About The Blond
So it’s no surprise that The Blond, inside Rosen’s newly opened 11 Howard hotel, has played host to dozens of parties since opening in March. Opening weekend alone saw three shindigs, the first on Thursday night, with his own friends and family in attendance—Tom Sachs, Rachel Feinstein, Wendi Murdoch, i.e. the “older, glamorous New York power-players” according to the public relations team—the second on Friday with his son, Charlie, co-hosting a party with models Martha Hunt and Jasmine Tookes; then Saturday brought a fête from hotspot gatekeepers, Angelo Bianchi and Julio Montero.
Things haven’t really slowed down since then, and the parties are as frequent as they are different. His wife, Samantha Boardman celebrated a handbag collaboration with Sarah Beydoun there, and Jimmy Choo hosted a dinner. Bob Colacello threw his birthday party there, with Calvin Klein, Rudy Giuliani, and Mary-Kate Olsen in attendance. The Film Society’s Andrew Saffir selected it as the after party venue following a screening of Miles Ahead, with Don Cheadle and Ewan McGregor. Most recently, Tyga took over in honor of his collaboration with Marcelo Burlon for Saks Fifth Avenue.
Rosen’s pull is stronger than the space itself, which is all velvet banquettes, smoky mirrors and blond wood, designed by Anda Andrei Design and Space Copenhagen. Of course, this provides a clean backdrop for—what else!—the art. Works from Dan Attoe, Nobuyoshi Araki, Charming Baker, and Jacco Olivier line the walls, though if you’re coming to peruse them, you’d be better off during the day, when you can also sample the food by Stephen Starr and Chef Daniel Rose.
At night, downtown DJs including Mike Nouveau and Franco V play thumping dance and hip-hop music, and the dance floor becomes the main attraction.
