The Raven Owner Henry Stimler Dishes On His NYFW Hot Spot

by Stephanie Maida · September 5, 2013

The Raven Well, it's impossible not to make an Edgar Allen Poe reference when introducing the newest hot spot to take over 55 Gansevoort, The Raven. With its lush leather sofas, Baroque-print walls textured with velvet, and lithe ladies floating around serving drinks in mod-goth mini dresses, the subterranean space seems like just the type of place Mr. Poe would go to indulge in some absinthe and opium, though top-shelf liquor will just have to do for us. While Henry Stimler's newest venture hasn't even technically opened yet, The Raven is already a fashion crowd favorite, hosting parties for VFiles, Fashion & Style, and even Rita Ora. We had a drink with the British club owner and talked Poe, poetry, and the importance of Instagram marketing.
