Profile

In what has to be the most impressive airing out of bar space since Gin Lane disinfected the Village Idiot’s former home, the team behind GalleryBar and Plan B completely gutted Julep, keeping only the chandeliers, for Ella. Owner Darin Rubell says “We wanted to capture the other side of 1920s,” he told us. “The glamour, decadence — all those things associated with Hollywood at the time.” To that end his partner, Joshua Boyd, got his uncle Carleton Varney, owner of esteemed design firm Dorothy Draper and Company, to give them some red half-moon banquettes left over from the green room at the Oscars, some kidney-shaped love seats, and the rest of it. The lounge has a piano, but rather than being a straight “piano bar," it holds intimate acoustic performances. There's also a Latin American-inspired menu of arepas, empanadas, and palmito fries.
