Your summer drinking plans are now sorted.
After much anticipation, Remy’s Deep Dish Pizza has officially begun its renovations for its basement bar The Cloakroom and plans to open its doors to the public this Summer.
Imagine this: you enter a secret entrance, which is a Narnia-style doorway at the back of a wardrobe, before descending down three flights of stairs. This is exactly the vision for The Cloakroom.
You will then be taken into a different world, with the speakeasy basement bar boasting of special lighting, intimacy with just 50 person capacity and house party vibes.
The special entryway is a nod to the Barlow Room, a secret bar where you enter through a fireplace, which previously resided in the same space.
The Cloakroom is also an LGBTQI+ safe space.
It’s the third venue by Josh Rivers – who also owns CREAM and Remy’s – who said it’s an inclusive space for all walks of life.
“The Cloakroom will be a homeage to all the clubs that made me feel comfortable in myself as a young, not-out LGBT community member in a different time that wasn’t acceptable as today,” Josh Rivers shared on CREAM’s Facebook page.
“Those clubs didn’t care who I was or who I liked, they just wanted to provide a good time, night in and night out, and The Cloakroom is going to be exactly that.”
The opening comes with popular demand. Every week, a few dozen people are asking about the space, which is still roped off and being prepared.
With dancing currently off the cards, the club is waiting to open in the future when restrictions ease and in time for Summer 21-22. That way we can enjoy a dance, party and its special themed nights.
