The Propaganda Club
The grand marbled lobbies and moonlit fine dining of Manhattan are the inspiration for Petar and Wendy Belosevic’s (Zhivago) supper club.
Guests can check in their coats at the ground-level lobby before descending the stairs below a large chandelier. In the basement, there’s a choice of three different areas in which to spend the evening.
The first room, the Soho Lounge, features a luxurious velvet sofa, which seats 55 people, snaking its way around the whole room. It’s a space for walk-in guests to enjoy a drink from the main bar and some small plates to share.
Next, three flush subway-tiled bars, called the Sidecar Bars, greet guests who want to stand and sip. Then there’s the Manhattan Lounge. Classic booth seating lines the room, and high-top communal tables are a place to sit and imbibe. This space is intended for more formal dining, with a full menu available until late. Dishes such as steak tartare and snapper carpaccio are made to share.
In the warmer months, an alleyway beer garden provides a sunny escape from below the ground.
