ModernHaus SoHo is a new forward-thinking luxury hotel in New York’s stylish SoHo neighborhood. The 114-room property features an extensive modern and contemporary art collection with pieces from some of the world’s foremost names, 11,000 square feet of outdoor space for visitors, a signature restaurant from Michelin-starred chef George Mendes, and an open- air rooftop pool deck. The hotel also represents the debut of the first-ever hospitality brand from Thor Equities Group, a global leader in urban real estate development, leasing, and management.
Anchoring SoHo's southwest corner, ModernHaus SoHo is surrounded by world-class shopping, art galleries, dining, and cultural events. Everything the sophisticated urban traveler seeks is steps away, including access to public transportation and many of the city’s must-see attractions. A National Historic Landmark, SoHo is best known as the source of America’s most important works in fine art, architecture, fashion, literature, and culinary arts.
Drawing heavily from the art heritage of the surrounding neighborhood, ModernHaus SoHo boasts a one-of-a-kind art collection including dozens of paintings and sculptures from the likes of Alexander Calder, Hans Hartung, George Condo, Harland Miller, Jean Dubuffet, Hans Hofmann, Nicolas Party, and Kaws. Jack J. Sitt, Director of Thor Equities Group, oversaw the curation of pieces – taken from his personal collection – ensuring the selection conveyed a distinct artistic perspective on SoHo’s trademark modernism.
ModernHaus SoHo offers more outdoor space per-room than any other hotel in downtown Manhattan, and it provides a rare urban resort experience for visitors in the middle of the bustling city. In an unprecedented time for travelers prioritizing space, guests can enjoy multiple lush, overgrown lounge setups throughout the property, outdoor bar and event space, as well as a rooftop pool deck. Designed in the style of a greenhouse, the hotel’s restaurant, Veranda, provides a fully retractable roof, one of the city’s few and ideal for open-air dining.
Inspired by the Bauhaus art movement of the beginning of the 20th century, ModernHaus SoHo’s design focuses on clean lines, geometric harmony, and large windows. Stylist and interior design consultant Melissa Bowers worked hand in hand with Sitt on the property’s design layout, focusing on a minimalist perspective that allows the beauty and energy of the surrounding urban environment to take a prominent role, while showcasing luxurious amenities, rooms, and public spaces.
Each of ModernHaus SoHo’s 114 guest rooms feature panoramic city views with an abundance of natural light, accented by reclaimed wood floors and vibrant artwork. A total of 10 different room categories are available, including 5 suites, for all guest types. The hotel’s crowning jewel is its Gallery Penthouse, located on the 16th floor with postcard-worthy views of Manhattan Bridge and the Freedom Tower. Featuring a separate living room and dining room complete with 12-person table, the 1,300 square foot open floor plan is perfect for meetings or celebrations of any occasion.
Renowned chef George Mendes, whose Portuguese restaurant Aldea in the city’s Flatiron District earned him a Michelin star, has partnered with hospitality veteran David Rabin to open Veranda, a convivial new restaurant. Mendes taps his Iberian roots for a globally inspired American menu of dishes from a central hearth – ranging from house-baked sourdough loaves and seafood-topped flatbreads, to Mediterranean shrimp in Goan coconut curry, chicken rice with chorizo and peas, and charcoal-grilled chicken in piri piri marinade.
Taking design cues from Philip Johnson's Glass House and the atrium cafés of Europe, Veranda treats diners to a greenhouse-like glass enclosure with retractable roof, dotted with walnut and travertine tables contrasted against topiaries and rosemary herb plantings for an atmosphere that’s simultaneously both outdoors and in. The restaurant also includes two separate bars for casual drinks or pre-dinner cocktails, with one boasting a spacious terrace and the other with its own entrance on 6th Avenue, aptly named The Back Bar.
Jimmy, a staple of lower Manhattan nightlife, resumes operations on the building’s rooftop. Set 18 stories high, the space received a tasteful refresh, channeling Picasso’s Blue Period, while retaining its core layout and design sensibility that the city’s social set has come to cherish. Created and curated by David Rabin, the atmosphere is intimate and refined, with lingham wood floors, swank modular furniture, rust tile walls, and a working fireplace.
The rooftop scene is a destination unto itself, surrounded by 14’ windows with panoramic views of Midtown, Wall Street, the Hudson River, and the bridges spanning the East River. Unlike typical rooftop bars, Jimmy will retain its status as a year-round destination. In colder months, guests gravitate towards the inside conversation pit – a freeform lounge area with blue velvet leather seating, pendant lighting, and sculptural stools. In warmer weather, the experience spills onto the roof deck, where guests can enjoy chaise lounges and unparalleled city views.
Jimmy offers seasonally-inspired cocktails like the Sazerac Tonic, Blackberry & Basil Old Fashioned, Lavender Lemonade, and Strawberry Moscow Mule, along with frozen options like the Boozy Watermelon Frosé. For snacks, options such as salt cod croquettes, cheeseburger sliders, and vadouvan-spiced popcorn are available through the early evening into night.
