Late last week, an email was circulated to the team at Rockit Ranch Productions announcing the end to their relationship with the Pump Room Bar. Back in August, Ian Schrager hired Billy Dec and his team to act as "creative consultants" to the bar in the reborn restaurant, but apparently that is now over.
A source close to the situation told Eater they heard the relationship was supposed to remain intact for six months to a year, but it looks to have ended already, not long after the restaurant opened. Dec and his team were apparently hired to help hype the opening and bring people in, but now that it's done, they've parted amicably.
