Existing Conditions

Recommended Posts

Existing Conditions is the name of the new cocktail bar co-owned by Dave Arnold, Don Lee (@donbert), and Greg Boehm.

 

Though she had the opening date wrong in yesterday's paper, I'll let Flo Fab take over from here. (I'm hearing May 19th).

 

Quote

Dave Arnold, the avant-garde cocktail master who is in partnership with Don Lee, another drinks innovator, and Greg Boehm, who founded Cocktail Kingdom, which makes and sells barware and books. They will serve some beers and wines, and can stir a proper martini, but that’s beside the point. Their drinks are listed as nonalcoholic (sophisticated, at times sparkling, and priced at $15, the same as the alcoholic selections), carbonated, shaken, stirred straight up or on a big rock. Those in a hurry can buy bottled cocktails from vending machines with a $15 token.

Not open yet. And now doesn't appear to be opening until next month.

 

NYC permits, licenses, inspections, etc. can be a real pain in the ass.

Believe me, as someone going through it in DC, I know what it's like.

 

Is Polynesian open yet? I see Broken Shaker's NY outpost opened out of the blue.

No, it had been open for quite a while (sometime in 2011), and closed in 2016.

Still waiting on their license, but they'll be previewing some of the stuff on their menu one day this week, via a catering license from Mace (another of one of the co-owner's bars.

I have heard that the license has finally come through.  I expect an opening in the next week or two.
