A new bar brought to you from the owners of Five Leaves called “Nights and Weekends” adjacent to McCarren Park is now officially open for business. Nights and Weekends features a selection of liquor that’s very rum heavy (think Island beverages along the lines of frozen pisco sours, Red Stripe beer, Malbec wines from Argentina and Chilean Carmeneres), and a menu inspired by Cuba and the West Indies. We hear that the waffles slathered with spiced rum butter are a must order.
If you’re thinking the themed menu might be a bit much, remember that Nights and Weekends isn’t a cheesy themed bar, “We were careful not to skew too tiki,” says Dan Sabo, one of the bartenders. “This isn’t a Hawaiian shirt sort of list. Instead, it’s cocktails for pirates and desperadoes.”
