Down in the Refinery Hotel’s loading dock, fresh white walls and soaring two-story ceilings suggest that the 700-square-foot space is just waiting to be filled. This is the Hatbox, an industrial gallery space that creatives are renting out for all and sundry events: designers using the conference room’s projection screen to show next season’s threads; sculptors installing their latest; local brands installing a pop up shop. Gourmands: bring your silver bullet trailer and serve up brews and recipes to passersby. Or got a music video to shoot?

Designed to honor the building’s history, a high-end millinery factory and tea salon, and located in New York’s Fashion District, Refinery Hotel’s Hatbox NYC event space will provide a versatile setting and a prime location to facilitate exceptionally unique displays and events for up to 50 guests.
