Aby Rosen has gathered friends and family on March 10 for an exclusive preview of his new property opening, The Blond, at 11 Howard in New York City. The lounge is designed by Anda Andrei with SPACE Copenhagen, featuring a family of bonze-faced statue heads by sculptor Charming Baker inside and a statement artwork by Dan Attoe.

The party kicked off with a series of private parties hosted by Aby and his son, Charlie Rosen. The festivities were accompanied by an upbeat music by such renowned DJs as Erik Tonneson and Madison LST.

The Blond is designed for relaxing and mingling no matter the time of day. The bar is light and open during the day, yet cozy and inviting at night. In the morning, it can be used to peruse the papers, work or gather before a meeting. In the evening, have a drink after dinner and enjoy great music, a vibrant crowd and the perfect ambiance.

Among the attendees were Angelo Bianchi, Julio Montero, Martha Hunt, Jasmine Tookes, Jordan Barrett, Chase Carter, Tabitha Simmons, Sarah Hoover, Stacey Bendet, Wendi Murdoch, Fabiola Beracasa, Samantha Boardman, Alison Brokaw, Holly Sowler, Noel Graupner, Anda Andrei, Lily Mortimer, Gus Wenner, Lyor Cohen, Joyce Varvatos, Susan Edelstein, David Edelstein, Barry Sternlicht, Kamaryn Potter and Jaymie Wisneski.
