Being a great host, whether to dinner party guests or out-of-town relatives, requires grace, a knack for detail and nerves of stainless steel. Fortunately, Upper East Side condo project Azure, with its selection of studio to five-bedroom residences, makes entertaining at home a breeze — no instruction manual or aspirin necessary.
The 34-story, 128-unit building, located at 333 East 91st Street, was designed by SLCE Architects. Available apartments range from $995,000 for a 1,203-square-foot one-bedroom to $13 million for a 5,308-square-foot, five-bedroom penthouse. So without further ado, here are the top tips for your next shindig:
Space it out. The generous living rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows with guaranteed-to-stun views of the city. The 11-foot ceilings and rich Brazilian Afromosia flooring ramp up the social appeal.
Keep things lively in the kitchen. The living area flows into the open kitchen, with an island that invites relaxed conversation. There’s also ceiling-height cabinetry, built-in pantry, Viking appliances, Bosch dishwasher, garbage disposals and water filters so you’ll never miss a step, from canapes to clean-up.
Roomy, elegant bathrooms minimize your stress and impress your guests. All homes feature soaking tubs, and the double sinks in the Italian marble master baths cut down on uncouth elbow jostling.
Let your amenities do the heavy lifting. Azure boasts a private dining room with an adjoining catering kitchen and other entertaining must-haves, so you won’t be dialing for delivery halfway through a soiree.
Everyone loves a rooftop terrace. Sometimes, the best conversation is awe-struck silence. In addition to the two common (but not common) landscaped roof decks, there are private terraces a-plenty in the building. Soak in the top seven views from Azure, and check out the available floorplans here.
