Brooklyn, New York-based Crème Design has completed the Mr. Purple rooftop bar and restaurant for the Hotel Indigo Lower East Side New York.
Located on the hotel’s 15th floor, the indoor-outdoor F&B outlet is the Gerber Group’s first downtown property and nods to the neighborhood with locally inspired dishes, loft-like interiors, and a creative concept based on Mr. Purple—a fictitious local artist who is a mysterious and free-spirited loner.
“We are extremely proud to introduce Mr. Purple to the vibrant Lower East Side (LES) community,” says Scott Gerber, Gerber Group’s principal and CEO. “We have worked hard to ensure the fabric of the neighborhood flows through every detail of the menu and property, to give Mr. Purple a truly authentic LES-New York vibe.”
With a glass façade, the 3,000-square-foot venue centers on an expansive bar. Contemporary wood furniture is complemented by concrete and metal elements, as well as suspended light fixtures.
While the venue’s 5,000-square-foot western terrace contains a pool, bar, and various seating options—such as chaise lounges, banquettes, and hightop communal tables—a 750-square-foot eastern terrace is also available for more intimate gatherings.
