A Wrinkle In Time

November 11, 2011 | by Daniel Cox


We love the Undine Barge Club and Castle Ringstetten not only because both were designed by Furness, but also because they have atmosphere in spades. Their interiors belong more to the 19th century than the 21st, with a look that every Victorian-themed bar in Brooklyn filled with taxidermy would envy. That the genuine article still survives is remarkable–it is a testament to Undine’s continuity and respect for tradition.
