Call To Book
In the heart of New York City, edging the bright lights of Broadway and the calm of Bryant Park, a legendary New York City landmark is reborn as the first luxury hotel in Times Square. Opened in February 2015, The Knickerbocker is a haven of refined elegance; a treasured monument among all Manhattan hotels created by John Jacob Astor IV in 1906, now reimagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary. Mere blocks from Fifth Avenue, The Metropolitan Opera, Rockefeller Plaza, MoMA and Central Park, here is where famed Italian tenor Enrico Caruso and renowned American playwright George M. Cohan made their homes, and where names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered in what was once known as The 42nd Street Country Club
Award-winning chef, Michelin-starred restaurateur, hotelier and author, Charlie Palmer is renowned for his farm-fresh Progressive American cuisine. Spearheading The Knickerbockers entire culinary program, he has created the hotels signature Honest American Cuisine inspired by the same principles. With over three decades of experience, he is regarded as one of the first adapters of the farm over factory food philosophy, an approach that has earned the success of his hospitality group empire which currently includes restaurants, boutique hotels, and food-forward wine shops throughout the U.S. Built in 1906 by John Jacob Astor IV, scion of one of Americas wealthiest families, The Knickerbocker played host to the worlds biggest names in entertainment, politics, culture and high society in the earliest years of the 20th century. Its iconic Beaux-Arts design, glamorous European luxury, and welcoming American hospitality made it the place to be for glitterati and dignitaries, while its legendary barroom became known as The 42nd Street Country Club.
