A new lounge is ready to start pouring on the Upper West Side, which can surely use another spot (or five) to get a good stiff one. Beacon Bar, which officially opens on July 8, is located inside the Beacon Hotel right next to the famous theater (the bar is angling to be a pre- and post-show spot). The 62 seat venue will serve cocktails like the Parisian Sling, a mix of gin, cherry herring Benedictine, pineapple juice and sparkling wine along with grub like a pulled pork sandwich and charcuterie and cheese boards, 'cause sharing is caring.
There's some large windows so you can scope out the crowds on Broadway (and make them jealous as you sip your libation). The venue is located at 2130 Broadway at 75th Street (212-787-1100).
