Get Seen » At the Sinclair’s Opening Party

The Sinclair - the new Harvard Square live-music venue from the Bowery Presents - feted its opening with a music-infused party (naturally) on January 9. Guests sipped pomegranate cocktails and nibbled chickpea fries, sliders, and mini brownies in a space that "pays homage to the transience of musicians," according to the venue's designer, Stephen Martyak. That mash-up of music, design, and style dominated our conversation.

"It's so tough to replicate authenticity," says Martyak, explaining his use of subway tile, vintage furniture, and a reclaimed wooden bar (from a Boston frat, as the story goes) at the Sinclair.

His wardrobe likewise puts fresh twists on classic elements - as was evident from his Cole Haan shoes, A.P.C. jeans from Barneys, Club Monaco tie, Jack Wills shirt, and H&M cardigan with elbow patches.

This interior designer lives and works in 435 square feet in the Fenway, so he knows a thing or two about versatility. He builds his wardrobe around seasonless staples, giving his pieces many lives.

His uniform? A button-down shirt with a V-neck sweater or cardigan, great jeans or colored pants, and a statement shoe.
