The Center of Celebration
The Grand Salon earns its name through a palette of platinum and sparkling neutral shades, Jouffre silk-covered walls, parquet floors, and plush, high-backed banquettes. Here, drinks and dining complement social exchanges beneath a 64-arm Baccarat chandelier. Days debut with pastries on its central marble table; evenings begin when the circle of champagne bottles appears in a bright silver vasque; nights end with craft cocktails in cut-crystal tumblers. Whirring white-hot with a sense of secrecy, this is the hotel’s humming heart.
Any and all requests are honored here, including a full bar menu, coffee, tea, and signature cuisine.
Visually stunning with a dose of French “je ne sais quoi”, the Grand Salon is inherently memorable—a quality well-suited for lavish and celebrations.
A spirit of fancy, rhythm and ritual keeps the plush, platinum-and-champagne-hued Grand Salon humming throughout the day, from breakfast, when a variety of French pastries abound are laid out across a central marble table, to late into the evening, long after the chandeliers have dimmed to a coquettish wattage, when nightcaps in cut-crystal tumblers are enjoyed among friends old and new.
In between, the Grand Salon will be the hosts of light lunches served in the sumptuous seating nooks and high-backed banquettes that flank the salon’s runway-style center aisle; afternoon high tea taken from an exquisite selection of Mariage Frères boutique blends; and a 6pm Champagne presentation that is a nightly display of Parisian-style pomp and circumstance. Afterwards, guests can pair cocktails with French-inflected small plates prepared by our expert chefs. Paris-based designers Gilles & Boissier have lavished attention on every surface and detail of the soaring, 22-foot-high salon, from its pleated Jouffre silk-covered walls, to its parquet floors and plush upholstered seating. The pièce de résistance, however, is the 64-arm Baccarat chandelier at the room’s very center.
Paneled in silver-leafed boiserie and sitting in an open alcove off the Grand Salon, the book-lined library offers a semi-secluded space for intimate celebrations and social gatherings of all kinds, from Champagne toasts to late-night rendezvous, birthday brunches to mid-afternoon meetings complete with Mariage Frères.
An immersion in the fine art of tea: at afternoons, high tea is held at Baccarat New York in exclusive partnership with Mariage Frères. Boutique blends brewed by our tea sommelier are paired with chef-selected canapés and petit fours, open for enjoyment among guests, residents, and visitors.
