The Rose Bar and Jade Bar

2 Lexington Ave. New York, NY 10010 | Gramercy Park | 212-475-4320

Location Description:

This duo of bars at the Gramercy are the physical manifestations of Kanye West's Twitter account. The Jade Bar, a cocktail-serving nook in the room, features the uncanny and bizarre work of George Condo, provider of the banned album art for West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. In the larger Rose room, the macabre beauty continues, with a halo of saw blades serving as the chandelier, skull portraits by Damien Hirst, and custom velvet-coated seating designed by The Diving Bell and the Butterfly director artist Julian Schnabel. There's also a nice pool table and drinks. Try the vodka and mint-based Russian Riviera. This is probably the closest you'll get to wining and dining in the MoMA or the New Museum.
