Extremely exciting news! We can finally announce the first phase of our new immersive project, which we've been working on for the last few months.
You may have caught our COVID-pod cocktail experience Plum Blossom Parlor when we ran it at the peak of the pandemic. If you haven't, check out this article & gallery: https://bit.ly/BPBarchive - the only press we allowed at the time. We are now almost set to expand the experience to 16 different themed rooms on two floors at 6 St Mark's Place, the heart of the East Village, tentatively in summer 2022.
We say "almost" because there is one final hurdle before we can start: the approval of the local community board to pursue the liquor license. With crappy bars nearly obliterating the East Village in recent years, the board is very resistant to new licenses. We need them to understand that what we're bringing is something completely different than a bar. We have a huge vision for the project, with a lineup of talented art crews each creating an installation, our bar experts creating elaborate cocktails & mocktails, and a chef creating elevated shared plates. We want a unique experience that's the right place to bring a date, a parent, a friend from out of town, or even a kid.
Do you live or know someone who lives *within two blocks* of 6 St Marks? Your/their signature on our petition could make all the difference to this project becoming reality. We put up a temporary site with basic info & the petition: http://www.6stmarksplace.com -- please sign, if you're a neighbor! It just takes a few seconds. And if you're not, please forward to anyone you know who may live nearby.
Our signature deadline is Thursday, March 10, just a week and a half from now. We need your help!
Gemini & Scorpio,
makers of themed costume events with live entertainment
