Opening: September 2018
Recreation will be the latest installment from restaurateur and nightlife operator Jon Neidich of Golden Age Hospitality (Acme, Happiest Hour, Slowly Shirley, Tijuana Picnic), set to open September within the new Moxy NYC Downtown hotel in the Financial District. Located on Moxy’s expansive 5,000 sq. ft. third floor space, Recreation will be a communal co-working space by day and a bar by night — serving as the ultimate living room for the neighborhood. Playing into a retro theme, the cocktails - conceived by Golden Age Hospitality’s Beverage Director Jim Kearns - will reimagine 1:1 drinks. Guests can expect elevated Screwdrivers, Spiked Punch Bowls, Keg-tapped Cocktails and Large-Format drinks served in unique vessels, all featuring housemade tonics and sodas. Drawing inspiration from the rec room at your neighbor’s house, Recreation will also feature an old school Arcade Machine with games like Ms. Pacman, Centipede and Donkey Kong, a Twister Board painted on the floor, Jenga, and — designed to host events or just play ball — a half court-sized basketball court.
