Nestled on the ground floor of the New York’s historic Woolworth Building (the city’s tallest building from 1913 until 1930) is a private event space aptly named The Wooly. Native New Yorker and owner Eric Adolfson—whose father has worked in the building as a lawyer for as long as Eric can remember — runs the space as a restaurant during business hours — and opens up the spot late night for private events. Slowly but surely, he’s turning this currently low-key space into something much bigger. The Wooly recently hosted a super lock-down event hosted by Interscope Records for Lady GaGa, a party for fashion line Ruffian, an after party for LES gallery Invisible Exports, and rumor has it that indie band Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros will play in the space early this year. With no plans to make it a public space, your only hope of getting inside is scoring an invite. See you at The Wooly.
