This month, Rock legend David Bowie—along with his alter ego Ziggy Stardust—is being celebrated with a bar in his honor.
Inside of London’s Hotel Cafe Royal, Ziggy’s will establish itself as a playful tribute to Bowie, who famously held the retirement party for Ziggy Stardust there in the 1970s. Adjacent to newly opened restaurant Laurent, helmed by internationally renowned chef Laurent Tourondel, on the first floor, the bar will serve a modern twist on some of Bowie’s favorite drinks plus classics and innovative new creations.
Ziggy’s will offer a range of cocktails inspired both by Bowie’s life and his famous album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars,” with each drink named after a lyric from the record.
In addition, the room will have a curated selection of photography of Bowie by prolific music photographer Mick Rock, who was Bowie’s official photographer during the last years of Ziggy’s career. The selection will include some of the most well-known images of Ziggy alongside some more intimate and rarely seen before photographs.
Ziggy’s will open on Sept. 20.
