After shutting down its iconic second-story space last year, Angel’s Share, maybe the most beloved former NYC speakeasy, is set for a comeback!
The original location on Stuyvesant Street first opened in 1993 by Tony Yoshida. However, Yoshida’s daughter, Erina, will be the one to carry on the notorious cocktail bar’s legacy as she’ll take over the new location, reports the New York Times. Drinkers will be able to find the reinstated location at 45 Grove Street in Greenwich Village.
Apparently, the search for a new space has been long underway. Once Angel’s Share closed in its original East Village venue, Erina Yoshida staged a summer pop-up in Hotel Eventi while she searched for a more permanent location, explained the New York Times.
The space is expected to have all of its same charm from the original location, just under a new address. And if you’re asking the question we think you’re asking, yes, the opulent cherub mural will return. Similar to the first location’s secrecy, guests will only be able to recognize the spot by its modest logo on the door.
“I was really about to give up when I found this space,” Ms. Yoshida told the New York Times. “[It] had this old world charm and a history, which was very important to me, knowing that we’ve been around for a long time, too.”
For libations, the New York Times informs that the menu will feature bites like sashimi, crudos, karaage chicken and homemade pickles. Signature drinks known by previous regulars will make their return, in addition to new cocktail creations and others that were featured on the pop-up menu.
As before, standing at the bar will be prohibited. Likewise, parties can be no larger than a group of four. And though reservations won’t be available ahead of time, if you’re lucky enough to score a seat you might catch Erina herself!
