West Village’s stunning Bromley Room is reborn in a permanent location
When West Village announced the closure of its ephemeral arts and functions space The Bromley Room earlier this year, we couldn’t be too sad. First of all, we were warned that this first incarnation of celebrated artist David Bromley’s resident studio space was never meant to be permanent. Secondly, we were promised that David’s work would be scoring its own forever home within the walls of West Village at a later date – and that time has finally come. Allow us to introduce to you Bromley Room #2, West End’s brand-new home of all things arty.
Bromley Room #2 is nestled in amongst the walls of West End’s iconic Peter’s Ice-Cream Factory, boasting a lush vista overlooking West Village’s brand-new parkland The Common. The space itself has a New York-inspired warehouse feel that oozes effortless style, taking up 400 square metres that are filled with the eye-popping art of David and his co-collaborator (and wife) Yuge. From Friday to Sunday, the days see the gallery open to the public – and by night, the space is available for private hire.
When it comes to David and Yuge’s influence on the West Village site, Bromley Room #2 may be the centrepiece but there is plenty more to see. Coming into their third year of an artistic residency at the site, the couple has imbued a true sense of their broad artistic scope by installing a number of standout features. The duo has fitted out two West Village apartments (including furniture and artwork, of course) and created two water features for The Common. David was also given free reign to paint different styles of artwork for the foyers of the first two residential buildings at West Village.
