Welcome to NY Basement

Enjoy exciting cocktails and culinary creations in the atmosphere of pre-war Manhattan – welcome to NY Basement!

With its stylish ornamentation and colourful patterns, and an interior design that is both hip and historical, NY Basement is a trendy restaurant and cocktail bar in the basement of our nostalgic and distinctive building at the end of Wilhelmina pier.

The contrast between grandeur and basic has an exciting effect. Smaller, more intimate and more exclusive than the well known restaurant on the ground floor of Hotel New York, NY Basement has its own vibe and character, plus all of the hospitality that Hotel New York is famous for. Come and see for yourself!

Back to the Base

The Roaring Twenties were followed by the Turbulent Thirties – an era of trans-Atlantic journeys to the New World. NY Basement takes the iconic Hotel New York ‘Back to the Base’. Descend the ‘stairway to history’ and you will find yourselve in times long gone by. And yet everything feels perfectly normal. As if this restaurant has always been there…

Food & Cocktails
