Thirty deep red birdcages dangle from the ceiling above furniture that is an eclectic mix of worn velvets, leathers, and silky blacks.
Bottle service tables consist of deep red diamond tufted custom sofas, over which hang three giant custom chandeliers with a backlit acrylic image of vintage nude seen behind strands of crystal.
