The iconic district of SoHo is where artists' lofts, art galleries, designer shops, and prime examples of cast-iron architecture are all around the corner. The name comes from the simple fact that the neighborhood is "South of Houston Street". ModernHaus SoHo - formerly the James Hotel - honors the neighborhood’s storied past by showcasing numerous artworks on its premises.
A great variety of rooms and suites are on offer, with the Gallery Penthouse taking the crown. Boasting 1,315 square feet (122 square meters) in size, they fit a 12-person dining table so you can invite all your friends for dinner to enjoy the majestic views of Manhattan. Oh, and the bathroom has a self-standing bathtub overlooking the city too!
The art-filled eatery on the second floor that turns into an intimate lounge at night is called Jumpin Jacks. The rooftop pool bar is named after Jimmy. It's on the 18th floor, and the views are just as expected. Panoramic scenery of the Hudson River and the awe-inspiring New York skyline with iconic buildings such as the One World Trade Center or the 56 Leonard Street, also known as the Jenga Tower. Jack and Jimmy then are there to serve you, but there is more. If you are after the culinary experience, Michelin-starred chef George Mendes serves seasonal and locally sourced creative dishes inside a retractable glass pergola.
The brand new ModernHaus SoHo hotel is a hot spot for both locals and visitors where you can have a quick bite, a dinner prepared by a Michelin-star chef, or a cocktail with panoramic views on New York.
