DND: The City’s New Speakeasy
Ziegfeld Follies: a series of Broadway and Vaudeville shows in early twentieth century New York. The follies were famous for their troupe of beautiful, slightly risque, chorus girls, known as Ziegfeld girls. Wearing elaborate costumes they “paraded up and down flights of stairs as anything from birds to battleships”. It’s this inspiration that the new bar, DND, hidden under the Vintry & Mercer hotel will take to bring the speakeasy style bar to life when it opens its doors in spring.
With pictures of iconic Ziegfeld girls on the walls, the century-old images will look kindly on the retro glamour and sophistication that DND (Do Not Disturb) have brought to the space. Lit by sultry candles and decked in velvets and leathers with art deco detailing, DND promises dark corners, glamour and a seductive combination of discretion and luxury.
Open to hotel guests and visitors alike the cocktail lover will be able to savour speciality barrel-aged and vintage cocktails served alongside a menu of small plates in this speakeasy.
The moment this place opens hail a London cab and ask the driver to take you back to 1920s New York, he’ll surely drive you straight to DND.
