Laurie commented that Dark Nostalgia featured a bar in New York called Apotheke -- she wants to move in. I don't blame her.
It's designed to look like a 19th century Austrian royal apothecary. Designer Christopher Tierney took inspiration from researching old European apothecaries, absinthe dens, and the Biedermeier design era.
The space is anchored by a 30-foot performance bar made from imported carrera marble. The hand-carved back bar is filled with hundreds of antique medicine bottles that were collected from around the world.
I love the wood floors, with tile inset corners.
I can't tell what the ceiling is made of, can you?
Tierney also fabricated wall sconces and a chandelier from chemistry glassware...
Chemistry graffitti -- how clever!
Wallpaper from vintage apothecary adverts.
The ceiling looks like fabric to me.
That chemistry chandelier is just tremendous! I could definitely move in....
the chandelier Lighting, infact the room and ceiling is quite modern.
Amazing Bar ! I have to go there on my next Trip .
Amazingly gorgeous! I want to live there too. Or at the very least, I wish I lived in New York and could hang out there.
what a cool place! i think the ceiling fabric might be orchestral music scores. will have to check this out next time i am in nyc!
I was mighty excited about this until I read the Cityseach comments:
18 of the 24 reviews are 1 or 2 stars, largely citing a hyper-arrogant doorman, $35 absinthe drink prices, shady check inflation ... what a shame, it IS so beautiful!
Reminds me a little of the Night Hotel: http://www.nighthotelny.com/
so incredibly beautiful!
