Rrose Sélavy = Sel Rrose?


The name Sel Rrose is inspired by Marcel Duchamp's alter-ego, Rrose Sélavy. Read straight, the bar's name translates to "pink salt", but the word rrose is a play on the word eros. Duchamp picked the name Rrose Sélavy as a phonetic pun, derived from a phrase of his creation, "Eros, c'est la vie" meaning "Eros, that's life."
