THERE'S A NEW hotspot in town. Recently opened 11 Howard, situated on the same block as Opening Ceremony and The Smile, is the city's newest boutique hotel. Opened in early April, the space was designed by interior decorators Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, the team behind the Danish architecture and design studio SPACE Copenhagen, with objects chosen as meticulously as a gallery. Each room contains special touches, like a single art object by ceramicist Katie Yang and beauty products by Grown Alchemist and Glossier.
The hotel also boasts a bar, The Blond, which is filled with navy, velvet sofas, low-lighting and waiters in chic, lace uniforms. A French restaurant, Le CouCou, is slated to open in May.
