Once a commercial airliner is now a popular cocktail bar located next to New York's JFK airport. Nicknamed Connie, the former TWA 1958 lockheed constellation strainer airplane is a swanky blast from the past.

A contrast between a scene from an Austin Powers movie to the red aesthetic paradise of a 70s bachelor pad, this portable cocktail bar offers more than meets the eye.

FROM DESIGNBOOMVintage details such as cocktail swords, mid-century board games and the iconic TWA red carpet allow guests to travel back in time to when the TWA terminal opened in 1962. Led by stonehill taylor’s sara duffy, the interior staging combines a good mix of vintage and modern furnishings. The middle section of the plane is replaced by modern suede sofa seats along the window side of the plane to create a wider passage way for guests to access the bar. Towards the back of the plane, six passenger seats are styled by Aaron Sciandja, who designed the vintage-inspired setback pockets and seat covers to resonate the 1960s aesthetics. The passenger seats, paired into three rows, are provided with enough leg room to include a side table for guests to place their drinks on.
