This week, LONNY wrote about the new J.K. Place Hotel. Believe the hype. It’s gorgeous.
Months ago, one of my vendors told me I had to see the chartreuse DEDAR fabric architect/interior designer Michele Bonan used in the cafe. I finally had a chance to see it when my friend Erica and I went to meet a colleague of hers and his wife who were staying at the hotel.
I told Erica we must add J.K. to our list. We are very hard on places when it comes to cocktails. It’s not enough to have an excellent bartender, the décor must be on point.
Erica’s colleague showed us their room. I almost cried when I saw the bathroom. This one is a little larger. Look at that shower. The floors. The marble. Sigh.
Bonan is one of my favorite designers and what he did with the space is stunning. The building used to be the architecture school for La Sapienza (the largest university in Rome).
Inspired by Tom Ford’s film, A SINGLE MAN, the atmosphere is what folks back in the States call “grown and sexy.”
It’s a very unique space in Rome and I think the bar/lobby will appeal to people who are, well, grown and sexy. I don’t see Flip-Flop Girls™ hanging out here. Grazie dio!
I could spend hours in the library.
