This past Friday, a creative crowd packed into The Standard, High Line to celebrate artist Romon Yang’s (a.k.a. ROSTARR) mural commission for the rooftop at Le Bain. Christos Katsiaouni was at the hotel to capture the scene.
Ironic? Yes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make your way down the road to the Dogfish brewpub for some suds, or head in the opposite direction to the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery for some Bocce, and brews to bring back to the inn. Thoughtfully designed by Studio Tack in Brooklyn, the Dogfish Inn is a 16 room escape on the quiet coast of Delaware, home to some of the cleanest beaches in America. Rates start at $250 / night

If you’re looking for a quick escape from New York, consider the sleepy surf town of Bathsheba, Barbados. Located on the lush east coast of the island, far, far away from the sunburnt tourist herds (at least a 30 minute drive), it’s a chill persons paradise. There are empty beaches with natural baths and grottos, a world class surf break, strong rum punches, and delicious plates of marlin. On our recent visit, we stayed at the Sea-U Guest House, a relaxing bed and breakfast located in a Bajan style plantation house replete with a hammock jungle, soothing coastal breezes, and an honor bar. Once you’re there for 24 hours, you’ll forget your troubles and never want to return home.
Goldfield, Nevada is one of those eery towns that exploded during the gold boom of the early 1900s, only to be deserted almost completely in a matter of years. Millions of dollars worth of gold were produced in Goldfield between 1903 and 1940, and the town turned into an entertainment hub: legendary boxing championships took place there, and the Northern Saloon in town was said to be so long, 80 bartenders were needed to serve the length of it.
It only made sense then to build an opulent and oversized hotel to accommodate the newfound riches in town. This was the Goldfield hotel. When it was built in 1908, it was advertised as one of the most spectacular hotels in Nevada, with a lobby adorned with black leather upholstery, gold-leafed ceilings and mahogany trimmings, and 150 rooms outfitted with the best furnishings available.
