Forget about the Pepsi! Kola House, the newest spot to grace Meatpacking, the city's trendiest spot, is owned in part by none other than Pepsi, and features an inventive menu and many beverage choices. After being checked in outside before being let into the clubby atmosphere for the private event - they have to make sure to keep up their standards of famous faces - I immediately noticed cool gold wallpaper and artsy wall decor. With a stage in the back room, I heard intimate concerts featuring Ellie Golding and other A-list events have been held here.
You'll definitely be ready for a long night of partying if you kick off your evening here - Kola House incorporates the kola nut into both food and drinks for a natural boost of caffeine - who knew?! While the bartenders mixed signature drinks including a rum infused cocktail which looked like it was on fire with steam coming out of it, I sampled some of the kola-infused steak and chicken tacos. No wonder I had so much energy by the time I left!
It's no surprise the 'in' crowd including famous bloggers were invited to the Kola House's debut party, so was excited to be introduced to Danielle Bernstein of the ultimate fashion site, WeWoreWhat. Of course we had to pose for a selfie, and even got to take home a bottle of vintage Ginger Cola. Oh, and there was also a wall of gold cola bottles - top that!
