On Friday the 19th September 2008 La Fée was invited to participate in an event at Mad46 – the rooftop bar at the Roosevelt Hotel on Madison Avenue, 46th St – introducing guests to the green fairy whist watching the sun set over the Manhattan skyline.
Mad46 is accessed through the back door to the Roosevelt Hotel. A series of security guards as well as a service lift gives you an initial impression of a top secret underground bunker before opening out onto a wonderful open rooftop bar. On Friday, La Fée infiltrated this secret bunker to bring guests a taste of the green fairy.
Dan and Oscar were on hand with the La Fée fountain offering guests a chance to try the traditional serve as well as some more contemporary cocktails including Domain de Canton ginger liqueur, La Fée and lime juice shaken over ice.
The event was a fantastic success with some great feedback from customers and staff who started to see a slightly green hue appearing over the evening as the sun set and the absinthe flowed.
