Located in the heart of NoMad is a stunningly designed, bi-level bar. Guided by the words “ancient future,” the overall concept takes inspiration from old-world, regal, grandiose apothecaries. Guests enter the speakeasy via a staircase lined with hundreds of dried herbs and flowers, before parting a pair of sage green velvet curtains, which unveil a warmly-lit room anchored by a glowing 20-foot rosa aurora marble bar. The ceiling here is clad with hand-printed wallpaper and capped with mirrors to create an illusion of infinity. All of the materials utilized in this space not only add warmth – like reclaimed barnwood floors inlaid with vintage ceramic tile – but also work to absorb sound – as in the custom upholstery wall made of fabric. Upstairs, on the 11th floor of the building, is the penthouse lounge, which features a feminine color palette of dusty rose; rich, reclaimed barnwood accented in gold leaf; vibrantly colored upholstery seats; and a floor-to-ceiling wall of custom stained-glass windows. Meanwhile, the terrace wraps all around the lounge providing unparalleled views of the Empire State Building and Madison Square Park.
