Paul Sevigny, a nightlife maestro and DJ, also brother of Chloë Sevigny, launched his first solo project inside the trendy Roxy Hotel in TriBeCa and named it Paul’s Baby Grand.
Located in the high-end neighborhood or TriBeCa, Paul’s Cocktail Lounge was initially known as Paul’s Baby Grand.
Sevigny is channelling 1930’s designer Dorothy Draper to create a space with ‘plenty of floral patterns, no black leather, no flat screens‘, as said by Condé Nast Traveller!
The place is small and intimate with paintings, graffitis and colorful furniture. The ornate chandeliers that might make you feel a bit nostalgic. If not nostalgic, it can also make you feel a bit…hum, dreamy?! It’s certainly has a playful mood and lots of visual stimuli.
There is a disco ball to put you in the mood and a great no-cellphone rule (well, not that strict though…).
Just be aware that there is a pretty tight door policy, which on the other hand makes it a celebrity magnet! Just, be aware of it since you might have a hard time getting in. They can be pretty….rigorous.
Here is the good news! If you don’t get in, you can just head to another place we absolutely adore. It’s also inside the Roxy Hotel, but they are a subterranean hidden jazz club called Django. They host some of the most fantastic and exquisite jazz bands. They do charge cover depending on the night.
If you decide to leave, you can head down to Tiny’s, just a few blocks away! It’s a top hot spot in the city!
