Pouring Ribbons

25 Avenue B
New York, NY 10009


  • Daily 6pm-2am
On the second floor of an Avenue B building sits Pouring Ribbons, a cocktail bar from a quartet of mixology's heavy hitters and beverage consultants. Part laboratory for other projects, part Chartreuse library, and part magnet for spirits geeks from across the globe, the place pours a menu of drinks classified on a pair of scales: from refreshing to spirituous, and from comforting to adventurous. The owners' fluency in the vast cocktail canon comes through in what's delivered to your table; despite the diversity of offerings, almost everything that comes off the rail is successful. And the bartenders are as good at the art of conversation as they are at putting together your drink, which means that while there are plenty of tables spread throughout this sparsely decorated room, the best seats in the house are at the bar.
