(NY) Beauty + Essex

The perfect spot for armcandy and rockstars. I went to this secret 20’s speakeasy-esque resto this weekend. Beauty & Essex is the love child of Chris Santos of The Stanton Social, the design firm AvroKo, Peter Kane of Happy Endings, and one of the co-founders of Tao and  Lavo clubs.  

For this special occassion, I debuted my lippie ‘Ain’t No Wifey’… What do you think?

It’s a ginormous 10,000 square foot restaurant, bar, & lounge that uses a pawn shop as a front. The ambiance is everything one would expect from such a ingenious combination: trendy, sophisticated, sleek and A-list worthy.  The bathrooms were complete with a complimentary champagne bar (for bad dates!) and antique perfume bottles as decor.  What a swanky place. 

Everything on the menu is tapas size and made to share. Delicious.  Beauty & Essex just opened and is definitely going to be a Lower East Side hot spot! 
Opening week last week with Kim K!
