The Library features original wood moldings that have been restored to interpret a traditional English Gentleman’s Club with 20 foot ceilings of exposed, reclaimed wood beams, and Douglas Fir wood columns. The Library features the enormous Brancusi-inspired custom limestone fireplace with a roaring fire and blackened steel hearth. Above the fireplace hangs a 24 karat gold-leaf painting by Brooklyn artisans of Callidus Guild, along with four photographs by Dutch photographer Hendrik Kerstens. An illuminated, amber-backed bar display and custom 17th century Venetian style windows made of glass rondelles are fitted with custom bronze hardware and 100% silk drapery, imported Christian Liaigre standing lamps, an Alice in Wonderland inspired 20 foot Chesterfield sofa, custom white slip-covered sofas with silk pillows, silver silk upholstered slipper chairs, and armchairs upholstered in long-haired Mongolian lamb’s wool. Reminiscent of the 1950’s American and European coffee houses, The Library features La Colombe Coffees and transforms by night into a sexy lounge with cocktails, wine, and beer offerings. The Library is 1500 square feet with dimensions of 58X26. Built into the room, a sound system with approved music offerings is available through the hotel.
