2018 is the year for Wu-Tang Clan as they continue to spread the brand to new heights. At the current time, the memorable emcee’s are in the midst of a world tour for the 25th anniversary of their debut album “Enter THe Wu-Tang Chamber”.
The creative renaissance man of the group known as “RZA”, is making some interesting moves in the world of business. RZA has partnered with the high-end movie theater chain “Alamo Drafthouse”, for a new concept bar set to open in New York’s Staten Island. The venue will be called “The Flying Guillotine, a kung-fu inspired bar concept.
It’s an extreme pleasure to be partnering with Alamo Drafthouse on their Staten Island location. When I first visited Alamo Drafthouse in 2004, I was blown away by the food, drink, and service that accompanied a slew of cool, genre and time-crossing films. The kung fu film selection was my favorite, and the opportunity to see these classics once again on a large screen returned me back to my youth.”
Serving an extensive menu of themed cocktails, spirits, and collaboration beers created by RZA and Alamo Drafthouse’s beverage director Bill Norris, The Flying Guillotine will also include a video store offering free rentals from an exhaustive collection of titles (including martial arts classics personally approved by RZA), as well as an archive of memorabilia and posters that cover the vast span of kung fu film history. Alamo Drafthouse Staten Island will also feature monthly screenings of martial arts classics with after-parties at The Flying Guillotine.
The venue plans to officially open some time in 2019.
