Here's the enclosed interior of Tunnel Bar, the upcoming bar and cocktail lounge from Richard DiSisto, Daniel Zacharczuk and Adam Weisblatt, opening on May 22. The inspiration for the place comes directly from the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel in NYC, with some 70's rock & roll accents like photographs of Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, and Johnny Ramone donning the walls. Located directly above Tipple & Brine, a secret entrance to the bar is located behind the building. That blue light? That's the place.
Drinks might be an Elder Fashioned, made with gin and St. Germain instead of bourbon. Or go for something more original, like the Sister Ray, loaded with rye, rum, sherry (everyone loves a sherry cocktail right now), and velvet falernum. Opening hours will be Thursday to Saturday, 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.
