There’s a new kid on the block–an eclectic, intimate music venue and bar has opened below seeyamañana, NoMad’s relaxed, Baja California-inspired cocktail bar and restaurant, and intimate vibes in a desert-inspired space are calling your name.
Dubbed seeyabajo, the new space highlights the vibrancy of Baja Californian Mexican culture. And though the space itself exudes relaxation, the food and drinks are anything but.
Led by Executive Chef Carlos Chavarria, seasonal, vegetable-forward dishes invoke the flora of the Baja Peninsula. Dishes along the likes of a Charred Brussel Sprout Tostada, Yellowtail Ceviche, and Vegan Chorizo Empanadas make up the dinner menu alongside a raw bar with offerings like Hamachi Crudo, Baja oysters, and fresh lobster.
A daily brunch menu with fresh vegetarian and vegan options will also be offered, focusing on a less-is-more approach.
To drink, an elevated cocktail menu showcases complex libations, including drinks such as Trouble at Hussong’s, a delectable spicy sipper with mezcal, Madeira, dry vermouth, chili pepper, tajin, and lime, the Besame Mucho, a full-flavored horchata milk punch, and the Baja Bonfire, a luscious Bacanora sour with coriander and mango.
Seeyabajo’s relaxed interior aims to evoke the allure of a downtown dive bar or a Brooklyn cocktail lounge. Every corner of the desert-inspired space is filled with natural materials, desert plants, and woven art. The space is very much Baja California flea market art meets a mysterious swap meet, with a mural of Venus in the Baja Desert.
Never taking itself too seriously, seeyabajo will offer a rotating selection of live music, comedy stylings, and more, with plenty of opportunity for exploration. The event schedule kicks off tomorrow, Thursday, July 6th with Aaron Burnett and Metadance 1.0 (Live House, Jazz).
Seeyabajo is located at 49 West 27th Street. It’s open Sunday – Wednesday 10 a.m. – midnight and Thursday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 2 a.m. Learn more on their website.
