On Saturday, September 24th, doors will open to José Andrés’ newest project, Nubeluz. Located on the 50th floor of The Ritz-Carlton, NoMad, the highly-anticipated cocktail bar “was envisioned as a lightbox in the sky” thanks to globally-renowned architect Rafael Viñoly and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio.
Deriving its name from the Spanish word “nube” for cloud and “luz” for light, Nubeluz offers New Yorkers a luxe new respite 500 feet above the bustling streets of Manhattan.
The elegant design is a “beacon of light,” combining reflective surfaces, enhanced lighting, opulent textiles, two outdoor terraces, and 270-degree views of the cityscape. Get a taste of old school New York glam with the interior’s back-lit velum panels, mirrored details and onyx bar tops.
“When we first envisioned this property with Rafael Viñoly we knew that the views would be spectacular and we needed to create an equally striking space inside for guests to be fully immersed in the beauty and glamour of New York at night,” said Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, President of Flag Luxury Group. “Nubeluz is truly the crown jewel atop The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad.”
The cocktail menu, led by highly-acclaimed Cocktail Innovator Miguel Lancha, is an ode to “heritage and innovation.” Sip on standouts like the Foggy Hill with Del Maguey Vida mezcal, Yzaguirre 1884 Gran Reserva vermouth, Cynar, Aperol and an orange-thyme aromatic cloud or non-alcoholic creations like the Firefly made with Gnista Barreled Oak, saffron, Thai basil, Thai chili tincture, and Fever Tree Indian tonic.
For bites, enjoy elevated takes on Spanish and American favorites like their Grilled Cheese with thyme & honey mustard, their Bagel & Lox Cone that consists of cream cheese, marinated salmon roe, & black sesame, and Jamón Ibérico de Bellota Cinco Jotas, which is hand-carved, free-range, 100% ibérico ham from the pigs of Spain, paired with airbread and tomate fresco.
“Nubeluz draws energy and inspiration from the great city of New York, which completely surrounds you here 500 feet in the air,” said Chef José Andrés. “Bringing the magic of our bars and lounges to the heart of this iconic city skyline is a meaningful milestone as we grow in New York City,” added Sam Bakhshandehpour, President of José Andrés Group.”
