Dante, the award-winning Greenwich Village bar-restaurant best known for its negroni on tap (and its sadly discontinued $1 martini specials), is launching a new satellite location tonight. Created in partnership with design firm-slash-restarauteur AvroKO, the new bar — “Dante at GENUINE” — is located above GENUINE Liquorette in the space formerly occupied by GENUINE Superette.
Okay, yes, we’ve poked fun at Saxon + Parole for its $8 egg cream but the fact remains that we’ve been huge fans of AvroKO’s in-house cocktails guru, Eben Freeman, ever since he was smoking Coke. So what’s he smoking now? Lord only knows, because his new cocktail place beneath AvroKO’s recently opened GENUINE Superette looks bonkers.
