Ziggy’s will be based in the Hotel Café Royal, where the singer hosted his famous ‘Last Supper’
Back in 1973, David Bowie drew his alter ego Ziggy Stardust to a close at London’s Hotel Café Royal, with a gathering including Lou Reed and Mick Jagger. Always modest, he dubbed it “The Last Supper”.
Now, the hotel is opening a more permanent memorial to the rockstar: a bar aptly named Ziggy’s. The bar will serve drinks inspired by Bowie’s 1972 album The Rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, including cocktails called Darkness and Disgrace (based on a line from the song “Lady Stardust”) and Tigers on Vaseline.
Ziggy’s will also be decorated with rare images by Mick Rock, the singer’s official photographer in 1973, and (ofc) a Bowie jukebox.
“David Bowie played a really important part in Café Royal’s history,” said Fabio Spinetti, the hotel’s bars and beverages manager. “It only seems fitting to provide a homage to one of our most esteemed patrons.”
The Bowie-themed cocktail bar will open September 20.
