There is even a runway going through the venue. The high fashion lounge will host runway shows and selling high-end miscellany behind the bar.
Oddly, they do have a full menu here. (I know I was surprised too).They are serving up dishes like the Grilled Peach Salad with mesclun greens, butter lettuce, roasted pecan, burrata cheese and citrus vinaigrette; Miso Glazed Fresh Albacore Tuna with sauteed spinach & leeks and asabi mashed potato; Chicken & Waffle (skinless fried chicken, waffle, red devil gravy, maple syrup; Seared Tuna Sliders on sesame buns with ginger wasabi mayo and asian coleslaw; Turkey Sloppy Joe Sliders with portobello, red bell pepper and fried house-made pickles; and Vanilla Roasted Beets with water cress, burrata and hazelnuts. Plus, pies like the Italian with rosa grande pepperoni, house-made fennel sausage, caramelized onion and the Mushroom Tapenade with mozzarella and truffle oil. Check out their menu here!
Basically, you can drink some bubbly, get your groove on and buy a rare Swiss timepiece from the bartender. Open to the public November 20th.
