“Cocktail Bodega” Set to Open Next Week

Matt Levine and his team at Cocktail Bodega are getting ready for the launch of the new venue at 205 Chrystie Street/19 Stanton Street.  Here’s a promotional image for one of the new bar’s alcohol-infused cocktails — the “Wheatgrass Jim Beam.”  We hear the Sons of Essex honcho plans to open Cocktail Bodega next week.  As Grub Street indicated recently, the place has “aluminum picnic tables and bleachers” on the main floor, while downstairs there’s “a grittier vibe, with graffitied walls, subway seats, and a dubstep-and-jungle soundtrack.”
