Upon entering the fourth floor of The Knickerbocker Hotel, through the central elevator lobby, guests are immediately immersed into a social oasis consisting of a library, bar, lounge and wine room. Through the library on the left guests enter the restaurant, Charlie Palmer at The Knick. With its scenic views overlooking Times Square, the 122-seat restaurant is designed to encourage social gathering in an elegant setting.
Lightweight metal mesh curtains and custom designed Mica interlayer glass screens create a subtle partition among different seating areas maintaining the “see and be seen” quality of the floor. The bar, a centerpiece of the room, is constructed of swirling Frappucino stone while the floor design is of an alternating patterned squares of Eramosa, a linear stone reminiscent of a fine menswear fabric. Behind the bar is an intimate wine room constructed from glowing venetian glass.Tiered ceiling panels around the perimeter of the floor paired with soft atmospheric lighting create a feeling of dramatic ascent.
