Rivington & Sons – Timetravel to the ’30s

Visit New York, find bits and pieces of classic cocktail bars, ship them back to Switzerland and install everything in the ground floor of Switzerland’s tallest building, the Prime Tower. The concept behind Hotel Rivington & Sons’ interior design sounds bizarre – but step through the doors and you’ll instantly see that all the hard work paid out.

The mirrored walls, the retro lighting, the classic bar counter, the talented bartenders, the professionally mixed cocktails – every piece fits together in creating a 30’s retro atmosphere. It’s even common to hear people discussing how beautiful the (also imported) toilets are. And they are.

The ‘Hotel’ part of the name is more of a pun – you won’t find any rooms here. It’s a reference to prohibition times when speakeasies had to hide their true character. And the overall vibe really does make you feel like you’ve just stepped into another age. You’ll soon find yourself ordering an old-fashioned Bourbon Highballand letting your mind drift through a world of the past glory…
