Debuting East47, A Bespoke Cocktail Bar In A Bar
Amidst the buzzing atmosphere of Manhattan lies East47, an enigmatic fine drinking bar that blends cocktails, gastronomy and imagination for the perspicacious drinker. This one-room revolution is an exclusive enclave inspired by Andy Warhol’s iconic Silver Factory on East 47th Street, known for its groundbreaking gatherings of the 1960s’ cultural avant-garde. Like its muse, East47 is conceived as a cocktail studio for today’s luminaries.

East47 is a dynamic playground for the bartender community, hosting residencies and exclusive experiences that foster innovation and collaboration. Blending modern luxury with artistic rebellion, East47 draws from New York’s vibrant art and fashion scene from the late 60s to the early 80s. Designed by Matthew Shang Design Office, the intimate 12-seater space is adorned with silver foil-like wallpaper, undulating stainless steel details, and Barovier and Toso Opera Venetian crystal lights, creating an atmosphere that is both reflective and intimate.

East47 is by invitation only, promising an unparalleled level of exclusivity and personalised service.
