The Gramercy Terrace, an original and unique indoor and outdoor space, with a retractable roof 16 stories above the city, is akin to a private salon or drawing room offering personal comfort and the intimacy of a private home. This Gramercy Terrace combines all the charm of London's private gentlemen's clubs and the Bohemian bustle of a Viennese coffee house. It recalls the celebrated roof top garden life popularized at the turn of the century in New York City at such places as Ziegfeld's Club at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Stanford Whites roof top garden at the original Madison Square Garden, the Astor Hotel in Times Square and Conde Nast's famous parties on his extravagant roof top penthouse-with an edgy new twist. Using artist Julian Schnabel's vivid color palette of dazzling Renaissance colors, the custom furniture and fittings weave through the space in a breathtaking series of seamless indoor and outdoor areas. It includes a ceiling light installation that evokes the notion of a chandelier in the movie Blade Runner. Striking a balance between after-hours chic and the classic style of private membership clubs, the Gramercy Terrace is nothing less than a country club in the city... more

Unique to the interior spaces is the rare display of 20th century masterpieces from renowned artists Andy Warhol and Damien Hirst.
