Last night, on one of the stickiest nights NYC has seen this summer, the New Museum's top floor was packed with guests celebrating the release of the new special edition Kaws x Hennessy bottle. The door was shut down a half hour after the event started, but the lucky few who made it in were greeted with the sounds of a great hip hop and funk set by the famous Questlove, set against synched video projections playing on the opposite wall. The artist who designed the bottle was making rounds, and everyone was dancing, including the bartenders and cocktail waitresses. We enjoyed some pretty bangin variations on the cognac, including Hennessy Citrus, Hennessy Berry and Hennessy Ginger, but our favorite was crisp Hennessy Apple, garnished with an apple slice. It got late and the heat started to burn off some, and we took our glass outside, joining the party on the museum's luxe wraparound balcony.
