Reopening in 2023

While we cannot host our usual events in person at the loft, we present our new COVID-safe immersive cocktail experience, Plum Blossom Parlor. Over two months, we've created a jewel-box installation 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. See this article for an in-depth dive on our original inspiration as well as a sneak peek of the project.
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 checked in. Handcrafted libations are pre-bottled & ready to enjoy on the spot or at home. Snack options are available by advance request. A mini couch folds out, if you're booking for movie nights or chill-out experience. You can also reserve for meetings, birthday parties, shoots, Zoom events, etc...as long as no more than eight people are inside at any one time. Just book your time window & enjoy.
How to book. We're open Thur-Sun for three daily sessions: 6/8/10pm. Use the "book" link above to secure your date & time, and if you want to add other options (see additional details below), use the "inquire" link to email us after. To get more time in the Parlor, book back-to-back slots -- you then get the 30min reset break between them as bonus, for a total of 3.5hrs. Full night buyouts are possible as well, as long as there are no more than eight people in the Parlor at any one time. Stay tuned to the mailing list to be the first to know if we add sessions (like Sunday high tea or brunch!) or extend our run.
Gift options. You can gift the experience itself by booking on your recipient's behalf or pick up cocktails, glassware, or even a gold bartending kit during your booking or by making an appointment to browse. Not local to NYC or want to enjoy a taste of the Parlor at home? We can send you a selection of flavors as cocktails, individual custom ingredients, or even cocktail kits. Get in touch through the link above to talk about possibilities.
