At the High Line, fancy soda goes beyond your grandma’s cherry-lime rickey. The park’s first soda bar opens today at West 15th Street, and it features locally made, creatively concocted flavors from Brooklyn Soda Works, including apple and ginger, hibiscus and mint, lemongrass and lime, and the High Line special, tart cherry.
The bar is located in the park at West 15th Street; it will hold court daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. through September, and is Friends of the High Line’s latest effort to engage small businesses and integrate local, sustainable, artisanal foods into life of the park.
In celebration, Brooklyn Soda Works and Friends of the High Line are offering $1 off all of the new bar’s offerings.
If soda’s not enough, grab a snack from one of the many delicious vendors in the area: Delaney Barbecue’s Smoke Line, People’s Pops, L’Arte del Gelato, and La Newyorkina are all within spitting distance.
