Time Out Says

An eclectic vintage speakeasy inspired by '60s singer-actress Marianne Faithfull.

When Marianne’s first opened in 2013, it was maddeningly exclusive: only members—namely, investors and well-heeled friends of the owners—could gain access to the weekly-changing key code at the door. Thankfully, in 2016 the policy was loosened to let in the public. Now sophisticated tipplers can gain entry with a reservation and a $25 deposit. Head down the alleyway adjacent to Hotel Zetta until you see the pink door to your left. Inside, the candlelit, 20-seat bar is elegant and cozy, decked out by designer Ken Fulk with oil paintings, banquettes, fresh flowers and taxidermy. (It’s far from stuffy: guests are encouraged to nab decks of cards and games lining the bookshelf.) Cocktails are named after throwback songs—Major Top, Purple Rain, Freedom—with the soundtrack to match.
