Dolly Parton is the inspiration behind a new hotspot in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Released 50 years ago by the country music legend and recently covered by hip hop superstar Lil Nas X, Parton’s goddaughter Miley Cyrus and jazz singer Wendy Moten, “Jolene” is the name of a fancy new watering hole opening to the public this weekend at the First location of the Moxy hotel chain in Brooklyn at 353 Bedford Ave.
The 150-person space is “reminiscent of the nightclubs of the ’70s and ’80s.” according to the creators of Joleneand is accented with bold textures, modular furniture, and a lighted ceiling.
Guests will enjoy state-of-the-art audio in the “retro-themed high-energy room” inspired by the 10-time Grammy winner’s “fierce and femininity.”
“This is the place to dance, drink, relax and be completely yourself to the sound of the best music,” said Elad Zvi of Bar Lab Hospitality, who collaborated with Moxy to create the unique space. The consultant also worked with the hotel in the lobby cocktail bar, Bedford Puband rooftop lounge, LilliStar.
Jolene’s opening weekend lineup of artists includes DJ Delish, Kels, Shawn Dub, Analog Soul, Eli Scobar and Haruka.
