Dumbo is rapidly transforming into one of the trendiest new neighborhoods in Brooklyn. With its quick expansion, who wouldn’t want to explore and stay? The 1 Hotel serves as a hip destination for visitors and New Yorkers alike. Their message is simple- create an eco friendly hotel with an emphasis on sustainability and locally sourced materials without losing aesthetic value. I mean what more could you want?
Though located near the Brooklyn Bridge, the abundance of plants lining both the exterior and interior make the hotel feel far away from the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn and Manhattan.
The lounge is an open air mid century modern space with a living plant wall. the decor is rustic-chic with deep woods, leather and various fabrics. The cafe and lobby bar are both curated to perfection.
Inspired by nature, their lobby bar serves botanical drinks, while the Neighbors Cafe focuses on delivering artisanal breads, pastries and seasonal salads. Once you're caffeinated, don’t forget to check out the 1 Rooftop, offering a grand view of Manhattan, hello amazing new instagram picture!
