Clad in marble and terra-cotta, The Kimpton Gray has been a tastemaker for more than a century, first as an office building and now as an elevated-experience hotel. When the 9-to-5 day is done in the Financial District, those in the know flock to the on-site restaurants - Volume 39, a law library-themed bar, and Boleo, an Argentinean-inspired rooftop lounge.
We focus on Belgian inspired session ales, oak barrel-aging, and alternative fermentation. Our beers are brewed with intention, as part of a ‘beer first’ culture. Our pursuit of balance inspires effort to bring order to random. Our lives are enriched by personal experience, some more common than others, but each as unique as the next. This random collective becomes who we are, what we do, and how we remember. We liken our beers to these experiences.
