The overall feel is slightly jungle-like, and is intended to evoke "a dark feminine energy and brooding intimacy." Which might explain the rumors we heard last month about Kristen Wiig making out with a drummer from The Strokes in one of the club's shadowy booths. Surrounded by so much bloomage, they must have felt like Adam and Eve in the garden!
Guests at Lilium, which is located east of the W's main Park Avenue entrance, can enjoy a different DJ each night of the week, and a traditional cocktail menu (prices will hover around $14, with bottle service starting at $225-$325).
Additionally, if you happen to be a fan of The Whiskey, the hotel lounge concept launched by Gerber Group (who are now installed inside W Hotels, other Starwood Hotels, and Sofitels all around the world), then this place might be up your alley. Gerber Group wanted to pay tribute to The Whiskey's twentieth anniversary with the design of Lilium, which re-interprets the former's "vintage rock 'n' roll" feel.
