"Itz a Hard Knock Life" Party at Dove Parlour

228 Thompson Street (btwn Bleeker and 3rd)
Wed. February 10, 2010

New York Magazine:


“Some people say it looks like New Orleans, some say it looks like a bordello. I say it looks like my grandmother’s apartment,” says the Dove’s co-owner Jen Armstrong. In lieu of unseemly follow-up questions about granny’s profession, let it just be said that the broad’s got taste. Located a few steps below the street, the façade of white windowpanes gives way to a candlelit room with red velvet wallpaper, a Victorian ceiling mold, and a fireplace full of candles. An impressive drink menu boasts classics like sidecars and Champagne cocktails, plus tasty originals like the dastardly Rum Tea (white rum, honey, fresh citrus juices). The libations are served on dainty doilies in lieu of paper napkins to a smart but unpretentious crowd of young, artsy locals who appreciate the wide array of wines by the glass. In a neighborhood fraught with frat caps and tourist traps, the Dove is an excellent find. Like the House of the Rising Sun, it could be the ruin of many a girl or boy."




"Dark and moody, elegant and anachronistic, Dove Parlour is the bar most likely to make you afraid you're going to accidentally break something. Not that it's littered with carefully placed artifacts, but a dive bar this is most certainly not. The luxurious Victorian-inspired space is adorned with plush couches, striking red velvet wallpaper and a fireplace filled with candles, all designed to replicate a vintage New York City brownstone parlor room."

Quotes from the man himself:


"A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight."


"Illusion is the first of all pleasures."


"Anybody can be good in the country. There are no temptations there."

A perfectly healthy sentence, it is true, is extremely rare. For the most part we miss the hue and fragrance of the thought; as if we could be satisfied with the dews of the morning or evening without their colors, or the heavens without their azure. - Henry David Thoreau
