New restaurant Harlow, in New York, is a realisation of owner Richie Notar’s vision for an alluring and stylish clubhouse vibe, and was created by the design team at Meyer Davis Studio.
The striking interior, with a sultry blue and grey colour palette, is a blend of Hollywood glamour and sophisticated mischief, and incorporates many eye-catching highlights. These include a grand marble oyster bar complete with a mirrored back bar that features an exquisite hand-painted aquatic scene; a conservatory room flooded with natural light and bordered by an interior wall of cascading ivy, perfect for intimate gatherings over cocktails and private parties; contemporary art installations in the parlour and bar areas, including an original Andy Warhol that guests can appreciate when first entering the restaurant.
Original stained glass windows and dramatic chandeliers adorn the main dining room, all of which date back to the 1930s when actress Marion Davies used the space for personal entertaining (the building was a gift to her from William Randolph Hearst). Reveal Design Group worked with Meyer Davis Studio to create a new lighting layout which balances old and new.
Upon entering Harlow, after passing by an original Andy Warhol, guests will arrive into the high-ceilinged parlour space to plush club chairs and banquette couches throughout the room, which seats approximately 60.
In the centre of the parlour room is the large white leather bar which seats 10 for cocktails or dining. Tucked behind the bar is the light-filled conservatory that seats approximately 20 guests, and which is studded with plush purple seats facing a long comfortable white leather banquette, which is perfect for one-on-one cocktails or a private dinner party. The main dining room, which seats 100, creates the perfect mood for guests to relax and enjoy seafood-focused fare inspired by global flavours.
