Profile

This lounge from the owners of Cain and a former GM at Lotus is indeed forged from purest gold: gold skulls embedded in the walls, gold chains separating the rooms (bar with captain's chairs up front, banquettes in back, capacity around 150), gold ceilings, and golden "love bracelets" for drinks tables, engraved with Latin sayings. A series of mock oil paintings on the walls depict GoldBar investors, contractors, and the photographer's accountant. The bathroom areas and the D.J. booth are decorated with murals by a graffiti artist named Vinnie. The running theme of the cocktails is honey—it's gold—and it works remarkably well. For gents, we recommend the muscular yet eminently quaffable Gold Rush (bourbon, honey, and lemon); for ladies, the smooth and sweet Bee's Kiss (aged rum, honey, and cream). Is it worth repeat visits? Partying down inside a melted Krugerrand on a regular basis might be a bit much for anyone other than Donatella Versace.
