Rockwell Group Announces Olio, A New Hotel In New York’s Theater District Opening In 2020
Scheduled for May 2020 – 116 Rooms
The hotel will serve as a gathering place and respite for travelers, locals, and the theater community to meet, socialize, collaborate, and celebrate. Both in name and design, Olio references Broadway's iconic theaters, with marquee-inspired lighting, dramatic curtains, transformative set and stage-like elements, raw industrial materials reminiscent of backstage life and dressing room-inspired guestrooms. Olio is a natural continuum of Rockwell Group's diverse portfolio of work designing lauded hotels, restaurants, cultural, and performing arts institutions, as well as set designs for more than 60 shows both on and off Broadway.
At the heart of this exciting new hotel concept is Olio's art program, co-curated by renowned theater creatives. The program will contain permanent and temporary exhibits in the hotel's public spaces-including its restaurant, secret garden, second floor balcony bar library, and rooftop bar-that will rotate every six months. Selected pieces from each exhibit will be available for purchase with proceeds benefiting both The Actors Fund and The American Theatre Wing.
