There is much to celebrate in Harlem this month. Harlem entrepreneurs with an anniversary and extending their product line take the helm, plus a New York City favorite finds their place on 125th Street.
Dec. 4, owner Karl Franz Williams and the 67 Orange Street team celebrated 10 years in business. Named after the address of the first Black-owned saloon in New York City, @67OrangeStreet continues the legacy as the first craft cocktail bar in Harlem.
“Ten years and dozens of new craft bars all over Harlem later, we are so thankful for the support and continue to stay committed to bringing the same or better level of quality and variety of products and services uptown,” said Williams.
Congratulations! (Loyal to that Emancipation cocktail!)
Congratulations also to Harlem Haberdashery (@HaberdasheryNYC) for the launch of their new @HHBespokeSpirit line—gin-infused with American botanicals, rum aged in New American oak and used bourbon barrels and vodka from locally grown potatoes, triple distilled. Each bottle is a decanter, lined with fabric patterns, $55 each, available at @PompetteWines, 420 Lenox Ave.
Finally, the first @ShakeShack in Harlem opens Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 1 W. 125th St. We hear good things! Look out for our @LadyLexisSweets and @HarlemBrew there!
