Pocket Bar -- Cute little bar in Hell's Kitchen

omotosando | Jul 6, 201410:30 PM     2

Tonight I stumbled into the Pocket Bar, a cute new little, well, pocket of a bar at 455 48th Street (just east of 10th Avenue).

There is no food, although you could probably bring your own (it's that kind of place). And just a few wines and beer on tap and sangria.

The real charm is the decor (even though it's new, it looks like it has been there forever and there are killer light fixtures designed by a Broadway set designer) and the proprietor/bartender Suzy, a former Rockette. A lot of theatre people hang out there and tonight we met a Broadway actor who has been in 20 plays. Lots of fascinating talk about theatre.

With the increasing corporatization of NYC, it was so refreshing to find just a small neighborhood hangout.
