It’s a class-based system here in Bushwick, once the drug dealing capital of America and now a haven for the trust fund children of Southern royalty. Three Diamond Door poses as the perfect watering hole for new era Bushwick, where rich kids can flock, but pay lesser prices so as to feel just a little bit better about all the parental backing they’re using toward rent.
Now that the dog thefts have calmed down with the winter upon us and the backyard imminently about to close, an enterprising employee of the bar, Perry Kisazz, a 24-year-old from Tennessee, brought the concept of opening a speakeasy lounge in the bar (somewhat tantamount to a boutique hotel within a boutique hotel) to his boss.
“You know, I just kind of became aware of the disparity between how much some customers are willing to pay versus others, so I thought, ‘Why note create a separate, classier space for the high rollers?’” This idea was immediately embraced, prompting construction on the secret alcoholic hideaway of the bar, which, of course requires a password that changes on a nightly basis. “The minimum spending amount for the night is $1,000 if you want to get in. Obviously, we’re going to be serving only top shelf liquor at that price, which really makes your hangover almost nonexistent the next morning,” concluded Kisazz.
