Culture ~ Suffolk Arms

Mixology is taking over on the Lower East Side scene in NY. Founded by Giuseppe Gonzalez and Ruben Rodriguez, creative cocktails are crafted in a classic decor.

Situated at the bar around 6pm, Suffolk Arms begins to fill up as indie rock tunes play to complement the background noise. I heard Metric! Just before 7pm, the owner arrives and the place comes alive. The bar allures visitors with a seated mahogany bar, pub style booths and portraits of influential New Yorkers.

The evening scene is cool and lively. The friendly bartender, Ricky and I discussed cocktails across the pond and I enjoyed hearing their fun bartender banter.

There is a serious approach to making the drinks as they are divided into three sections: signatures, modern classics and vodka cocktails. I was happy to find my favourite cocktail, Pornstar Martini. I highly recommend! Suffolk Arms brings a new level to cocktail culture. Cheers! Address: 269 E Houston St and hours: 5pm-4am.
