Out/About: THE FLUSHING MEADOWS HOTEL
Munich welcomes ‘The Flushing Meadows’ a new design hotel by three very savvy dudes. Gastronomist Niels Jäger and architects Sascha Arnold and Steffen Werner are no strangers to entertaining, with three other bars in Munich, guests have access to some of the hottest establishments in town.
Building within the top floors of a 1920s post office, they didn’t touch the institutional façade of the building, and managed to maintain the high ceiling in the 3rd floor loft rooms. Generous spaces – all individually developed in collaboration with an actress, musician, pro surfer, DJ and industrial furniture designer – these rooms have personality plus. Ranging from Nordic white minimalist into deep warm sage and dusty blush pinks, they are more like apartments than hotel rooms.
The penthouse studios are more classic in their styling, charcoal blues with highlights of sunshine yellow and hot pink. Carpet and upholstered walls embrace their guest, giving a sense of cosy luxury.
The common spaces are homely with plenty of layering, soft surfaces, Persian rugs, all complimented with honey natural timbers. The partners in this gregarious enterprise are all classics with copper tapware by Vola, Kvadrat fabrics, ClassiCon and Thonet furniture. Come in out of the cold and get cosy the rooftop bar is open till 2am!
