At right, that's Smyth, the tony Thompson Hotel at the corner of West Broadway and Chambers that opened its doors a few months back. What's not yet open: neither the ground-floor restaurant space nor the subterranean basement lounge—dubbed Cellar Lounge—that aims to be Smyth's answer to hotelier Jason Pomeranc's other in-hotel hotspots A60 (at 60 Thompson) and Above Allen (at Thompson LES).
We dropped by for a tour of the unfinished Smyth spaces earlier this week, and return with the following intel. First, the ground-floor restaurant—the latest Jour et Nuit outpost from Frederick's own Frederick Lesort—won't make its spring open date; think summer instead. Second, the basement lounge is still in the wires-and-pipes stage—space designer AvroKO hasn't even begun working their magic here. In fact, before the opening, they're going to have to tear down a wall near the entrance to build a staircase down to the space. Result: time your jockeying for the private membership card for late summer or, dare we say, fall.
