citizenM has opened its new rooftop bar and lounge, cloudM.
Spanning the entire 21st floor of the citizenM New York Bowery hotel in Lower Manhattan, cloudM has an outdoor terrace and indoor deck with 360-degree views of New York.
The menu at cloudM includes select spirits, beers, wines and mocktails. An extensive cocktail list specially curated for the Bowery property includes drinks like the Firefighter Skateboarder, with makrut leaf-infused Bombay Sapphire, Buddha’s Hands Limoncello, lemongrass, lime, laos, coconut cream, egg white and centella asiatica soda, and Accountant Kite Surfer, with Bacardi Superior, Patron Reposado, pisco, watermelon wine, orgeat, mandarin and ginger beer. Light bites—playful comfort foods with an element of surprise—are also served at the bar.
Each month, cloudM will host a variety of events, including Music Mondays with performances from different local artists, Creative Wednesdays with inspirational talks and workshops and Tasting Thursdays, where different Lower East Side chefs will prepare small bites for bar guests.
Designed by Amsterdam-based firm concrete, a long-time partner of citizenM, the bar has floor-to-ceiling windows, oversized chandeliers and colorful Vitra chairs and couches. Above the bar area is a rendering of the view, painted by Jonathan ‘Meres One’ Cohen—the New York-based lead artist of 5 Pointz creates—with a dynamic display of his well-known wild tags and layering technique.
When exiting cloudM, the guests can take the elevators, or walk down the Museum of Street Art (MoSA) spanning the full height of the 20-floor stairwell. MoSA features graffiti art specifically designed for citizenM by 5 Pointz creates, paying homage to the collective’s roots, and their love for the Lower East Side.
