‘Nautical luxury’ cocktail lounge and ‘Dive Bar’ open in Mystic
24 Mar 2022
Blood-red curtains, brass fixtures and a chandelier hang in the street-level lounge, atop teak floorboards made from the deck boards of the Joseph Conrad, a ship now at Mystic Seaport Museum. Fancy glassware sits on the "Million Mile Bar," made of wood reclaimed from the Charles W. Morgan, the last remaining wooden whaleship.
It's all very fitting for a place that wants to pay homage to local maritime culture while being part of the national conversation on great cocktail bars and wanting people to feel like they're visiting international coastal cities.
