Bar Naná, located on resurgent Gansevoort Street, represents a crafted convergence of two major influences: Punta del Este meets the Second French Empire in Paris. Inspired by both Emile Zola’s classic Nana and the legendary brothel in Punta del Este known simply as “Casa de Naná”, Bar Naná blends South American and French influences to create a uniquely considered nightlife offering in New York.
Zola's novel tells the story of Nana Coupeau’s rise from a streetwalker to a high-class cocotte during the final years of the French Second Empire. The fusion of this influence with that of the Uruguayan coastal resort city of Punta del Este is seen in everything from cocktails (featuring pisco, mate, and rums) to food (with South American favorites such as chorizo empanadas and gnocchi) to design (as seen in the original illustrations from Nana that decorate the walls in sharp contrast to the space's dark South American wood).
With crafted cocktails, exclusive performances, custom uniforms by Olivier Theyskens and a brightly sumptuous design, Bar Naná aims to appeal to an eclectic crowd, with a diverse mix of ages and tastes.
