The chandelier reminding us of the hotel's Couture Suite is no accident--the bar was also designed by Susan Jaques, who had this to say about her work:
“I wanted to create a destination that captures the glamour of the greats who have graced the property throughout its history.”
Meaning? Red velvet banquettes, vintage black-and-white prints, a mirror-paneled bar, and golden Murano glass fixtures. Paramount Bar will also have a rotating roster of female DJs, and a cocktail menu that includes a Billy Rose's Fizz and a Red Velvet. (More on those drinks soon, once we've had a chance to give the topic due diligence.)
The bar will be open from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
