Following a number of immersive cultural events and the launch of a resort on Yucatán‘s sun-drenched coast, global hospitality group Habitas takes on New York City, expanding its portfolio to urban surrounds for the very first time. Founding trio Oliver Ripley, Kfir Levy and Eduardo Castillo chose a historic firehouse in the city’s NoMad district to open the company’s first clubhouse. Built in 1895, the venue occupies six floors, offering its members an extended living room – albeit a very spacious one with an abundance of cool perks. In fact, Habitas New York boasts an actual living room, furnished with comfy sofas, Persian rugs, and there’s even a Steinway upright studio piano. The space also comes with is a built-in communal wet bar with vintage cabinetry and a kitchen where tea, self-service espresso and endless snacks and fruit are available. Next to offering a home away from home, Habitas New York is a place that’s perfectly suitable to hang out with a friend, listen to music, share a bite, exercise, or simply to have private downtime al for yourself. Indeed, that means there are even more facilities to be found on the premises, including a recording studio, two break-out lounges and creative spaces for solo work or collaboration, a movie room, and a music lounge, and an outdoor courtyard with fire pit and table seating. Additionally, up on the third floor, a homey and multifunctional community events space called The Nest, and a wellness area are situated, and last but nit least, there’s a rooftop space. Do we hear you say food? Habitas New York has chef Jared Dowling, formerly at the helm of gourmet diner The Fat Radish, as its culinary trump card. He cooks up fresh, seasonal dishes and grab-and-go style snacks, and while there’s no set menu, Dowling regularly holds family-style dinners and events where something unique is being served for the occasion.
