a slam dunk for fans of limited-edition trainers. In nearby SoHo there’s a who’s who of fashion houses and high-street brands; ask at the hotel for a full list of recommendations. For culture that’s more boutique than blockbuster, try The Drawing Center and Catherine Ahnell art galleries in SoHo, or thought-provoking ‘object journalism’ at Mmuseumm (not a typo, promise).

Local restaurants

The miso-glazed black cod at Nobu on Hudson Street is much-imitated but never bettered, and the rest of the menu ensures this iconic modern Japanese continues to live up to the legend. The tiny Atera on Worth Street presents some of the finest fine dining in a meticulously prepared tasting menu packed with creative flavours. One of the city’s most-lauded burgers is at time-honoured The Odeon (145 W Broadway), although another red-meat institution, Minetta Tavern (113 Macdougal Street), is a worthy competitor for bloodthirsty diners willing to go slightly further afield. 

Local cafés

In the hotel itself, Jack’s Stir Brew Coffee serves up a strong cup of Caribbean joe and vegan pastries on-the-go. For brunch, try Two Hands on Mott Street, an Aussie-owned café and restaurant with a loyal community following for its toast topped with chilli-laced smashed avocado or beet-cured salmon. Maison Kayser on Harrison Street is an authentic boulangerie with artisan breads and sumptuous pastries. Tribeca lunch favourite Café Clementine crafts hearty, no-fuss sandwiches and salads, and sweeteners including soft-baked cookies with molasses.

Local bars

Cocktails are king in this part of town. B Flat on Church Street has live music and expert mixology in a Tokyo-inspired underground den. Smith & Mills, in a converted carriage house on N Moore Street, has a candlelit Thirties feel and tufted banquette seating. Pull up stools and sip down beautiful bitter cocktails at Weather Up on Duane Street, where subway tiles line the walls and half-shell oysters line many a stomach. For a top tipple in refined surroundings, try the Brandy Library (also on N Moore Street) and its range of hard-to-find spirits paired with upscale small plates.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this boutique hotel in New York and unpacked their saxophones and songbooks, a full account of their city break in the Big Apple will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside the Roxy Hotel…

If New York was a hotel, it would probably be something like the Roxy. It would have the relentless rhythm of people coming and going, the air would be filled with excited chatter, and it might even have a towering open atrium, so that visitors have something to gawp up at. For sure it would pride itself on its ‘cwoffee’, never be short of a good burger, and have a bang-on-trend hair salon to keep ahead of the crowd. It’d be at night though that it really came alive, with cocktails flowing and live music coursing through its veins. Alright, alright, there are at least two problems with this comparison: firstly, New York is the city that never sleeps; the Roxy, with inviting mid-century designed rooms and all that Egyptian cotton, is hardly deserving of that moniker. Secondly, there’s no analogy for the whole goldfish thing.
