Welcome to Riff Raff’s, the funky new Tiki-themed club in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. Celebrated by pretty party people Josh Harnett and Theodora Richards, the new club just opened last Wednesday, with pseudo twin DJs Andrew Andrew helming the music.
Operated by Hari Kalyan from The Randolph, Riff Raff’ describes itself as specializing in "over-the-top Polynesian presentations while also offering tchotchkes of all shapes and sizes, including coconut bras, Etro pocket squares, and customized neon orange Wayfarer sunglasses."
Boasting an eclectic, laissez-faire design scheme, featuring everything from embroidered walls imported from a Malaysian village to a neon tiger and a glinting disco ball, the new bar in the basement of The Hurricane Club on Park Avenue is sure to let you swill in eccentric style.
Rumor has it they also serve group-sized rum cocktails in plastic flamingos adorned with sparklers.
