CORTE MADERA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RH (NYSE: RH) announced today the opening of the Champagne & Caviar Bar at the RH Guesthouse New York. Expanding on the unprecedented luxury and privacy of the Guesthouse, guests descend a floor-to-ceiling European white oak staircase to a luminous and alluring 32-seat lounge with iridescent champagne lacquered walls and handblown amber glass ceilings. Italian Calacatta gold marble tables sit atop marble-mosaic floors surrounded by banquettes of camel mohair velvet. Guests will enjoy a curated menu featuring elegant dishes topped with the highest grades of Petrossian Caviar, classic caviar service, a library of the world’s finest Champagnes and Vodkas, plus a select menu of timeless cocktails. The immersive space evokes a quiet jewel box erasing the chaos of the outside world.
RH Chairman & Chief Executive Officer Gary Friedman commented, “The Champagne & Caviar Bar at the RH Guesthouse New York reflects our vision to imagine an alluring space and immersive experience that transports you to both the glamour of secretive and sensual speakeasies of the past, and the most luxurious private lounges and clubs of the present.” Mr. Friedman continued, “Through our multi-year effort to design this extraordinary new concept, we have developed both a passion for and commitment to caviar and have plans to open Champagne & Caviar Bars in Paris, London, and Aspen over the next three years.”
The Champagne & Caviar Bar menu, personally overseen and developed by Mr. Friedman and his Global Culinary Team, has been years in the making and is inspired by RH’s vision to create a caviar experience that respects tradition while reflecting the brand’s unique and modern point of view.
