New York Opening: Bishops & Barons

Bishops? Barons? Where else can you party like a Teutonic aristo and a prince of the holy mother church all at once? The new Bishops & Barons is indeed fit for the titled classes, with its glittering chandeliers, plush velvet banquettes, and general air of old glamour and decadence.

The newest nightlife venue from Danny Kane of The Gates, it features the creative talents of Patrick Fahey and Kevin Chun; and with drinks by Dushan Zaric of Employees Only, it’s got cocktail cred to match any in NYC (try The Billionaire for maximum swank). Chun’s succinct menu of comestibles completes the epicurean picture. For those naughty special occasions, a VIP "chamber" is done up like a retro showgirl’s dressing room.
