The Garret East Now Open in the East Village

The Garret East Now Open in the East Village

Those that enjoy the popular West Village watering hole The Garret can now get their drink on across town at The Garret East, which opened in the East Village this past week.

Designed by Jeffrey White, the third venture from the folks at Den Hospitality—the other two include the aforementioned Garret as well as dullboy in Jersey City—evokes a sophisticated, and somewhat beach town vibe—complete with ceiling fans and airy, white accents (think whitewashed brick, hand-sculpted stucco and re-purposed mother of pearl), which gives the illusion that the long, narrow space is much bigger than it actually is.

The eclectic mix of décor includes random trinkets—meant to be keepsakes from resident mascot “Rocco” the raccoon’s world travels—as well as several installations that range from provocative to whimsical by street artist Bradley Theodore, illustrator Jimmy Thompson and mixed media artist Ari Hauben

While at the space, patrons can slide into one of the plush wraparound booths or take a seat in the homey “living room” and enjoy one, or more, of the new bar’s creative cocktails, including Hardwood Collins, an enticing mix of white rye, Icelandic Birch, sugar maple, lemon, soda and smoked salt; Banahatta, featuring Rittenhouse rye, Amontillado Sherry, Cardamaro, banana liqueur and Angostura; and Detroit Dancehall, with Rhum Barbancourt Blanc, Rhum Barbancourt 3 Star, beet juice, lime, orgeat, vinegar and a salt rim.

The space also boasts beer, punch bowls and bottled cocktails—the perfect no-spills solution when navigating a crowded bar. For more information, click here.
