Vegetarians and vegans are often environmentally conscious, recycling everything from plastic bottles to knock-knock jokes. But this May, you have the chance to reduce your nightlife footprint by joining us at an upscale hideaway made entirely of salvaged materials!
According to Inhabitat NYC, "From the bar top to the bathroom floor, every thing you see in ReVision Lounge is living its second life. Conceived of and designed by Johnny Barounis, ReVision Lounge plays host to an array of eco-chic designs that give the bar the aesthetic of a high-end lounge while being an interactive gallery.
The bar itself is nothing short of a recycled masterpiece. It looks like granite at first glance, but closer inspection reveals that its actually shredded paper – shredded money, to be exact. The blue and green paisley upholstery on the walls is made from plastic bottles. The lights hanging above the bar are the colored discs from traffic lights repurposed into lamps, and the sconces near the cocktail tables are handblown recycled glass. The DJ booth is the front of a 1975 Lincoln Continental...Literally everywhere you look, there is something interesting and unique."
And when you patronize this bar, you are helping support artists who use recycled materials. The bar is also vegetarian-friendly, and allows no real fur and no foie gras on its premises.
New York Magazine raves: "This hip East Village lounge ... boasts one-of-a-kind pieces and an equally special cocktail menu. You’re welcomed in the front by a bar studded with glowing old wine bottles and stools made from skis. The back room houses the real art, with chandeliers made from bicycle chains and beautifully crafted sofas fashioned from coffins, refrigerators and bathtubs. Although the décor is quirky and unique...the ambiance is still sultry."
I'm excited to host my second cocktail event and hope to see you all there!
