Crown
10 Crown Street

"For the past several years, the Stockade District’s oldest house, the stunning stone Tappen House, has sat vacant. On a whim, Exit Nineteen owner John Krenek toured the historic building last October, and bells went off in his head. With his partner, Jamie Nibloch, Krenek has a successful interior design business Spruce Design + Decor, in addition to their high-end home goods emporium in Uptown Kingston. “We’ve never really ventured into the hospitality business but it’s something we always had on the back burner,” Krenek says. The stone building seemed like the perfect place to test out their wings. “A lot of our work is in the city, and we also do a lot of homes up here, but this is our first way of showing public who we are and what we do,” he says. The pair has extensively renovated the interior to create a Parisian cabaret vibe that is “dark, moody, and sexy.” The walls are painted in a sultry brown tone, called Mink, with deep red banquets, gilded accents, and leopard print window dressing. Crown will have 5 separate areas—three indoor and two outdoor, which each have their own intimate vibe and can be reserved individually for parties.

In true lounge style, Crown will have no full dishes, but a carefully curated bar menu—cheese, charcuterie, and chocolate plates; pickles; almonds; and some rotating specials. Add to that a coffee bar, a bespoke cocktail list; and locally sourced wines and beers, and you have yourself a speakeasy. The Crown debuts Friday, July 20 and will be open Mondays and Thursdays 4pm-12am; Fridays and Saturdays 4pm-2am; and Sundays 2-6pm; closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays." Chronogram
