The perfect spot for armcandy and rockstars. I went to this secret 20’s speakeasy-esque resto this weekend. Beauty & Essex is the love child of Chris Santos of The Stanton Social, the design firm AvroKo, Peter Kane of Happy Endings, and one of the co-founders of Tao and Lavo clubs.
For this special occassion, I debuted my lippie ‘Ain’t No Wifey’… What do you think?
It’s a ginormous 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, & lounge that uses a pawn shop as a front. The ambiance is everything one would expect from such a ingenious combination: trendy, sophisticated, sleek and A-list worthy. The bathrooms were complete with a complimentary champagne bar (for bad dates!) and antique perfume bottles as decor. What a swanky place.
Everything on the menu is tapas size and made to share. Delicious. Beauty & Essex just opened and is definitely going to be a Lower East Side hot spot!
If you are like every other New Yorker and has a wardrobe that consists of ‘All Black Everything’ here is a great designer who will complement your outfit with one piece of statement jewelry. Suzanne Pease is a jewelry design based in New Jersey and I saw her breathtaking pieces at the One of a Kind Show last month. Here is my favorite.
H.I.M is an acronym for highly interesting men for the purposes of this post 🙂 New York is full of ‘interesting’ people and it’s really funny how once you like one thing about them, there is a trickle down effect and you just keep liking them. I walked down the street today and say a sign that says Betray the Usual. My sentiment exactly. Introducing the first of the series! If my theories about life is correct, what you want, wants you too! I will never admit that I have a type but… I love H.I.M!
