Rock Lives On

Posted by on March 23, 2011 in Projects | 4 comments

I recently stopped by new Greenwich Village neighborhood joint Rockography, where as the name implies, rock lives on. Cool features by Andrew Alford of Dirty Lines Design include a 23-foot zinc-topped bar made from Marshall electric guitar amplifiers, walls covered in vintage rock posters, and a host station built from a working stage speaker. But the restaurant truly takes the name to heart. The brainchild of the guys behind Trust3 Hospitality—Kelley Jones, Josh Kaiser, and Joe Vicari—with the help of New York restaurateur and venture capitalist David M. Smith, rock references are not just in the design. Drinks are inspired by famous song titles like Comfortably Numb, the menu from chef Ted Cipollone features comfort food like deep fried PB&Js fit for groupies, and TVs throughout play hours of never-seen-before archived concert footage from some of the greats. Calling all rock fanatics!

  1. Nice report, the original CBGB's is down there too, it's a fashion store now but they kept the floor and original fittings, if walls could talk…

    Also, if you want to see where Keith Richards buys his bacon and sausage visit Myers of Keswick on Hudson Street. Get a pound of the Cumberland, it's magic and you only have to follow keef's diet to look great and keep rockin'.

    Cheers,

    Andy.
