Visitors can order cocktails named after David Bowie’s famous songs!
Ziggy, a bar dedicated to David Bowie, has just opened right inside Café Royal in London’s Soho. During the early 1970s, David Bowie created his own fictitious alter-ego, who became an archetypal character within the world of glam rock. Ziggy Stardust, who was inspired by British rock singer, Vince Taylor, lent his name to a Bowie-themed bar at The Hotel Café Royal. On the menu are cocktails named after song titles off the 1972 album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars”.
Lining the inside walls are photographs taken by Mick Rock of the party hosted at The Hotel Café Royal itself on the eve of July 3rd, 1973, which Bowie threw as a send-off to his Ziggy after the final concert performed as the character.
Photos of A-list icons including Lou Reed, Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney and Barbara Streisand at the 1973 event were revealed at the bar’s opening on September 20th.
