New York – On Tuesday night, The Line Group and Creative Director Henry Stimler celebrated the grand opening of The Raven; New York City’s exclusive new nightlife destination in the Meatpacking District. Guests danced to the musical stylings of NYC’s nightlife veteran and legend DJ Paul Sevigny while sipping on specialty cocktails by The Macallan, Absolut Elyx and Perrier-Jouet Nuit Blanche.
Boasting a seductive mix of comfort and decadence with a bordello-like feel, The Raven marries the worlds of art, fashion and music to create a provocative subterranean lounge reminiscent of the charm and allure of old New York.
VIP guests including model Natalie White, Yana Tara and Henry Stimler, were spotted wearing limited-edition, custom made ITA Collection cuffs designed by sisters Bita and Rouzita Vahhabaghai. The interlacing leather, metal and calf hair cuffs served as both invitations and access into the exclusive grand opening.
Attending VIP guests included LL Cool J, Paul Haggis, Maxwell, Devyn Abdullah, Natalie White, LaQuan Smith, Scott Lipps, Emory Stewart, Julie Potash (DJ Hesta Prynn), Rachel Heller, Luca Orlandi, Nicki Cozzolino, Moises de la Renta, Jason Strauss, Seth Greenberg and more.
