MBnb is a parlor floor apartment in which the small "b" stands for business. Inspired by the great Belgian artist Marcel Broodthaers, who once wondered if he might not sell something and succeed in life, the apartment is made available to artists, designers, publishers, people in trade, and private professionals courtesy of the Broodthaers Society of America, a private entity.

The space
Situated in the former Reading Room and Archive of the Broodthaers Society of America, MBnb comprises the entire 750-square-foot parlor floor in a 120-year-old brownstone located in the Hamilton Heights section of Harlem, New York. The parlor floor is a legally zoned professional space that can be used for mounting art exhibitions, launching design prototypes, or conducting private business by appointment. Adjoining private space includes a full bath, queen-sized bed, 300 thread-count linens, and garden views. The entire venue can be booked through the same portal as the original MBnb. There is a minimum stay of four days and a maximum stay of thirty.

For an additional charge, professional hosting can be provided in case you would like to, say, set up shop for a month but leave after the first week and have your wares remain on display for the remainder of time. Hours are limited, so please consult our website, broodthaers.us, or contact us at member@broodthaers.us.

With its rich cultural and political histories, Harlem is a vibrant neighborhood in which to conduct business. Travel to and from the new MBnb is available via public transit, taxi, or ride sharing and is convenient from all New York-area airports.

Guest access
PLEASE READ:
Due to newly enacted short-term rental laws in New York City, The New MBnb is now a SHARED apartment. The space is a traditional NYC duplex comprised of two floors—one on the parlor level and one on the garden level—linked by an internal stair. Each floor has it's own private entrance and full bath. The only space that is shared by law is the full kitchen and dining room on the garden level. Otherwise, guests who stay on the parlor floor are able to make coffee and tea, store food and snacks, and come and go as they please.

Other things to note
The new MBnb is reachable by public transit, taxi, and ride sharing. It is conveniently located in relation to all New York City-area airports.
