About Events with Sel Rrose Montauk
Opened in June 2019, Sel Rrose Montauk finds owner Kristin Vincent venturing out of her comfort zone in the Lower East Side of Manhattan (where all three of her other bars are located) and opening her doors in the seaside getaway town of Montauk. The newest addition to Vincent’s portfolio of cool bars (alongside Figure 19 and Home Sweet Home) is the perfect expansion of Sel Rrose Manhattan where a cool Downtown fashion crowd, the art world and avant-garde professionals linger over natural wines, cocktails and fresh oysters.Building off her obsession with Rrose Selavy – Marcel Duchamp’s female alter ego, who inspired the Manhattan flagship – Vincent was inspired by Duchamp’s unlikely friendship to Salvador Dali while creating Sel Rrose Montauk. It was Duchamp and Dali’s summers on the South coast of Spain – in a fishing village not unlike Montauk – that these two very opposite personalities solidified an intimate and lasting friendship over beach trips, dinner parties, social gatherings and glasses of the finest wine. Taking this o heart, Vincent created a space that holds the same spirit as her downtown venues but in the relaxed salty air of Montauk.
