Mother of Pearl Bar & Vegan Restaurant – New York, New York, United States

Mother of Pearl opened in July 2015, replacing another Ravi DeRossi venture, Gin Palace.

Mother of Pearl was known for being a vegan bar with good craft cocktails but with a very (in this case literally) whitewashed sense of what the tiki aesthetic truly is.

The bar featured whitewashed tiki statues as barstools, light blue tiles, a white tin ceiling, and gauzy white curtains that called to mind a light and airy beach cottage more than a dark and brooding tiki bar.

DeRossi filed to redevelop the property and the news broke July 20th, 2020 that DeRossi would be closing Mother of Pearl to accommodate a larger Amor y Amargo. This was partly in response to the Covid crisis and DeRossi was already known for periodically changing up his venues to stay hip and trendy.

They shuttered soon after.
