This 5000 sq/ft space in Park Slope was converted from a warehouse. Owners installed fireplaces, a library, bocce courts, and a collection of lux vintage seating on the first floor, giving the space an old boy’s club/smoking parlor feeling.
This intimate speakeasy pays homage to its NYC home with white subway tiles artfully adorning the space from the façade to the ceiling. The toughness of the metal bar and exposed brick are a welcomed juxtaposition to the stark tiles and soft box lighting. If the tight nature of the interior space isn’t your style, head outside to Weather Up’s backyard garden. The bar’s signature white color and rustic feeling is carried through to the white distressed wood benches of the spacious deck.
The apothecary-themed cocktail bar harks back to an early 1900s Singapore with plush couches, velvet ottomans, ornate flooring, and dim lighting. The back of the main space is anchored by a 30ft bar made from Carrara marble, and a hand carved back bar, filled with hundreds of antique medicine bottles collected from around the world.
Trailer Park Lounge
Old signs, scantily clad mannequins, and a Santa with his reindeer join other awesomely kitschy memorabilia adorning the walls of the Trailer Park Lounge. Founded in 2000 the bar offers up a 50´s rockabilly vibe for its Chelsea patrons.
This nautically themed restaurant, café, and bar occupies the triangular space at Bedford Ave, Lorimer St., and Nassau Ave. in Greenpoint. John and Kevin McCormick worked on the interior of the space – John uses oxidation, ageing techniques on surfaces and metals, while Kevin uses candle wax, motor oil, nails, keys, etc. to weather and age walls and the ceiling.
