Looking in through the large front windows it looks to be a social club of sorts, with candles flickering, small wooden benches and tables scattered about the open room, a shuffle board lining one wall.
Travel downstairs and owners Matt Michel, of the 1943 Pizza Bar, and Evan Bucholz have created an environment conducive for cocktail consumption. A well stocked bar consisting of bottles of Rye, Bourbon, Whiskey and Bitters line the wall behind the bar. Names and labels unfamiliar to most, but to Evan, the master mixologist, they’re the tools of his trade.
A black ceiling, dark grey walls, a long wooden banquette lined with Edison bulbs casting a golden hue across the room all set the vibe for the perfect place to hang out, meet friends and linger over Manhattans, Old Fashioneds and other classic concoctions. A menu and kitchen that is shared by the 1943 Pizza Bar offers up plates of olives, crostini, salads and of course pizza.
