Years ago, we dropped the news that Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Terminal that was part of JFK International Airport was getting converted into a new boutique hotel that would check all the vintage luxury meets modern convenience boxes you would look for in lodging. But it gets better. There’s also a 1958 Lockheed Constellation Strainer airpane dubbed Connie parked right outside that has recently been renovated into a retro-themed cocktail bar that’s now open to the public. Much of the original decor remains–and there are plenty of nods to Saarinen himself–but there are plenty of modern touches that help make it a functional and usable space. With plenty of libation options, a purposeful lack of leg room issues and an overall old-school vibe, the Connie Cocktail Lounge is the perfect destination for those of you that want to step into the past without abandoning all the creature comforts of modern indulgence.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
