Trump Opens New Glam Spaces in SoHo
Bar d’Eau @ Trump SoHo

Trump SoHo
In time for the sky-rocking summer temperatures that have some groups yearning for refreshing treats, Trump SoHo is debuting its new Bar d’Eau, an outdoor cocktail lounge with a 6,000-sf pool deck and a Bocce Ball court on the 7th floor.

The outdoor lounge is perfect for groups up to 150 to gather for an afternoon networking event while enjoying specialty bites like the lobster salad with slices of orange. Try the Spicy Margarita with lime juice, cilantro and red peppers, and the truffle butter popcorn, both faves among groups. We also like how their Kiwi Caipirinha, a variation of the Brazilian cocktail with Cachaca rum mixed with kiwi fruit, sounds.

“Many say that Bar d’Eau is a fantastic addition to SoHo’s trendy nightlife scene,” says Danielle Gorand, groups senior sales manager. “The signature drinks and light fare are the perfect way to cool down on a hot summer evening…. The indoor and outdoor space creates an open, glamorous and relaxing atmosphere that encourages people to hang out all night.”

Matching the sophistication of Trump SoHo’s floor-to-ceilings windows and 2-story lobby with refined designs in earthy colors, the lounge has an Italian moscaic tile-lined lounge pool with a cascading waterfall and an energizing view of New York’s skyline. It’s also on the same floor of the Spa at Trump SoHo.

“It is an urban retreat ideal for enjoying cocktails and the unique vibe of SoHo,” adds Gorand.

The 46-story hotel has 391 guest rooms and views of the Hudson river. With a 2-story lobby featuring 22-foot ceilings and majestic columns, the hotel also has a 1,700-sf private top-floor venue called SoHi, which is naturally lighted through 15-ft floor-to-ceiling windows. A luxury ballroom yields 4,000 sf of meeting space; total meeting space throughout the property is 12,000 sf.

If we wanted someone to design the ultimate office for Prevue, we’d look for someone with a provenance spanning North America and Europe, who travels as well in Asian aerotropolises as she does in tropical African ports of call. Ivanka Trump, say, who brought her bearing, style and international verve to the new Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto.

The Donald’s daughter is the design visionary behind the 261-room property, slated to open this winter. Her lobby features onyx panels quarried in Milan and Czech crystal artwork. Suites start at 550 sf with marble wet bars, Taormina oak floors and Bellino linens. All have a powder room/fireplace. And Trump’s penchant for period romance is unleashed in the Art Moderne restaurant with 18-ft ceilings. Meeting space tops 46,000 sf.

The signature dining room will be located on the 31st floor with abundant leather details, including a leather-wrapped hostess station and leather seats, along with lots of  smoky glass and herringbone wood flooring in warm gray fumed oak. Look for lots of sensual artwork inspired by vogue fashions of the 1950s and 1960s.

For pre-dinner gatherings, the Destination Lounge will have a bar with a communal dining table and full-height windows with a view to the street on both ends.

Two separate levels are dedicated to meeting space, separated by a grand chrome-finished staircase with filigree etching. The function space will feature black lacquered doors with oversize chrome knockers at the entrance, crystal sconces custom-crafted in the Czech Republic, and 14-foot ceilings adorned with black-lead crystal chandeliers. Meeting space tops 46,000sf.
