Fancy a tipple? Come see Daisy! Parked in the front garden of The High Line Hotel, Daisy — our 1957 London double-decker bus — serves cocktails and light bites on her Upper Deck and in her interior cabin, lovingly referred to as the Queen’s Teapot. Since arriving on our castle grounds in 2019, she’s received the royal treatment: Her interior is decked with custom wallpaper featuring The High Line Hotel’s frequent canine guests, a hat rack (fascinators, bowlers and deerstalkers!), quirky needlepoints and biscuit tins filled with dog treats. (Check out some of the details below!) She’d be chuffed to host your party, complete with catchy Brit beats!
In her prior career, Daisy — then known as 128 DTD after her vehicle identification number — merrily transported the good people of Lancaster, England, as part of Fleet 128 operated by Lancaster City Transport. Little did she know that New York City was in her future!
In February 2019, Daisy rolled onto the Atlantic Sky cargo ship and departed Liverpool, England, bound for a new life in America. After about a dozen port stops, Daisy’s ship came in. . .to New Jersey. She spent five months in Newark being fixed up for her Chelsea debut. As the former estate of Clement Clarke Moore — a descendant of British aristocrats — The High Line Hotel is a natural home for a London expat like Daisy.
Is your pooch pictured? Daisy’s walls are covered with Nicole Zollos’s illustrations of canines who frequent our lobby and garden. The very good boys (and girls) sport British flair (jaunty bowler hats, canes and tiaras!).
Come sit and stay a while on Daisy’s Upper Deck, dotted with topiary dogs — and daisies, naturally!
Straight from a British granny’s estate, Daisy’s décor includes an embroidered likeness of David Bowie and cheeky cushions.
