Smyth, A Thompson Hotel, Unveils Private Meeting And Event Space In The Heart Of New York’s Tribeca Neighborhood

As its multi-million dollar transformation nears completion, Smyth, a Thompson Hotel, in partnership with Chef Andrew Carmellini’s latest restaurant Little Park, unveils its Private Dining Room, a freshly redesigned dining and event space located in the lower level of the hotel.


Since its re-launch this fall, Smyth has become Tribeca’s preferred locale for both business and pleasure, from day to evening. Now enhanced with the opening of its private dining and event space, the 100-room, boutique hotel can accommodate intimate business meetings, cocktail parties and seated dining affairs.

Carefully curated and designed by Gachot Studios, the 1,024-square-foot event space features warm oak paneling combined with custom-printed, black and white patterned wallpaper, a candlelit stone fireplace, and a 10-seat mahogany bar with a sleek, absolute black stone top. Oak dining tables, vintage leather sofas and mid-century armchairs can be configured to suit the needs of any occasion, holding up to 60 seated guests or 125 cocktailing. Bookings come complete with dedicated service staff, customizable lighting, and a 75-inch flat screen TV for audio/visual presentations with universal compatibility for personalized music playlists.

Customizable breakfast, brunch, lunch, cocktail canapé and dinner menus by Little Park’s chef and owner Andrew Carmellini feature peak organic, seasonal ingredients from his longtime partnerships with local farmers, anglers, vintners, ranchers and foragers. Beverage Director Josh Nadel offers a wine list highlighting Mediterranean and Old World selections, as well as domestic labels from the Pacific Northwest, California and New York State. Mixologist Anne Robinson of Evening Bar and Little Park formulates signature cocktails and classic favorites.

The renovated private event space is part of a comprehensive multi-million dollar redesign, including Smyth’s new public spaces and refreshed guestrooms and suites, also overseen by Gachot Studios.

Inspired by the rich history and culture of Tribeca, Gachot created a sense of home living by dividing Smyth’s ground floor lobby space into various public areas – the Living Room, Den, Library and Evening Bar. Recently debuted this fall, every room in the lobby is memorable with original art, books and photography handpicked by the design team from local gallery owners and friends, including Robin Rice Gallery and McNally Jackson Picture Room. A focal point of the Evening Bar is a four-panel frieze mural depicting scenes from Tribeca’s history created exclusively for the hotel by Brooklyn-based artist Matthew Benedict. A back-lit, eight-seat mahogany cocktail bar with navy leather paneling opposite the entry’s fireplace envelopes the 27-seat space in a warm glow. Low-slung sofas, mid-century lb Kofod-Larsen chairs and finely upholstered vintage settees are carefully configured for intimacy and comfort, as well as informal gatherings.

Slated for completion this summer, the next phase of the hotel renovation will unveil 100 redesigned guestrooms and suites, including four premium suites, also ideal for small gatherings, exclusive events or meetings in a private setting. Spanning 1,200 square feet, the Penthouse Suite will also feature an expansive outdoor terrace, complete with full audio/visual capabilities and a separate entrance for catering. Inspired by John and Christine Gachot’s own home, the spacious interiors will reflect an apartment-style residential feel.
