Hot New East Village Sipping Spots

The East Village is home to some of the best boozy bars in the city, so it's no surprise that two new spots have opened up, dishing out creative cocktails.

Evelyn Drinkery is not only a cocktail mecca, but it's also budget friendly, which we all know is hard to find in the city that never sleeps. The cocktail bar resembles an old-style saloon, split distinctly into two parts -- the front room, which has masculine features such as wooden benches and exposed brick, while the back room has a more feminine appeal with banquettes and cocktail waitresses. The Drinkery is brought to you by Drummer Hoff Hospitality, which was founded by Jared Shepard, Justin August Fairweather, and Christian Sanders, who have had extensive experience in the cocktail industry. The cocktail program at the bar is broken down into four categories: juleps, collins, cocktails, and spirited phosphates. If you're wondering what that last one is exactly, it's booze-infused housemade sodas (carbonated cocktails are hot right now). Not only are their phosphate drinks to die for and their liquor concoctions unique and tasty, but they surprise you with a non-traditional pricing for the city, clocking in between $7 and $11. With bargains, booze, and an 'all are welcome' attitude, this is sure to be the new 'it' desitination this Fall.
