Destination – A Hidden Gemma

Nestled in the lobby of the Bowery Hotel is Gemma – one of our team’s favorite NYC restaurants. Unlike many bars, Gemma has a cozy, vintage vibe that makes it perfect for our after-work happy hours

Details like melting candelabras and suspended wicker baskets give the restaurant a unique ambiance and personality.

We love all of the rich wooden chairs and rustic tables.

Gemma has an enormous wine selection (yes please!) and is known for its sophisticated Italian eats. When it comes to our drink of choice, the team loves Gemma’s Holland Sour, Moscow Mule, or during summer evenings – a glass of rosé. If you’re a fan of tequila, try a spicy margarita – it’s Marissa’s personal favorite.

Pizza and wine – you can’t go wrong.
