The Hawaiian Room
The Hawaiian Room, an entertainment venue at The Lexington Hotel (1937-1966), was a tropical escape in the heart of New York City. Hundreds of dancers, singers and musicians were recruited from The Big Island to share their native Hawaiian culture while guests enjoyed coconut cocktails and a chef-prepared Polynesian Luau. It was a beloved fixture at The Lexington for almost 30 years, so we honored it by designing a suite inspired by Polynesian culture. As they say, "Aloha" (welcome) to your very own oasis.

Some notable items in the room: "Melodies for Dancing from the Enchanted Islands" - an album of Polynesian songs recorded at The Hawaiian Room by the musicians that made it famous, Vintage Barware of the era including Tiki Glasses & Cocktail Umbrellas, an authentic gourd drum and conch shell horn, vintage woven palm leaf fans (customary at Luaus), artwork made with natural found shells, handmade rice paper, and seaglass, a Hula girl statue made from lava rock, rattan & bamboo with upscale, modern finishes such as gilding and lacquer, a woven hanging swing for the terrace.
