Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
For this week’s Friday Fête, Whitewall takes you through some of this week’s events, including celebrations with The Standard, Hennessy, and more.
Last Wednesday, The Standard opened its latest property in London—its first international space following five locations in the U.S. After an intimate dinner at Isla—the new restaurant owned by Adam Rawson, designed by Shawn Hausman—a summer party filled the ground floor, through the Double Standard bar and library lounge. Special guests—like Angela Dimayuga, Tessa Thompson, Lily Allen, and Skepta—gathered for festive cocktails, later surprised with a special performance by musician Dev Hynes, who played hits likes Take Your Time and Holy Will.
And this Wednesday night at Industria Studios in New York, we joined Hennessy for a special celebration with contemporary graffiti artist Felipe Pantone and musician A$AP Ferg. The night welcomed the brand’s new Very Special Limited Edition created with Pantone’s artistic vision, with a reimagined cocktail by the musician called The Dimensional. Now available online, the new bottle and overall feel followed Pantone’s artistic vision for his original W-3 Dimensional Three Stars piece. And available on August 1 is the Felipe Pantone x A$AP Ferg REMIXED Cocktail Kit, including the new bottle, as well as recipes and ingredients to recreate the new cocktail at home.
This weekend, we’re stopping by the Wythe Hotel to welcome Lemon—the hotel’s new rooftop bar. Food and beverage pairings are revealed by an all-star lineup of collaborators—Jon Neidich and Golden Age Hospitality (Acme, The Happiest Hour, Slowly Shirley) conceived the concept with acclaimed chefs Aidan O’Neal and Jake Leiber. And beverage gurus Jim Kearns (Happiest Hour, Slowly Shirley) and Christine Kang (Soho House) created the ideal cocktails for the warm months ahead. The space, bright and inviting for the festive summer ahead, features food and beverage that capture the European aperitivo culture from the 1960s. At the new spot, music curated by Chances With Wolves plays while guests enjoy the Manhattan skyline and food and beverage pairings.
