☞ DRINK: The Pimm's Cup at Cove Lounge

The New York Times has a write up on a classic British drink mixer from the 1860s that is making its rounds at bars during the summer and a version served at Cove on Lenox Avenue also made the feature.  A Pimm's Cup is an old fashion sort of cocktail that uses the sweet and spicy liqueur called Pimm's No. 1 as its alcohol flavoring. This tea colored drink has been updated by adding fruit and Cove Lounge apparently has a Cove Cup which features raspberries: LINK

  3. Its a 2 floor lounge. 1st floor small no dj booth. 2nd floor larger, dj booth. There are bars on both floors.

    In my opinion, Cove's kind of positioned itself as a meat market.

    Once you start in with the velvet ropes and bouncers at the door, that is the crowd you are gonna get.

    Hopefully they start having events like comedy night, to change things up a bit.

  4. I didn't realize it was open. I mean, I've walked past multiple times and it looks closed to me. What are their hours?

    That's disappointing about the velvet ropes and meatmarket vibe. Totally not my scene, but other people are into it. To each his or her own. Pimms really doesn't seem suited to a meatmarket environment. I see it as something to be sipped at an outdoor table. Maybe Corner Social will start serving it.
