Shaker/Japanese Simplicity at Ace Hotel’s New Sister City on the Bowery

May 10, 2019

One of all-time favorites design/hospitality enterprises, Atelier Ace (the team behind the Ace group of hotels), recently launched its newest “sub-label,” called Sister City in NYC.  The 12-story hotel recently opened on the Bowery, a formerly gritty stretch in East Village that was a sometimes-dangerous no-man’s land (speaking from experience). Here’s a look.
