You don’t necessarily need to trek down to 5th Avenue to belly up to the bar anymore. The long-awaited Parish cocktail bar and lounge just opened at 223 7th Avenue, between 3rd and 4th Streets, and they’re looking forward to welcoming neighbors in for a drink.
Behind the solid wood door is a cozy, full bar with an inviting lounge area in the back, and with both the atmosphere and the prices, they tell us they’re hoping to make it the kind of place you’ll feel is comfortable enough to stop in for a drink on your way home from work.
In addition to some wines on tap — Acrobat’s organic Pinot Noir and organic Pinot Gris (from Oregon) and an Italian Malbec — and in bottles, they’ve got eight draught beers (with a focus on Belgium and Germany, plus craft brews from Oregon, Colorado, California, and New York), and a seasonal cocktail menu featuring drinks made with fresh-squeezed juices and other fresh ingredients.
Prices for the wines on tap and draught beers are $6-7, and cocktails are around $8. They’re also working on a small charcuterie menu, which they hope to keep around $10.
They note that everything is still a bit of a work in progress, but that they were excited to open, and will continue to develop what they offer in the coming weeks.
Has anyone been in yet? What’d you think?
