At The Anchor, Sharing Is Caring

At The Anchor, Sharing Is Caring

When you cram four 20-something women into a tiny NYC apartment for a weekend reunion, you quickly learn the meaning of sharing. We coped with just two mirrors and two beds, coordinated the use of a single blow dryer, mixed and matched shoes and dresses, and relished in shared bottles of wine and brunch platters. This yours-is-mine groove continued on a Saturday during our girls’ night out at The Anchor, a recently revamped bar in the South Village that boasts a star-studded clientele and a lineup of excellent DJs every weekend. We snagged a table in the corner of the upscale tavern around 11:30 p.m., where we shared the crown of The Anchor’s cocktail menu: a punchbowl. My college friends and I may have been sipping out of dainty glass mugs, but this was no tea party—the punch certainly had us ready to dance by the last glass. While the server refused to reveal the secret ingredients in our fruity cocktail, it tasted akin to some of The Anchor’s other offerings: Sea Shanty Punch, a mix of Champagne, brandy, oranges, lemons, limes, pineapple and strawberries, and The Anchor Power Punch, made with Bacardi 151, Bacardi Silver, coconut rum, pineapple, oranges, limes and grenadine. The punch bowls are intended to serve up to 12 people, so bring some friends and get there early on weekend nights.
