Eclectic, colorful and electric, the Roth Bar at Hauser & Wirth is a work of art.
For art lovers and collectors, designers, aesthetes, or those looking for an event space downtown - it’s new to the rental market and a unique opportunity to host an event inside a unique work of art. The space holds up to 100 for cocktails, and we’re partnering with Hauser & Wirth to to bring delectable seasonal fare to events in this lively space.
The bar itself is made of locally sourced salvaged materials: large metal cranks from an Icelandic fishing barge, vintage TVs, cans of paint…some of them slowly dripping pigment. Electric lights brighten up these quirky materials, drawing the eye all around this fascinating work of art.
The spirited design was created by Björn Roth, Oddur Roth and Einar Roth, whose grandfather was German-born Swiss artist Dieter Roth. Hauser & Wirth is an international gallery with locations in London and Somerset, UK, Zürich, Los Angeles and uptown and downtown NYC. ‘The bar’ was a concept created by Dieter Roth in the early 80s: a dynamic and changing installation. In 1997 for his first exhibition with Hauser & Wirth, Roth wanted a bar to form part of the show. The functional ‘Roth-Bar 2’ was installed around the corner from his Zurich gallery.
