The ELYSIAN Connect App Launch held at the refined Castell Rooftop Lounge atop the AC Hotel New York Times Square — the perfect setting to present a revolutionary platform for connecting and inspiring women globally.
On Thursday, December 12th, ELYSIAN hosted the ELYSIAN Connect App Launch at the breathtaking Castell Rooftop Lounge, an oasis perched high atop the AC Hotel New York Times Square. Designed by BHDM Design, the Castell Rooftop Lounge couples an iconic view overlooking Times Square with contemporary décor in a sophisticated, yet comfortable atmosphere. Event guests conversed throughout the space while enjoying the cozy fireplace, the luxe granite bar and stepping outside on the lush, open-air terrace to take in the iconic city views. This event served as the official launch of the ELYSIAN Connect App and cover reveal for ELYSIAN’s Winter 2019-2020 Art & Travel Issue.
ELYSIAN’s partnership with AC Hotel New York Times Square provided the ideal event setting in a hotel that is perfectly positioned within walking distance of the city’s bustling center. For the most remarkable visit to NYC, the AC Hotel is the place to stay, offering a modern design with sleek furnishings and exquisite original artwork throughout.
It was a lively celebration bringing together women from all over the world, including the ELYSIAN Circle of Inspiring Women, ELYSIAN cover models, ambassadors, entrepreneurs and key female leaders in the media, entertainment, fashion and publishing industries. ELYSIAN would like to express sincere gratitude to all that flew from near and far to join in an unforgettable event. Thank you to our sponsors of this event: AC Hotel New York Times Square and ALOR, the California lifestyle brand celebrating 40 years of designing classic, yet contemporary jewelry and watches — works of art that can be worn daily.
