Last night was a good night. The two visonary lifestyle companies, sbe and Assouline, celebrated the launch of The Assouline Book Collection at Library Bar. Leading global hospitality company brings collaboration with Assouline to the iconic New York property, creating a one-of-a-kind library experience.
The curated collection focuses on photography books from the worlds of art, fashion, travel and design- displaying Assouline's approach to culture, luxury and lifestyle. The event yesterday evening brought together the movers and shakers in the industry to share a unique moment of culture. Casamigos cocktails from Assouline's Tequila Cocktails were served, while author and mixologist of the book signed copies for guests. Those cocktail favorites will now become a permanent part of the Library Bar menu.
The iconic space was the perfect canvus for a collection of Assouline books, which has now come to life from a group of innovative individuals. We look forward to inviting guests and locals alike, to share this special place. As Prosper Assouline states, "Contemporary libraries are the new oasis in our modern way of life. We design libraries for people to disconnect from the digital world, and take time to dream, time for inspiration and reflection."
Each and every special moment from the launch was captured here. Take a look at all the highlights below.
