BAR OPENING NYC
The nightlife class of 2012 is on a rolling admissions sort of basis. Cropping up unexpectedly—akin to those insidious, indestructible dandelions—albeit infinitely more appealing. Turn your head and more appear, alas, 'tis the nature of this gregarious city! Striving to carve out their unique niche in this sea of diversity, these five newbies approach the scene with a medley of quality sauce, delectable chow, and sensual ambiance—all in the hopes of sparkling brightly enough to garner a smidgeon of your time.
This past week has brought a lot of new players to NYC's world of nightlife. From tapas to Indian, you're in for some exotic treats, as these four hot off the griddle hotspots enlighten your taste and tickle your tastebuds.
If you’ve ever ventured into the decadence of Indian jewel, Junoon, and hungered for a cocktail equivalent, then we have the perfect surprise for you. Opened just next door is Patiala, the new gem on the Flatiron block. Decor is flawlessly executed, creating an Indian paradise right here in Manhattan. By blending modern accents like deep cushioned cream chairs, and simple wooden tables with iconic pieces like the intricately hand carved wooden swing, Patiala offers every patron a comfort zone while they take in each meticulous detail. With an incomparably warm atmosphere, and delicious spice-infused cocktails like the Tandoori Tequila- silver tequila with muddled Tandoori pineapple, lime, curry leaf, and pippali pepper- Patiala brings just enough adventure for you to feel temporarily transported to the lounge's namesake, delving into cocktails unknown, like the maharajah himself. For the slightly starving, they have options like the Seasonal Pakoras and the Dahi Wale Lamb Chops hailing from Junoon.
