Artfully designed Maison Close has arrived in SoHo at 15 Watts Street. By day, visitors will find an open-it cafe with ample outdoor seating. By night, when the curtains are closed it becomes a Manhattan hideaway.
The interior of the space is reminiscent of the "Belle Epoque" era of 20thcentury Europe, incorporating vibrant royal blues, warm dark oranges, and gold and brass hardware. Nods to the "Moulin Rouge" can be found throughout the dining room, from the tulip-shaped banquettes to the collection of exposed bulbs lighting the room from above.
