Griffin Opens in the Meatpacking District


UrbanDaddy has your first look at Griffin, opening in the former PM space on Thursday. Design features include enormous unmarked doors, an oversize chandelier attached to a framed-mirror ceiling, blue-velvet banquettes, and a VIP balcony. A couple of Milk & Honey vets are, of course, said to be running the bar, and Guest of a Guest has more on the personnel: The managing partners are Rachel Uchitel (Tao Vegas), Josh Kaiser (Pink Elephant), and Cain’s Hector Longoria (also doorman). Ignacio Cipriani christened the space with a birthday party. We’re thinking a bottle brunch is a near certainty.

Griffin, 50 Gansevoort St; nr. Greenwich St.
