Brooklyn’s largest hotel, the iconic New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn, unveils the first chapter of its $43 million renovation and reposition. A dynamic physical redesign combined with authentic Brooklyn experiences will entice guests…starting with their appetites. This month, the hotel celebrates the opening of new chic spaces: The Bar and exclusive M Club Lounge. At The Bar, a thoughtfully curated menu provides a taste of the borough by showcasing top, local food purveyors and businesses – From Brooklyn Roasting Company to Brooklyn Winery, Ovenly and McClure’s pickles, to name a few.
The Bar, located off of the grand entrance, is the hotel’s new social hub featuring a style that embodies local industrial chic reflective of its Downtown Brooklyn neighborhood. Design details convey an urban edge with glass, metal, subway tiles and white marble tops. A focal point of the room is an eye-catching piece of original metal artwork over the fireplace, in which Brooklyn neighborhood names appear. Adjacent to the space, a guarded wooden “gate” unlocks exclusive access to the new M Club Lounge, a signature feature of select Marriott Hotels created specifically for frequent Marriott Rewards members.
Tableside food service at The Bar offers a laid-back vibe, and a menu that celebrates the borough. Highlights include:
BK Bites: The Bar menu includes House Chips served with a grilled onion Brooklyn Lager dip. For hearty appetites, a Sfoglini Trumpet Pasta dish features oyster mushrooms, roasted fennel and blistered tomato sauce. Sfoglini is a Brooklyn-based producer of small batch, freshly extruded pastas. For guests on the go, The Pantry offers a selection from Ovenly bakery such as Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies, Bacon Roasted Peanuts, Maple Thyme Pecans and Cherry Scones. McClure’s Kettle Cooked Chips in Garlic Dill Pickle and Bloody Mary are also available for a flavorful crunch.
Roasts with richness: The hotel’s coffee selection is by DUMBO-based Roastery and Espresso Lab, Brooklyn Roasting Company. Their fair-trade coffees include Iris Espresso – sweet and spicy, bold and balanced; Peru – embodying a warm baked cookie, and sweet / salty caramel pecan pie crust; and Mexican Chiapas – capturing smokiness, peach, sandal wood, pecan and honey.
Imbibe: The beverage menu at The Pantry features Sixpoint Craft Ales based in Red Hook, Brooklyn Brewery’s Brooklyn Lager, and options from Brooklyn Winery such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Stainless Steel Chardonnay. Additional sips include Olde Brooklyn sodas in Coney Island Cream, Greenpoint Grape and Park Slope Ginger Ale.
