We’ve been waiting a long time to see what the boys at Death and Company could possibly do to follow up the incredible success they’ve had with their cocktail concoctions on East 6th Street. Time proved the rumors to be true, ambulance and the recently opened, viagra long anticipated, Demi Monde is making a name for itself on Stone and Broad Street.

Owners David Blatt, David Kaplan, and Alex Day created Demi Monde’s menu with all of the elements you’d expect from these cocktail mixing wunderkinds. Drinks with brow-raising names like “Jewel Box” and the “Wolf Tone,” and concepts like the collection of “house sodas” are of the taste and quality to be counted on from such a reputable group. Along with the drink list is a special chef’s table handled by Chef Philip Kirschen-Clark (formerly of Vandaag). Make a reservation in advance to have your place at one of the 12 seats– the chef’s table serves a nine-course tasting menu only once per night promptly at 8p.m.

Designed and branded by Warren Red (The Rum House, Tribeca Loft, The Tough Club), the space easily connects with the curious name he gave it. ‘Demimonde’ is a euphemism that was commonly used to refer to a wealthy and hedonistic group, indulging in drinking, gambling, and lascivious behaviors during the time of the speakeasy. Whatever your lifestyle outside of the lounge, you’ll certainly feel its aesthetic within. Glossy red paneled walls, classic black leather banquettes, plush draping, and yellow accents are offset by kinbaku-inspired screens that would make Christian Gray feel at home. Demi Monde is a welcome departure from the stuffiness of the Financial District. Its juxtaposition of leather and ropes with the surrounding suits and office buildings only furthers Red’s attempt to brand the lounge as a hangout for the “demimondes” of Manhattan.
