Freehand New York – artistic community in the historic Flatiron District.

Located in the historic Flatiron District, Freehand New York is housed in the former George Washington Hotel—once home to many storied writers, musicians and creatives. Designed by Roman and Williams and featuring custom-commissioned artwork by Bard College students and alumni throughout the hotel and each of the 395 guest rooms. Freehand New York houses five bars and restaurants, including two restaurants and a cocktail bar by restaurateur Gabriel Stulman’s Happy Cooking Hospitality; a Smile to Go outpost from Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte; and the beloved Broken Shaker by Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi of Bar Lab, winner of the “Best Hotel Bar in America” award by Tales of The Cocktail in 2015.
