Just A Dream. Downtown

Posted in Hot Places on July 26, 2011 by Bright Lights

For those of you who are looking to beat the heat, you may want to avoid the Dream Downtown’s rooftop pool bar.  For I am afraid the scene is red hot.  On June 13th, Vikram Chatwal unveiled his latest creation, Dream Downtown.

While New York’s elite are probably summering in the Hamptons, Dream Downtown has slowly but surely been building some well deserved buzz.  The pool area has the feel of an oasis with plush landscaping and also has a separate sandy beach area for those who like to feel the sand between their toes.

In addition, the pool has portholes on its floor which see straight through to the lobby below.

The Dream’s modern build-out and interesting decor create an ambiance that is reminiscent of South Beach.  Spend 5 minutes in this hotel, and you will start to wish you were better looking.  Once you get past the self loathing, you will realize that there is no better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  The pool is packed with beautiful people, and the bar menu serves plenty of cool and interesting drinks.  Don’t let the summer end without taking the plunge.  Dream Downtown is located at 335 West 16th Street, New York, NY.

Bright Lights, Big City.
