Moxy Hotels has expanded its New York footprint with the launch of the Moxy Lower East Side. The 303-room urban retreat is the fifth outpost in Manhattan. Anthem Productions was the integrator for the venues where they installed 1 SOUND loudspeakers. Each venue is a different application from the hotel lobby’s cafe to the piano lounge, 1 SOUND’s loudspeakers were the right fit for each.
“By providing a stunning variety of venues and concepts under a single roof, the hotel really embodies the diversity of the Lower East Side. People come to the neighborhood to indulge their thirst for discovery, and they’ll get that at the Moxy, too—and we’ve made it accessible rather than exclusive,” says Lightstone president Mitchell Hochberg
1. The Fix, bar and all-day café
Located in the lobby is an all day bar and cafe called The Fix. Here there are distributed Cannon C6’s and installed FSUB45 and SUB310’s that are hidden under banquettes and throughout the space.
2. Silver Lining, piano lounge
The piano lounge, Silver Lining, that pays tribute to the entertainment-filled neighborhood of the hotel by Tao Group. At this venue, there can be several different performance groups in a night. Cannon C6’s and SUB310’s are deployed for this space.
3. Sake No Hana, modern Japanese Restaurant
Tao Group’s restaurant, Sake No Hana, is a 4,227 square-foot space that seats 165. Here, Anthem installed Cannon C4i’s and C6’s along with Tower LCC44’s, satisfying the needed SPL and clarity for this restaurant. 1 SOUND Wall Subwoofers and Floor Subwoofer were distributed as well as SUB310’s, which are comparable to the SPL output of a double 18” subwoofer with a slimmer form factor.
4. Highlight Room, rooftop bar
At the 16th floor of the hotel is where the glamorous rooftop bar is located, the Highlight Room, another venue done by Tao Group. Here DJ’s perform and a dance floor appears on a popular weekend night. The system here is made up of cardioid Tower LCC44’s, which help reduce reflections in the space that consists of floor to ceiling glass windows. WSUB45’s and SUB310’s are deployed for low frequency. Cannon C6’s are used on the DJ booth as monitors as well as outside on the balcony with C-Clamps and L-Brackets that offer easy aiming.
