Elizabeth Daniels 10/13 Craft cocktails finally get their due in dance clubs, with Warwick leading the way and now Honeycut, a production of 213 Ventures (Cole's, Broadway Bar) and Proprietors, LLC (Chapter & Verse) that now resides behind the O Hotel in Downtown. Principals Cedd Moses, Eric Needleman, Alex Day, and David Kaplan produce this dance lounge and music venue in a sprawling, 3,000 square foot space designed by LA-based Patry+Kline (Seven Grand), which brings a retro vibe to two rooms.
The first is a more relaxed cocktail bar featuring an impressive 50-drink menu put together by Devon Tarby (The Varnish), and holds a pool table, upright piano, and plush booths to hang out in. Think mirrors ceilings, blue hues, and wood accents for a rather comfy place to sip someting like a Stone Cold Fox, made with tequila, sherry, apricot liqueur, and cardamaro.
The dance room, called The Disco, also has bottled cocktails and cocktails on draft for quick service while general manager Adam Weisblatt picks out beers and wines. The dance floor holds an analog LED lighting system while the raised seating area can also change into a space for a full band. For now, music will be curated by Criminal Music's Tera Uhlinger with Matt Goldman of MFG Productions, who will announce the venue's selection of bands, musicians, DJs, and more through Honeycut's Twitter. Open nightly from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., with the grand opening on October 15.
