The Blond at 11 Howard is primarily known for its nightlife for Manhattan’s most elite parties. Now, after three years since its opening, the venue is available as a fresh daytime meeting spot.
When you enter The Blond, you will see soft blue and red velvet banquettes, smoky mirrors against blond wood panels, and sculptures of human heads wearing gold animal masks, inspired by the Stanley Kubrick film “Eyes Wide Shut.” Mushroom-shaped lamps sit atop the long bar and long, arched windows look out to Howard Street and “welcome guests to work, mingle and relax throughout the day,” says Julio Montero, creative director of The Blond. The venue is equipped with state-of-the-art audio capabilities, a private entrance, customizable track lighting and two motorized disco balls. Food and beverage is provided by Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group.
The 3,000-square-foot venue is immersed in the cultural hub of SoHo near Canal Street Market, Access Theatre and Washington Square Park. The venue offers a convenient meeting space for corporate meetings or intimate gatherings around the clock.
“No matter what time of day, the space is designed to welcome, relax, and create an open platform for conversation,” says Andrea Kelly, general manager of The Blond. “The dark woods, subdued colors, low lighting and gold accents lend a seductive edge to the space.”
