The Anchor Bar’s co-owner Jason LaGerenne wants to spend a million dollars so the SoHo bar’s patrons will have something cool to Instagram. What could possibly be cool enough to Instagram? Well, howabout Blackbeard’s 13 feet by 8 feet anchor that went down with his ship, Queen Anne’s Revenge off the coast of North Carolina in 1718. Yes, who wouldn't Instagram the barnacles of that thing?
Anchor Bar owner Gunther Bilali told Blackbook that LaGerenne is a boat fanatic and that the bar needs
“a real Anchor… a serious anchor.” Unfortunately, as it stands, the only thing seriously anchored is the bar’s dreams because the State of North Carolina is not about to just give up their sunken treasure.
Famed lobster roll spot, Luke's Lobster, is joining up with SoHo staple, The Anchor, with nautically themed cocktails and plenty of delicious rolls. The Anchor is foregoing fancy bottle service and opting instead for vintage coolers filled with summer beers and bottles of rum; along with an array of house made nautical punches. In addition to delectable cocktails, Luke's Lobster will be serving fresh Maine lobster rolls from their summer pop-up.
Can it get any more summer-y than this?!
I am proud of where I live, and having lived there for a grand total of six weeks, I feel it is my privilege, nay, my responsibility, to report some comings and goings that are occurring. This is not a gossip piece, so much as a ‘heads up.’ In the heart of the East Village, where trendy just gets trendier, there is more to be excited about.
I never realized when I first moved in to my new apartment, just what kind of neighborhood I was getting myself involved with, and now that I’ve been living there a grand total of six weeks, I feel a veritable local, and am assuming the responsibility of showing off that I live in a cooler part of the city than you. That, and I want to draw attention to some new developments happening on 7th Street.
