“Chandeliers that have “crashed” to the floor in dusty corners are among the contributions from Douglas Little, display desinger for Bergdorf Goodman and Van Cleef & Arpels. Little embellished every surface to within an inch of its life, with such courture details as buttefly and beetle wings completely covering a wall and a tabletop. He also created large scenic gestures. The mad Distillery is a bubbling, belching laboratory of a cocktail bar that servces speciality drinks overseen by Rubell. In the restroom, LEDs cycle btween red and blue to pull out two alternating patterns in the wallpaper. So a pleasant William Morris-esque floral transmutes into roiling snakes while you refresh your lip gloss. Transforming a suite of rooms backstage into intimate performance spaces, Little created an ethereal boudoir for the Queen entirely out of white wax, from the “boiserie” to the stalactite ceiling.” — William L.

“Divine Decadence is on the table at Queen of the Night, an almost absurdly deluxe dinner circus nightclub experience,” says by immersive theater king Randy Weiner.
