This lovely converted 1894 warehouse takes its influence from the prohibition Twenties, an era during which illegal establishments thrived on high society’s excessive indulgence in sensual pleasure lifestyles. It is an underground bunker in every sense of the word, cotton sacks stacked to the double-volume ceiling are illuminated by amber lighting. The roof-high bar is the focal point of the space, showcasing rare bottles of liquor and oddities. Heaps of shelled peanuts perch atop every surface, their casings on the floor make for great views under the heaps of shelled peanuts perch.
