The Dickens NYC, a new inclusive, immersive cocktail bar experience, is coming to Hell’s Kitchen. The bar features four unique floors, multiple themed event spaces, private rooms with an elevated bar experience, and a full menu. The Dickens is set to open at the beginning of November, just in time for the holiday season.

Visitors will find The Dickens Cocktail Bar, an intimate 30-seat bar complete with fireplace and elegant green and gold finishes; The Genies Lounge, a nod to the inside of a genie's lamp with walls draped in velvet, plush sofas and a fireplace; The Dark Room, based on an old photography dark room studio; The Discoteca, with a futuristic neon 80's vibe; and The Margarita Market Rooftop with a variety of frozen drinks to indulge in.

Other offerings include cauliflower bites, bacon-wrapped shrimp, chicken dumplings and more. The inspiring cocktail program also features fun, fresh cocktails and classics, as well as a secret recipe house shot called, 'The Tiny Tim.’

The Dickens is located at 783 8th Avenue, New York, NY.
