LOST SPIRITS -A Dashing Prohibition Era Rekindled

by | Mar 1, 2023

Imagine strolling into an unassuming, seductive venue moderately lit by candlelight. The sultry and tantalizing space features exposed brick, leather banquets, reclaimed wood garnished with Edison light bulbs strung over lofty ceilings, and large flat-screen TVs. The euphoria of a 1920s jazz lounge fuels intimate revivalism and a desire to embark on a pleasing experience of remembrance of the Prohibition Period.

Most of us have only experienced the Prohibition Era vicariously through books, fashion and movies such as the “Great Gatsby.” A dashing time that gave birth to the Charleston Jazz age, bootleggers, gangsters, and the ultimate glitz and glam era better known as the “Roaring Twenties.” Lost Spirits, a high-energy cocktail bar, offers a boozy escape with all of the allure and enticement of the past.

The Night

A Prohibition Era 1920s-inspired drink menu was the cat’s meow at an eventful press event on Tuesday, February 21st, at their Flatiron District location. Showcasing signature drinks and hors d’oeuvres galore, Lost Spirits left no leaf unturned.

Dozens of media professionals, including food writers, editors and industry experts, delighted in crowd-pleasing signature and classic cocktails, wine, beer and small plates utilizing locally sourced produce (from Union Square Market).

Live tunes provided by guest DJ Greg Grooves entranced guests into a seductive sway in the venue’s large back room. At the same time, the kitchen delivered round after round of shareable small plates, including grilled dry rub wings and crispy chicken sliders.

Full-size entrees like Mediterranean dips, including hummus, baba ganoush, red pepper, loaded dirty fries with chicken bacon, shrimp, pickled onions, chili remoulade, a smashed burger, and more, were escorted throughout the evening. The most popular Lost Spirits’ evening cocktails included the highly requested Bootleggers Bramble made with vodka, blackberry, lemon, St. Germain, and basil, and charming Giggle Water with tequila, pineapple, lime, cassis, cucumber.

Lost Spirits, which opened in November 2022, is owned by Tamer Mahmoud, the former Director of Operations for The Lure Group, and Ron Rodrigo, owner and operator of Rated R management. This charming and intimate Flatiron venue is perfect for up to 100 guests. Offering a cozy montage of the period’s hedonism, excitement and unprecedented freedom.
