Very cool article rumdrinks.
On the topic of new, I stopped by Chelsea Bar in Old city a few nights ago. It is owned by the guys who own Soho Pizza next door. Apparently, they bought the whole building. Nothing special, just an overflow lounge/bar for other hotspots around the neighborhood but you can order everything off the Soho menu in there, as long as you do not feel wierd eating a pizza in front of the martini sipping patrons.
