Strahan to Open His
First NYC Lounge
In Touch has exclusively learned that Live! with Kelly and Michael host Michael Strahan is set to open a lounge in Chelsea, The Leonora, later this summer. The cocktail lounge is a collaboration between Strahan, NYC late-night royalty Noel Ashman, photographer Patrick McMullan, producer Michael Bregman, and actors Luis Guzman and Joey McIntyre.
We’re told to expect exposed brick walls adorned with a seasonally rotating selection of McMullen photographs. Waitstaff will wear uniforms designed by Haute Hippie. The inspired decor will represent a fusion of the decadent, risqué decor of historic Weimar, Berlin and a more modern aesthetic. The 12-foot-high bar comes from the 1800s, and luxe leather banquettes in purple and oxblood will provide comfy seating to guests.
We're looking forward to the official opening date!
