New York's Axel Hotel At The Out NYC Complex Will Have A Peekaboo Pool
It's not opening until next fall but details about New York's new gay-friendly (or hetero-friendly, as the developers call it) are starting to emerge. We don't know yet if the rooms will have peekaboo bathrooms, but up on the roof? A peekaboo pool!
Michael Musto of The Village Voice recently had a walk-through of The Out NYC complex and talked a lot about the big nightclub going in here, the xl Dance Bar. The Out will also house a café, restaurant and shops but the part we're most excited about it is the first stateside outpost of Axel Hotels.
A rendering of the lobby
We're still waiting to see room renderings but here's one of the lobby--which will apparently showcase work by sculptor Richard Serra as well as a "huge nude photo that you'll see more of as the elevator ascends."
There will be 127 rooms (soundproofed so guests can sleep through clubbing hours), a spa, and that glass-covered pool area with cabanas up on the roof. An additional covered courtyard will be available for events and--hopefully, if the state approves gay marriage--weddings.
