February 13th is Mistress Day â€“ Take her to Lanternâ€™s Keep
â€œWalk up the stone steps, through the glass doors, across the lobby, and there you will find it: Lanternâ€™s Keep, nestled deep inside the Iroquois Hotel walls.â€
February 13th is Mistress Day and if you are that guy looking for a cool and private place to bring your lover then this is one place we recommend. Of course itâ€™s also the perfect intimate spot to bring your friend, wife or girlfriend for Valentineâ€™s Day.
Look no further for Lanternâ€™s Keep â€“ New Yorkâ€™s hottest new cocktail salon inside the Iroquois Hotel, featuring a warm setting and gorgeous fireplace, is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. This hidden gem showcases hand-crafted cocktails by the charming head bartender, Theo Lieberman, as well as small plates and European wines. Inspired by the Temperance movement, blends such as the â€œNew Yorker Highball,â€ â€œPoetâ€™s Dream,â€ â€œJungle Bird,â€ and â€œHoneymoonâ€ will transport you back in time.
Aside from his dashing good looks, Theo is a self-proclaimed â€˜Cocktail Geekâ€™ and prides himself in a handful of classic and progressive cocktail recipes, using innovative techniques and the industryâ€™s top bar tools. The gadgets and gismos that this guy has are truly amazing, including a device that can carbonate almost anything! Patrons love coming in, giving their favorite ingredients and watching him magically create a customized confection.
Pinstripe Magazine suggests ordering the Wildest Red Head. Made with fresh lemon juice, honey, Elizabeth Allspice Dram, blended scotch and Cherry Hering you really canâ€™t go wrong with this bitter sweet â€˜heaven in a glassâ€™ creation.
The salon has the feel of a French art or poetâ€™s salon, seating only thirty people, and is constructed with a variety of textured fabrics including velvet blue upholstery on the chairs, marble tables and a dark wooden dÃ©cor. Follow the light of the lantern and step into a salon that is devoted to the art and enjoyment of great tasting cocktails. We suggest that you book your table for two by calling 212-453-4287.
