NYC - Chinatown: Capitale (former Bowery Savings Bank)

Located at 130 Bowery, Capitale’s 40,000 square foot space is not only impressive in size, but also in structure. Stanford White's Roman classic 1895 landmark that served as the first Bowery Savings Bank is adorned with Corinthian columns, Venetian glass, marble mosaic floors and a 65-foot high decorated coved ceiling with an art glass skylight. Capitale is a multi-level, multi-room venue equipped to accommodate private parties from 2 to 1,300 guests


The Bowery Savings Bank exterior was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1966. The interior was designated in 1994. (Designation List 121)
