While we cannot host our usual events in person at the loft, we have found a way for you to have a safe night out with us: our new immersive cocktail experience, Plum Blossom Parlor. Over two months, we've built a jewel box speakeasy below our main space. It's a luscious indoor "garden" lodge, inspired by The Emperor's Garden: a corner of Forbidden City palace complex in Beijing that was untouched for about 100 years & was being painstakingly restored for the last 15, to open in...2020. Our installation is just a tiny bit of love from Brooklyn to China, at a time when the world couldn't be more split apart.
How it works. The Parlor is designed for COVID pods of up to eight people (two minimum) and runs entirely unstaffed -- which means masks are not required once you're inside. Handcrafted libations are pre-bottled & ready to enjoy on the spot or at home. A mini couch folds out, if you're booking for date night makeouts & cuddle puddles. Snack options are available by advance request, or you can BYO takeout for indoor dining. Simply book your time window & enjoy. And yes, you can book back-to-back slots to extend your time here. You can also book the room for meetings, birthday parties, shoots, Zoom events, etc...absolutely anything, as long as no more than eight people are inside at any one time.
How to book. We're operating the Parlor by suggested donation: $45-55pp for 5-8 guests, $55-65pp for 3-4 guests, $65-75pp for two guests. Each booking includes 1.5hrs in the Parlor, personal service (no tips required), two craft cocktails per person, unlimited soft drinks & preset bar snacks. Email us to let us know your top choices of dates & times, and we will let you know if the Parlor is available. We place a hold on your requested date and time for 24 hours, during which you can send in payment via Venmo or PayPal.
While the Parlor is open to public bookings only at the above dates & times, we can accommodate private parties on virtually any day, including holidays. Rates start at $200 for up to four people for two hours; add $50pp for additional guests; add $20pp for additional hours (bookings ending by 5pm receive 20% off these rates). Food and drinks are handled the same way as on regular operating days (included in each booking: two craft cocktails per person, unlimited soft drinks & bar snacks), or we can put together custom packages, like specialty large format cocktails and an array of cold and hot dishes to share.
Gift options. You can gift the experience itself (simply let us know the recipient's name) or pick up cocktails, glassware, or even a gold bartending kit while you're here.
