"The Factory was a space where high and low, rich and poor, black and white, gay and straight came together as one.”
Now, put yourself back in 1962 NYC - Our “neighborhood bar / restaurant / lounge with hidden speakeasy" is subtly referencing the Andy Warhol movement while showcasing modern artful cocktails and craft beers. The Factory 380 serves market fresh creative eclectic fare, fermented grains and cocktails to rocking DJ tunes in a funky decor.
Warhol’s Factory was a congregation of artists and musicians such as Mick Jagger, Lou Reed and Bob Dylan who were the embodiment of edgy sophistication. A collaboration of Warhol and The Velvet Underground & Nico in 1965 led to Warhol designing the band’s debut album featuring an image of a plastic banana. Warhol later went on to design the Rolling Stones’ classic Sticky Fingers album cover.
We set out to create an Old New York and funky modern bar with a secluded speakeasy named “Edie’s” in celebration of THE Factory Girl. Edie Sedgwick was an aspiring actress, model, and artist. She was a wealthy girl who inspired everyone else around her to break out of the ‘every day’ and reach for the stars. She had a unique style and was fascinated by Andy which began one of the most iconic and controversial, yet creative, partnerships in art to date.
BY DAY, a place to relax and eat great food in an artistic environment reminiscent of the cafe society of old New York City.
BY NIGHT, somewhere to sample our creative bill of fare and craft beers while sipping on cocktails and socializing.
"But I always say, one's company, two's a crowd, and three's a party”
