Crowning the top floor of The Bellevue, a national historic landmark, XIX provides a stylish setting that blends the building’s classic architectural elements with the latest in modern design. The unique balance of two 36-foot grand rotundas and floor to ceiling arched picture windows adds to an unforgettable dining experience.
Class symmetry is at work, as are clean lines, an accommodating scale and a multifaceted application of materials, textures and finishes. Inspired by a passion for cultural design and a quest for perfection, Marguerite Rodgers capitalized on the architectural elements and superior location of this cherished Philadelphia landmark, exceeding expectations in returning it to its original beauty with an updated and contemporary style.
Over 15 pieces of artwork, ranging from traditional watercolors to contemporary sculpture and glass, are displayed in Hyatt at The Bellevue’s XIX Café, Bar and Restaurant. Local artists and galleries have provided many original and valuable pieces to create the collection of unique exhibits now on display.
Local contributors include: Amanda Means from Gallery 339,; Gary Haven Smith from Reeves Contemporary; Allen Bently, Tim McFarlane, Neil Anderson, Alexis Serio and Charles Burwell from Bridgette Mayer Gallery; Silvano Rubino and Margo Nimiroski from Weller Gallery; Thomas Brummet from Schmick Dean Gallery; Jennifer Blazina and Brian Regan from Philadelphia Glass Works; and Vincent Romaniello and Tremain Smith from Gallery Siano.
Custom designed to highlight the grand 36-foot high domed ceiling of the restaurant, a 19-foot Italian chandelier casts a glow of warmth and character over the room. The handcrafted strands of pearls drape from the ceiling above the raw bar and act as an instrumental yet functional part of the lighting design.
In a tribute to the century old Bellevue building, the preservation of its two 36-foot dome rotundas has captured the timeless elegance of this French Renaissance landmark.
