The Rosemont, the new one from Aaron Pierce of bygone Trash Bar, has soft-opened in anticipation of a grand opening in May. For those who remember the Trash Bar (however fondly), The Rosemont (a play on its Montrose Street location) is more than a distinctive step up—it’s really nice, by any standards: gorgeous banquettes, a lovely bar with chic padded barstools, an inviting outdoor courtyard, and spiffy bathrooms. The venue still has live music, but the narrow stage in back will cater to jazz rather than drunken rock, and the specialties behind the bar tend towards bespoke cocktails that have more ingredients than “PBR and a shot.” (Try the ‘69 Camaro, a nice turn on an Old Fashioned.)
From Bushwick Daily:
The Rosemont’s soft opening took place at the end of March. The bar boasts a full signature cocktail menu, an eight hundred square foot back patio with plenty of seating, and a small stage in the back of the bar. There is also a kitchen, which will soon start serving up food (through the late hours of the evening!). Expect small plates, such as charcuterie and empanadas.
Other offerings at the Rosemont will include live music every Thursday-Sunday (the lineup of will always be available on their website), weekly film screenings, Thursday night open “jam sessions” after the scheduled performance, and art shows.
