Have you ever longed to feel like one of Andy Warhol’s legendary muses?
The Factory 380, a new restaurant and speakeasy lounge in Gramercy, pays tribute to Warhol’s Union Square studio with decor inspired by the storied New Yorker’s pop art era. The restaurant's name references its location at 380 Third Ave and Warhol’s studio—once dubbed The Factory.
You won’t find any Campbell’s Soup cans or Marilyn Monroe portraits here. Instead, you’ll dive back into the '70s alongside walls lined with Warhol-esque graffiti, including the frankly iconic quote, “But I always say, one's company, two's a crowd and three's a party.”
The drink menu also holds hidden messages for fans, like the 33 USW—a mix of gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup, crème de cassis and soda—referencing one of Warhol’s Factory locations at 33 Union Square West. The food takes a culinary tour of New York City, with menu items like Eggplant Parmigiana Fritters, Chinatown Dumplings, Lamb Barbacoa Tacos and Coney Island nuts for dessert.
A rotary phone in the back leads to a full-on Studio 54-inspired speakeasy named after Warhol muse and actress Edie Sedgwick. And what '70s lounge would be complete without a glittery silver disco ball?
The venue also promises to offer boozy graffiti and sketch classes in the coming months for modern day New Yorkers to embrace their inner Warhol.
