Lincoln lifted his hat for a private party

25 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Very high anticipated Lincoln restaurant and lounge seemed to have hundreds of people under its roof on Thursday night. O’Neill studios, that renovated and beautified and revamped the whole space, hosted a private viewing event. Free drinks, delicious bites, best-of-the-best decor and atmosphere – what better evening spending you can think of? After such a successful pre-opening party, you can only imagine how overflown it’s going to be on a public opening day!

“Return to the renaissance”  décor is so unique – from all_pennies_floor, “copper” doors, jar “light bulbs”, monochrome paper American flag wall… to ginormous leather chair/sofa, candle chandeliers and misted mirrors.

Maggie O’Neill‘s paintings and Dominique Fierro‘s photography work in the restrooms attracted so much traffic, men into ladies’ and vice versa, those rooms served more as galleries!

Imagine that you come to a museum, and also get the finest food “chefed” by Demetrio Zavala.

Spotted: Maggie O’Neill and her fiancee Chris Roche, Mary Amons of “DC Housewives” with her husband Rich and daughter Lolly, artist Don Patron, Joseph A.Colao III, Erika Paola Gutierrez of epgPR, LLC, Philippa Hughes of “Pink Line Project”, Becky Lee of “Becky’s Fund”, M.Nicole Siobal, Sara Trab Nielsen, Tino Angelov, Tati and Sandro of Art Soiree, Mario De Armas of Lamby Productions, Camelia C.Mazard, Wendy Gordon, Lauri Tamney, Kate Michael, Anchyi Wei and so many more! The owner of the restaurant Alan Popovsky was genuinely missed while being out of town.

Stay tuned for more news, and enjoy the pictures.
