Earlier this week Mondrian Park Avenue opened it’s doors at 444 Park Avenue South bringing another element of luxury to this buzzy Nomad neighborhood.

Managed by Journal Hotels and licensed from sbe, Mondrian Park Avenue will be a cultural hotspot, providing a lively dining and nightlife destination, and serving as a center for vibrant art. The hotel’s convenient location near Madison Square Park, the Flatiron District and the Empire State Building will also connect guests with some of the best cultural experiences New York City has to offer.

“We’re thrilled to open our doors to guests and have them discover the unique lifestyle experience within. We look forward to becoming a pivotal hub for culture within the neighborhood, while providing guests with a stylish and comfortable place to relax and dine,” said David Moinian, owner of Mondrian Park Avenue.

Back in 1918, the property was originally constructed as a 15-story office building. During the hotel conversion five floors were added, elevating the property to a 20-story hotel. Initially conceived as an SLS designed by Philippe Starck, Mondrian Park Avenue is a vibrant character, much like its namesake Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian.

On-property amenities include Cleo restaurant, sbe’s award-winning culinary concept helmed by Chef Danny Elmaleh that showcases a modern twist on the ingredients and cultures of the Eastern and Southern Mediterranean region. Stephen Brandman, co-owner and CEO of Journal Hotels, has collaborated with Butter Group’s Richie Akiva of 1Oak and Butter on two nightlife venues. First up is Fifteen Stories, a rooftop lounge and adjacent outdoor terrace featuring music and other activity nightly, serving drinks and light bites from a central bar. Fifteen Stories is open all day with food and drink offerings available throughout the day. Yours Truly, the second venue, will serve as a subterranean nightclub catering to the who’s who of New York City with a secretive entrance.
