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!
