VENUE: Midtown's Bryant Park Hotel

May 21, 2001, 12:00 AM EDT

Architect David Chipperfield has brought a classy new boutique-style hotel to midtown. Facing Bryant Park, the Bryant Park Hotel boasts lots of new event spaces: Cellar Bar (in photo), the hotel's subterranean bar and lounge, is a sleek take on a medieval castle, with golden leather couches, arched ceilings and a DJ booth in the center of the room. The striking, original space (which hosted a recent Homestyle magazine soiree) can hold 150 people. Next, the hotel's in-house restaurant, chef Rick Laakkonen's 135-seat Ilo, opens in a week. What's more: A screening room (for 70) with videoconferencing capabilities is already available, and a board room for 14 opens soon. --Chad Kaydo
