Leisurely App & Pouring Ribbons
NYC is one of the cities that are looked to in the culinary world for the next IT thing. Now there is an app that connects you with some of the best chefs and mixologists in The Big Apple and provides you with unique experiences such as sushi rolling, oyster shucking, and mixology classes with just a few taps on the Leisurely app.
Through the Leisurely app, I had the opportunity to check out, Pouring Ribbons, a craft cocktail bar in the East Village/Alphabet City area of Manhattan while attending a 2 hour mixology class. The price of the class I attended was $125 for two people and includes open bar during the time of the class, a charcuterie board, but more importantly a front row seat to a professional giving you all the tips to make your next home gathering a home run!
Pouring Ribbons has been featured in Grub Street, Eater, Esquire, and The New Yorker to name a few publications. The ambiance of this bar sets the perfect scene for date night or casual convo over unique cocktails. Their bar area is ideal if you are wanting to be able to see the magic behind their craft cocktails or you can opt for a table. I was told by the mixologist leading our experience that Pouring Ribbons typically changes out their drink menu twice a year with a creative themed concepts. Their current concept is Midnight Movies and includes drinks such as B*A*P*S, Friday, Starship Troopers, and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Pouring Ribbons kills the stigma of pretentious bartenders at craft bars and has a staff that is easy to talk to and makes some carefully blended cocktails.
The lovely folks at Leisurely App have provided me with a promo code for my fam! By using the code "domnthecity" you will receive 15% off any upcoming experience via their desktop platform. I highly recommend utilizing their app for a date night or just a way to get up with friends.
