Meet a Lower Manhattan Business: Bar Seven Five
Each week we feature a local business. Today we’ll introduce you to Bar Seven Five at the Andaz Wall Street hotel.
Bar Seven Five, at the Andaz Wall Street hotel, is a bar—but not really.
The room is long and sleek, lit with the glowing orange of Edison filament bulbs that seem to float over the nine black butcher-block tables. But there’s no bar, just a table amidst the others topped with bottles, mixers and garnishes.
A bartender stands casually by his station, available to mix drinks like the Perfect Pearl Manhattan (Bulleit bourbon, Dolin sweet and dry vermouth, Lavagulin Scotch, $13), named after nearby Pearl Street, and 16 high-end classics. The usual barriers, though, aren’t there.
“We want people to feel like they’ve been invited over to a friend’s house,” said Rachel Harrison, Public Relations Director at the hotel. “A very rich friend, I guess.”
