A famous, swanky NYC bar has recently opened an outpost on Amoy Street. It is fronted by ex-Marine and bartender Steve Schneider, a veteran of the US bar scene and star of Hey Bartender, a cocktail documentary. The much-lauded bar and restaurant, which ranked #4 on the World’s 50 Best Bars list in 2015 is just like its New York flagship with its stylish and modern interiors reminiscent of the Prohibition era.
The all-important cocktail menu has highlights like the EO Gimlet, made with Perry’s Tot Navy Strength gin and lime cordial, and Ready Aim Fire, a mix of mezcal, lime juice, honey-pineapple syrup and Hellfire Bitters. On the kitchen front, options range from a strong variety of meat, seafood, pasta, burgers and salad dishes, such as the roasted trout, bone marrow poppers and EO Dry Aged Burger. Late-night offerings are available till 2am, and there are plans to include tacqueria items too.
You can expect raucous late-night partying and friendly hospitality—the last batch of revelers will be served warm cups of chicken soup upon closing.
