Seaworthy in New Orleans: An 1832 Cottage Turned Oyster Bar, Nautical Edition
Inside, a long bar stretches along one wall, and plaster walls add a sense of the time-worn. “Seaworthy is a gumbo of materials from far-flung corners of the world—zinc and steel, tarnished silver, blue and white china, dark wood, marble, milk glass, Hungarian encaustic tile and brass,” according to the design brief. Ingredients from saffron to mint are delivered daily in wooden crates.
The concept of design assumed two halls - a bar and a salon directly, both white, which were connected by a black corridor, that there was a bathroom and utility rooms The accent of the establishment was a metal arch, which we left from the original building. We cleaned it, painted it and modernized it. Also there can not be unnoticed a custom chandelier above the bar, which consists of balls and copper. This is how copper and the combination of white and black create the tone of this space

This speakeasy is located below Schapiro's, a New American eatery with a Jewish twist. You have to go down a set of stairs to a basement to get to the bar, but once you're inside you'll see this is the perfect date spot. Intimate, provocative, and dark. Nitecap offers over 20 pages of drinks - try the Moon Suit or the Tartan Swizzle - and relax while reading their funny guides strewn about the bar. Nitecap, 120 Rivington St
