The artists Ektoras Binikos and Simon Jutras have merged their diverse artistic styles to create a sophisticated new mixology cocktail bar, located on Frederick Douglass Boulevard’s Restaurant Row in Harlem ~ a homage to the Uptown Speakeasies and salons of Harlem’s historic past ~ Sugar Monk.
The Sugar Monk cocktail menu is in itself artful, an expression of Binikos’ journey through alchemy, art and beauty. It features over 30 distinctive cocktails that blend exotic, unusual and mysterious ingredients. The menu is divided into 8 chapters, each referential to a special journey, from the monks and their long history of distillation to the jazz pioneer and musical master, Thelonious Monk, served as small plates.
The cocktail salon, Sugar Monk is located at 2292 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, between 123rd/124th Streets. Anticipated opening, June 2019.
