Raising The Bar


With the crisp late autumn months in full swing in New York, it’s only a matter of time before venturing out into the cold, during the celebration season, for an evening cocktail becomes a struggle. Fortunately, the city’s latest crop of upscale condominiums offers an array of amenities designed with libations in mind. From a waterfront condominium with a luxury wine store to an Upper East Side development featuring its own private piano bar, Abode2 showcases some of NYC's most luxurious homes that are the perfect place to raise a glass.

Beckford House & Tower

Beckford House & Tower, two complementary condominiums on the Upper East Side, honour the neighbourhood’s iconic pre-war architectural traditions with a beautiful design by Studio Sofield, the award-winning firm known for its projects with Tom Ford, Gucci and YSL. The amenities at the development are what truly take the Golden Age design aesthetic into the 21st century. Located in Beckford Tower, there is a stunning private piano bar and lounge inspired by Manhattan’s iconic Temple Bar, an old haunt famed for its cocktails, and where William Sofield and the project’s developers first met to discuss plans for its design. Beckford Tower's resulting piano bar and lounge feels like you’ve taken a time machine back to the heyday of NYC and could very well pass as a set for Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Even more special, the space is completely exclusive to residents and their guests.

Front & York

Designed inside and out by celebrated architect Morris Adjmi, Front & York is a luxury urban oasis in DUMBO. The development's luxurious DUMBO Billiards Bar & Lounge sets the tone for perfect evenings where residents can entertain like they're in a swanky cocktail lounge without having to make reservations. The elegant amenity space features private cordial lockers, a custom billiards table and prime access to the terrace with an outdoor fireplace.

Waterline Square

Waterline Square, the three-building luxury residential development on Manhattan's Upper West Side, is home to Somm Cellars Wine & Spirits, a luxury wine store created by two renowned sommeliers, Jason Jacobeit and Daniel Jung. Residents of Waterline Square receive special benefits from Somm Cellars, including customized seminars and classes, virtual experiences, expert consultations and—perhaps most exciting—on-demand wine delivery to the development’s residences and amenity spaces.

180 East 88th Street

Situated in the Upper East Side's coveted Carnegie Hill neighbourhood, DDG's 180 East 88th Street features an extensive selection of amenities for residents—a rarity for the neighbourhood. An ideal home for wine aficionados, residents have access to a beautifully designed, temperature-controlled wine cellar featuring private storage wine cabinets available for purchase. Artfully connecting back to the building's grand archways, the luxurious wine cellar offers the perfect place for residents to house their favourite bottles as well as conduct private tastings with guests.
