Upon entering the Charlie Palmer at the Knick, located on the fourth floor of The Knickerbocker Hotel, through the central elevator lobby, guests are immediately immersed into a social oasis. With its scenic views overlooking Times Square, the 122-seat restaurant is designed to encourage social gatherings in an elegant setting.
Lightweight metal mesh curtains and custom-designed Mica interlayer glass screens create a subtle partition among different seating areas maintaining the “see and be seen” quality of the floor. The bar, a centerpiece of the room, is constructed of swirling Frappucino stone while the floor design is of alternating patterned squares of Eramosa, a linear stone reminiscent of a fine menswear fabric. Behind the bar is an intimate wine room constructed from glowing Venetian glass. Tiered ceiling panels around the perimeter of the floor paired with soft atmospheric lighting create a feeling of dramatic ascent.
