Travel beneath 26th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue to find Apotheke’s second NYC speakeasy-style location.
Similar to the Doyer Street location, the NoMad spot consists of an intimate basement lounge. In addition to the underground space, it also draws details from the West Coast with its soon-to-come penthouse and terrace garden, mirroring the LA location’s indoor-outdoor feature.
The bi-level bar is inspired by historic apothecaries that created natural remedies from various plants, roots and botanicals.
Their impressive and extensive drink menu is built around ingredients known for their restorative and medicinal properties. It’s even categorized by Stimulants, Pain Killers, Euphorics, Aphrodisiacs and Stress Relievers.
Some unique ingredients you can find in their creations include spirulina, starfruit, and gooseberry, in addition to many of their daily house-made “Bitters with Benefits” and fresh juices and purees.
Upon entry you’ll embark on a sensorial journey. Take in their custom house fragrance or explore the fresh herbs waiting to be used in a concoction on the bar counter. Every detail was intended to awake the fives senses.
At the forefront of the cocktail operation is Nicolas O’Connor, Apotheke’s Director of Mixology and Culinary Arts, who ensures each drink lets guests “explore the wonders of nature” by infusing plants, herbs, roots and botanicals into everything—many even grown on-location.
New to Apotheke and only at the NoMad location is a small plate and shareable food menu. Choose from sustainable caviar service to interactive flavor experiences with apothecary-style droppers!
But especially not to be missed is the show-stopping design by Christopher Tierney. Best described as “ancient future,” Tierney’s touch is unmistakable from the 20-foot rosa aurora marble bar, vaulted bays in the low ceilings and luxurious seating.
“Apotheke NoMad is an experience unlike any other and Christopher’s greatest work. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful and interesting venues in NYC and patrons should expect an atmosphere, service, and menu to match” says Brand Director and CEO, Andrew Hood. “Apotheke is more than just a cocktail lounge; it’s an opportunity to take an adventure, an invitation to celebrate life while experimenting with plant-based formulas that enliven the spirit.”
