Joe’s Bar NYC kicked off their grand opening with a bangin’ hit last night on the Upper East Side right on the corner of 480 Amsterdam Ave. on 83rd St. In a city that never sleeps with bars and restaurants flourishing all around, Joe’s Bar NYC has been successful in creating the ideal and hip uptown local bar– with a carefree, but downtown feel that every New Yorker and patron can relate to.
Downtown Magazine was among the guests who supported the grand opening of owner Anthony Serignese’s first venue. The inspired 70’s vibe bar provides the guests with a time machine experience on their night out on the town. The signature Joe’s Hamburger, consisting of a blend of chuck, brisket and short rib beef, was paired with one of their signature cocktails– the Flash Gordon Breakfast; a mix of tequila, cucumber, thai chile, dolin blanc, and mint. Joe’s offers a wide variety of booming cocktail blends. So wide in fact, it’s almost a given that there will be a cocktail that suits your personality for every occasion.
Guests were greeted with champagne as they entered through the grand opening doors, while also enjoying signature craft cocktails throughout the evening. Their cocktail list puts a clever twist its the names, and included favorites such as Night Fever, Scooby Snack, Flash Gordon’s Breakfast and Disco Revival. Joe’s ambiance was energetic, although it had a nice relaxing feel to the presence of people gathered round.
For those of you who are foodies at heart, but have always been searching for that inadvertent cool vibe burger joint and bar, then look no further. Joe’s Bar NYC is the haven that history, burger, cocktail and beer aficionados come to meet at the seams.
