Oh, the simple pleasure of sidling up to the bar, leaning over your glass of wine, and flirting with the bartender after feeling just the right amount of buzz.
It's a joy we've had to go without for over a year now, but as of May 3rd, we can officially revel in it once again.
And what better way to celebrate the return of bar stool seating than by having the whole stretch - and, for that matter, bartender - to yourself?!
Beloved Bowery hot spot Short Stories, the pink-hued brunch place slash late night dance destination (in the before times, that is), has launched a totally fun promotion that allows you and a friend to rent out the whole place... for just $60! We mean, why not?
Available every Monday until Short Stories officially reopens, each hour-long slot comes complete with two cocktails per person, whipped up by beverage director Joey Hayes. Per their cheeky reservations page, you can even choose your own bartender mode: 1. Flirt 2. Rude 3. Jovial 4. Flair. Make the bartender laugh and you get a free shot of Tito's or Casamigos (so you better start practicing that whole "socializing with strangers" thing before you arrive).
One hundred percent of sales will go towards supporting their staff. But we suggest leaving a hefty tip as well.
Bar buyouts are unsurprisingly going fast but you can look for an open slot HERE!
