Retro rocker Lenny Kravitz’s outlandish Miami home, designed by Michael Czysz (also responsible for the bars Whiskey Park in Las Vegas and Whiskey Sky in San Diego), is the inspiration for a venue coming soon to London’s Notting Hill. The bar, called Genevieve and designed by Sophie Douglas at Fusion, is arranged over three floors with a capacity of 280 (180 seated).
