Today, we’re bringing you to New York City, to the cosmopolitan PUBLIC Hotel (@publichotel). This chic-as-can-be, effortlessly cool Lower East Side hotel boasts a warm and inviting ambiance that’s quite difficult to find in the Big Apple. It also happens to be impeccably designed (think concrete, bamboo, mirrors, and flashes of neon to boot). From the floor-to-ceiling windows to trendy common-area hangouts throughout the building, you’ll want to add this hip, 370-room property to your hotel hit list. Conceptualized by boutique hotel pundit and founder of the 1970s haunt Studio 54, Ian Schrager (@ianschrager), the space boasts debonair bars such as Diego — akin to a private members club in London (additionally, equipped with a treasure trove of talented mixologists) — as well as a rooftop hangout that has 360-degree panoramic views of the city (the perfect place to watch the sunset; of course, with a cocktail in hand). As soon as it opens back up, we absolutely recommend staying here. When you do visit, make sure to get an Instagram at one of the hotel’s most notable backdrops, its illuminated escalators.
