A smart new city centre hotel from the owners of Hotel Gotham launches in Manchester next week.
Based in a newly built tower on Portland Street, Hotel Brooklyn is set over 10 storeys with a restaurant and bar on the ground floor and a mini cinema in the lobby.
Guests check themselves in on iPads at reception, which leads through into The Stoop - a screening area kitted out with a projector and tiered seating designed to look like the steps of a Brooklyn brownstone building.
Around the corner is The Snug, a cosy lounge with blue velour sofas and vinyl players spinning records from the Manchester music scene.
Runyon's Bar and Restaurant, named after New York journalist and writer Damon Runyon, seats 96 people against the backdrop of a Brooklyn Bridge mural, a glossy black metro-tiled open kitchen and glowing neon signs.

It will serve an all-day menu of American diner dishes and Big Apple classics such as oak-smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese, capers, dill and fries (£9), smoked beef hot dog with cucumber kraut slaw, mustard and fries (£11) and Manhattan clam chowder, crispy cured ham and pimento aioli (£8).
There's also a more wide-ranging a la carte menu with dishes including slow-braised beef short rib with onion soubise and kohlrabi pickles (£16), baked salmon with walnut crumb, braised fennel sauce and mojo verde (£17.50) and chipotle baked pumpkin and polenta croquettes with red wine mushroom fricassée and wilted greens (£14).
Hotel Brooklyn general manager Paul Bayliss said: "It's nice, on-trend casual dining - but high end stuff.
"We're having a play around with the Prohibition years and also what a US diner would have.
"I think it'll turn into a bit of a destination restaurant."
The bar will serve a selection of cocktails, covering all the classics as well as some twists including the Brooklyn Rickey (Manchester Gin Raspberry, lime juice and soda, £9) and the Warhol Banger (Whitley Neill Blood Orange Gin, Galliano, orange juice, Grenadine, £10).
Up on the ninth floor is another bar, Salvation, attached to a flexible banqueting and function space named Brooklyn Heights, where floor to ceiling windows look out across Chinatown to Manchester town hall and beyond.
Sandwiched in between are 189 stylish rooms and suites, decorated with illustrations of New York street scenes and kitted out with Smeg fridges, retro Goodman's radios and rotary dial phones.
As at Gotham, it's all price-tagged and available to buy should guests want to take home any souvenirs.
In the bathrooms, guests will find organic bamboo toothbrushes and ethically sourced toothpaste, green soap and lotion dispensers designed to minimise waste.
Eighteen of the rooms are fully adapted for guests with disabilities, with stylish, spacious, wheelchair-friendly layouts and bathrooms overseen by accessible design company Motionspot.
Parent company Bespoke Hotels aims to set the gold standard for accessibility, championed by chairman Robin Sheppard, whose own mobility has been affected by Guillain-Barré syndrome.
Ed Warner, Founder & CEO of Motionspot, said: “Accessible accommodation at Hotel Brooklyn features subtle details like basins with integrated hand grips, removable matt black grab rails, accessible bedroom storage and a hidden ceiling track hoist.
"We hope this high level of attention paid to inclusivity will make Hotel Brooklyn one of the most sought-after venues for guests of all abilities."
The hotel opens on Friday February 14 and is already 'pretty full' at the weekends for the first three months, and there are already three weddings booked in at Brooklyn Heights.
It's one of eight new hotels opening in Manchester city centre this year, with a further 20 scheduled to open in the next three years.
"If you're going to open a hotel, Manchester is the place to do it," said Paul.
"We can't even count the number of cranes in the city, there's that many buildings going up. It's booming.
"As long as the city keeps growing there'll always be a demand but you have got to be the sharpest operation because people can be a bit more choosy about the offer they want."
