Though the bar is opening it doors today (3/2), the legendary Rockefeller Center townhouse where it resides in has been around for more than a century and was a former ‘watering hole’ for celebrities like Jack Kerouac and David Letterman. There’s even an secret entrance that Johnny Carson used to use!
Now known as Pebble Bar, previously named Hurley’s from 1982 to 2000, the elevated lounge and bar takes over floor 2-4 of the multi-story townhouse.
Set to open in February, the spot made an announcement on Instagram that they will officially be ready for business Wednesday, March 2.
The bar is backed by even more notorious names like Julian Brizzi (behind The Jane Ballroom, Grand Army, Ray’s, Rucola and Black Seed Bagels and more), John and Christine Gachot of Gachot Studios and celebrity investors like Pete Davidson and Justin Theroux.
The spot will provide “of-the-moment offerings” from raw/baked oysters, decadent seafood towers, to airy popcorn.
For drinks, diners can order timeless cocktails or try out their modern wine program.
Beyond the bar, people can reserve the top floor called “Johnny’s” for exclusive private events. Johnny’s will serve as the perfect venue for dinners, cocktail reception, daytime meetings, or exciting after parties.
Reservations can be made through their website on Resy. Pebble Bar will be open Sunday through Wednesday 5 p.m. – 12 a.m. and Thursday through Saturday 5 p.m. – 2 a.m.
