Try These New Bars Coming to New York City This Spring

by Kerry Jepsen on Apr 12, 2017 in Roundups

The landscape of New York City bars and restaurants is ever-changing — it’s one of the things that makes The Big Apple so big and delicious. With such a wide array to choose from, sometimes a New Yorker can get overwhelmed. Drink NYC is here with a roundup of bars to check out that have just opened and some that we look forward to seeing in the future.

Roth Bar
Roth Bar is run by the grandsons of famed artist Dieter Roth, making its location in Chelsea super appropriate. The decor of Roth Bar might as well be an installation in and of itself, as the entire space is adorned with a mix and mash of salvaged material to create one of the more interesting interiors for a bar in New York. A must stop for the gallery peepers on foot in Chelsea, Roth Bar is as tantalizing on the eyes as it is on the tongue. (548 W 22nd St.)

Sugar East
Self described as “true to the age of the decadent Havana high life,” Sugar East has resurrected the spirit of Hemingway and Bergman in the creation of this new concept bar in the Upper East Side. Tapas by Chef Stephen Lyle of Odeon match perfectly with cocktails by Jeremy Strawn from The Mulberry Project, and this bar further prove its dedication to the period by allowing smoking (it’s one of only seven bars in the city that does). (1125 1st Ave.; 212-832-4610)

Motel Morris
Homey, comfortable, and unpretentious meets astoundingly creative food and cocktails at Motel Morris. Brand new to Chelsea yet sure to be the next neighborhood meeting house, Motel Morris has all the friendly atmosphere as a local diner, but without the greasy spoon vibe. innovative bites pair perfectly inspired cocktails, which are sure to suit any kind of drinker. (132 7th Ave.; 646-880-4810)

Chillhouse
New York has seen the very first of its kind in Chillhouse: a bar, a cafe, a salon and spa. Drinks are separated into two sections, ‘Turn Me On’ and ‘Wind Me Down,’ so whatever your mood, Chillhouse is prepared to cater. An array of cafe classics, herbals teas, beer and wines are available at Chillhouse alongside a selection of dainty spa snacks, so if you’re in the mood for a Sunday afternoon massage and a glass, it turns out there’s a place for that. (149 Essex St.; 646-678-3501)

The Spaniard
New to the West Village is The Spaniard, brought to you by the same team behind the beloved Wilfie and Nell, The Wren, and Penrose. While The Spaniard may not pen itself as a whiskey bar, having over 100 selections of whiskey from around the world kind of makes it one by default. That being said, there’s more to The Spaniard than just whiskey - try the ‘Second Serve,’ a curious combination of montenegro, fine sherry, and lime. (190 W 4th St.; 212-918-1986)

Until Tomorrow
New to Clinton Hill, Until Tomorrow is casual yet refined. Tattooed bartenders are unafraid to host a 90s heavy metal night and are always good for some bar talk, but make no mistake — as casual as it is, the food and drink here are for real. Great for a solo night on the town, stop by and try the Donkey Kong, currant infused rum with bananas brûlées and a dusting of espresso powder. (507 Myrtle Ave., Brooklyn; 347-987-4181)
