This $13.5 Million Bar Was Born For Fancy Friday Happy Hours

New, 12 comments

The story of how this magnificent bar got created goes something like this. In 2002, a famous very wealthy attorney named Blair Fensterstock bought a Ritz-Carlton condo in Battery Park City for $3.3 million. Then, four years later, he picked up the apartment downstairs for another $2.3 million. Enter a renovation, spearheaded by Danish designer Bjorn Bjornsson. That combo resulted in a 5,000-square-foot duplex with five bedrooms and six bathrooms and a massive walnut-paneled "entertainment room" with the glorious private watering hole pictured above. Which, by the way, comes fully equipped with fancy gear—"a Franke sink, Miele dishwasher, U-line refrigerator and Scotsman icemaker"—and climate-controlled wine storage for 600 bottles. (That brand-name icemaker, by the by, costs a few grand.) Fensterstock must have had his fair share of nightcaps by now, so he just put the place on the market for $13.525 million.
