The men behind Ninth Ward, Nic Ratner and Robert Morgan, are slated to open a new spot this Friday. Kingston Hall. Located in the former Holy Basil space in the East Village, it's said to resemble a Jamaican mansion taken over by '60s hipsters...no joke.
The theme is obviously Jamaica in 1962, complete with two fireplaces, and a pool table (do they need fireplaces in Jamaica?).
The new spot will be serving up cocktails in coconuts (we expect nothing less), as well as pub grub with a Jamaican flair, such as beef patties.
We look forward to checking out this new and unusual bar!

The show, written by Romeo Candido and Carmen De Jesus and directed by Jenn Rapp, will be showing at St. Clement's from July 20th until July 28th. The show follows the lives of eight Filipino maximum-security prisoners, whose lives are changed when a video of their dance-based rehab program goes viral on YouTube. The dark prison suddenly finds itself in the spotlight and these hardcore criminals are given a second chance. Furthermore, the show is inspired by a true story! Tickets are $20 and available for purchase here. Check out the performance schedule below:
