“Delivered the thirsty into the embrace of tropical sunshine of decadent cocktails of Cuba”- The Black Tail
Change is always tough, but having a drink or two at The Black Tail helped to ease the pain. This past week I bid farewell to my job and boy was that hard. Not only did I love my job, but I also loved the people I worked with. They became family to me and it was hard saying goodbye. To send me off into my new career path a few of us went to the Black Tail. This high end Cuban inspired bar is located atop of Pier A house in New York’s Battery Park.
A dimly lite cantina with a decor inspired by the native bar Floridita in Havana. You will feel as if you’ve just landed in the center of the city, with art all around you. From the vintage to contemporary photographs of Cuban life to the John Vanerlyn’s 1847 painting, “Landing of Columbus” that hangs above the bar. Named one of the best new bars in America, The Black Tail makes specialty cocktails all Cuban inspired.
The drink menu is like no other! The menu a book that tells the origin of all their cocktails and also, “tells the story of an aviation maverick that nearly made it”. This small detail was like none I’ve ever seen. Each book has a blank post card that they will mail any where in the world. How amazing is that to write to your friends about the magically night you had at The Black Tail. A New York must visit place! The Black Tail will definitely leave you feeling cultured from the cigar bar, live music, amazing food, and the delicious cocktails. I can’t imagine why you would ever leave New York with little Cuba right in your backyard.
