Andrew Tarlow, of Marlow & Sons and Roman’s, has set out to prove he’s more than a restaurateur with this 70-room waterfront textile factory turned hotel. That said, the gritty-glam property’s heartbeat is naturally in his main-level dining spot, Reynard, and its courtyard.

139 33rd St., nr. Fourth Ave., Sunset Park; 718-305-4182
BPM (short for beats per minute) aims to be a hip-hop-lover’s paradise, with owner D.J. Bijal blasting his soundtrack throughout the hotel’s lobby and rooftop lounge. The rooms do, however, offer solace from the party, with Frette linens on all beds and Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind toiletries.
