Psst… Restauranteur Dave Oz, owner of Bathtub Gin, brings you The 18th Room: a contemporary speakeasy with an exotic twist. West Chin Architects, Designers & Decorators (WCA), the designers behind The 18th Room, were tasked with bringing to life their client’s vision of an upscale speakeasy that would be a nod to Bathtub Gin but have a distinct personality and life of its own. To achieve this vision, WCA conjured their musings on the highlife as experienced in an unbuttoned atmosphere. Drawing inspiration from the grandeur of New York City’s Speakeasys and the languid late-nights of 1920s Havana, the bar and dining room serve guests looking for an inviting, fresh take on a nostalgic dining and drinking experience. Passing through Stone Street’s coffee dispensary into a captivating sea of tropical leaves, guests are transported into a lavishly seductive cocktail bar. The light emanating from the bar leaps from the mossy green tiles to the antique mirrors creating an enchanting area to pause for a cocktail. Once in the dining area, guests are encouraged to relax into a decadent oasis ripe with lush velvet booths and a lounge area suited for romantic moments or happy hour greetings. WCA utilized a mixture of warm brass, rich walnut details, dreamy grasscloth wallpaper and opulent lighting to create an atmosphere that is sultry yet jovial. Just as prohibition era speakeasys danced between concealing and revealing their true indulgences, The 18th Room is grounded in this play between whimsy and reality.
