Conceived by the owner of upstairs neighbor Jacques, and helmed by one of the Contemporary Cocktails crew, 1534's billing itself as a "cocktail sanctuary", a getaway from NYC's ostentatious drinks scene that highlights the flavors & ingredients once popular in France and its colonies; the subterranean den's rocking walls covered in a whitewashed Savannah grassland pattern, checkered flooring covered with large ornate rugs, and a mix of new and antique punch bowls reflecting a theme of "whimsy and global decadence", which sounds like Fabulous Fab, if only he had whimsy.
