A few days ago, a few of my colleagues invited me to the Graduate Hotel, an unexpected enclave located on New York’s Roosevelt Island (22 N Loop Rd, New York, NY 10044).
After breezing through their artsy lobby, decorated with copious books and a giant sized b-boy holding up a light bulb chandelier, you are transported up to their rooftop aka the Panorama Room, which has arguably one of the best views in New York City.
I walked in, slack jawed, befuddled that I had never heard of or been to this place before–even after living in New York for almost two decades.
It’s definitely a sight to behold. The drinks are tasty, and food is yummy (I’d recommend the truffle fries and the caviar nachos). The Graduate Hotel is Fashion Bomb Approved!
I took an Uber there from Brooklyn, but you can hop on a ferry to get there yourself. Find directions here.
I actually spoke to the owner, who said that the hotel is also great for staycations, as each spacious room has a dope view of the city. If you need an ‘island’ retreat, this one might fit the bill. And it’s right in your backyard.
Be sure to stop by! And tell them I sent you:)
For the evening, I wore an Arianne Elmy shirt and pants. Get my shirt at FashionBombDailyShop.com.
