The Dressing Room is a vodka and vintage bar. They house beautiful pieces from local designers and they also offer a vintage exchange. “Sip cocktails ’til you shop.”
I casually shopped the vintage boutique area before spending a good amount of time at the bar area. It was the bartender’s first day working at The Dressing Room. I enjoyed champagne shots and Jameson whiskey. I also got to experience new and extremely interesting specialty cocktail mixes that included: champagne with a piece of rock sugar soaked in Blood Orange Bitters, and the most unusual cocktail made with jalapeño vodka and cilantro.
Their cocktail menu is interesting, but I’ve never seen a sneaker menu at any lounge in New York City. Nike Dunks and Pumas were on the menu during my visit – a sneaker fanatic’s dream! A pair of Dior glasses grasped my attention. The glasses are gorgeous. I ended up buying a fabulous bracelet, which reminds me of a Schonbek light-fixture. The bracelet has a cluster of white crystals hanging from a gold band. The crystals shake with every movement of the wrist. It is a true statement piece. I’m going to wear it for Dee Dee and Nicole’s birthday celebration at 230 Fifth. I plan to do a Miss America style wave, so I can flash my new jewel.
You don’t have to be a fashion junkie to appreciate The Dressing Room. It’s a really cool hangout where everyone feels welcomed. You can find two-finger-rings, Prada shades, mod dresses, vintage kicks, High Line Beer, and champagne cocktails. The Dressing Room is a one stop for every Metropolitan Junkie. It is definitely a must visit, NYC gem.
