Manhattan, NY The Worldwide leasing team of Faith Hope Consolo and Arthur Maglio at Douglas Elliman arranged a lease for Sugar Monk at 2292 Frederick Douglass Blvd. between West 123rd and 124th Sts. The 800 s/f intimate cocktail venue is set to open in November.
Master mixologist Ektoras Binikos is bringing his talent of creating “art in a glass” with co-founder Simon Jutras to their first-ever cocktail lounge. With a goal to provide the ultimate sensory experience where art will meet mixology, eclectic live music and performances will also be available on selected evenings.The name of the lounge is a tribute to jazz legend Thelonious Monk and the history of monks in distillation.
