Rose Bar has enjoyed several years of being the place in New York City. Beautiful space good drinks, great music and a great crowd established Rose Bar as the creme de la creme of nightlife. But is that all over? Last week, new blogger Chipping Mademoiselle detailed a battle of promoters inside Rose Bar fighting to have the most girls at their table, just the sort of scene that Nur kept out. Then, a Little Birdy confirms the death of the Rose Bar scene, saying:
Sadly several friends of mine have been noticing a horrible new trend at Rose in the past few weeks, promoter tables on the real - not like the cool owners or the occasional good promoter mingling, like straight up promoter tables with not like known models but 18 year olds fresh to the city. I was there with regulars last night who actually flipped their shit over it so it’s definitely NOT well received by the good patrons who have been loyal for over a year now.
So the tables once filled with celebs, artists and the glitterati is now just filled with promoters and model wranglers who are there to set the scene, making Rose Bar a beautiful bar with expensive art and drinks and the same old crowd. Is Ian so wrapped up with his Marriott deal that he has turned his eye away from home base? Since we love Rose's laid back vibe and great scene, we certainly hope not.
