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. Try it for yourself.
