There’s nothing we love more than good cocktails and good food! That in itself is enough to have an enjoyable night. However, a little extra doesn’t hurt. Add in some luxury car-gazing, and you’ve got your extra. Cue Genesis House, the immersive brand experience in the heart of New York’s Meatpacking District, and Genesis House Restaurant curated by Onjium, one of Seoul, South Korea’s famous Michelin-starred restaurants. The sophisticated space consists of a restaurant, showroom, library, and event space. From artful installations, to a collection of Genesis luxury vehicles in the Showroom, to Korean cuisine that is made in partnership with Michelin-starred Onjium chefs (Park Sungbae and Cho Eun Hee), to the Library, that consists of a collection of hundreds of rare books, you’ve got yourself a day (or night!). P.S. The Library, just wow! The books can transport you around the world without leaving your seat. It’s also curated by Assouline and Arumjigi, so that makes sense. While relaxing in the Library, you’re also offered a traditional Korean tea ceremony by the tea master. Pretty cool. Lastly, the “Cellar Stage” offers interactive experiences, and welcomes artists, academics, cultural icons, and more for various events.
Looking for a unique night out? This is your spot. Looking for a reprieve from the hustle of the city? This is also your spot. There is something for everyone.
Now that we’ve presented a picture of Genesis House as a whole, let’s get to the good good stuff; The Genesis House Restaurant. Just this week, they launched a refreshed spring menu featuring entirely new and distinctly Korean seasonal dishes, complemented by their signature cocktails. There’s also a beautiful terrace garden, offering views of the High Line, Hudson River, and Lower Manhattan skyline. For those warm NYC days and nights, this is the perfect spot to come and relax.
Check out our journey as we start with their signature cocktails, created with authentic Korean flavor, to their dinner menu, inspired by royal Korean cuisine, to the Genesis showroom on the first floor to check out some of their luxury vehicles.
