If you can name, the movie where the title of this quote is from then you fall into the demographic we’re trying to reach with this article. New York City has been home to many iconic venues, restaurants, bars, and places that people talk about for generations. It’s why people from all over the world want to be here and visit. For this reason, our real estate is expensive and the places we love to visit cannot always stand the test of time because of rising rents and real estate costs. It’s the discussion that causes all of us pain and keeps the city ever changing. For better or worse.
Once in a while we get a comeback. And we all love comebacks. If you know the Sandlot and appreciate a New York establishment, then you probably know this iconic East Village bar – PKNY. If the initials PKNY unlock some memories (or lack thereof) for you, we’re pretty psyched to let you know that the beloved tiki bar is coming back! Only this time, PKNY won’t be in the LES in a venue that could appear intimidating. Instead, it moved to Brooklyn and only here for a short period of time!
Cutwater Spirits is resurrecting 2010’s classic PKNY for a 2-night tropical pop-up experience in a lush Greenpoint oasis. The intimate event will feature the original PKNY team including NYC bartending legend Richard Boccato making signature cocktails from the beloved PKNY menu using Cutwater’s award-winning rums alongside stations of Cutwater canned rum cocktails (Piña Colada, Mai Tai, Mojito). An unexpected and immersive environment awash in a kaleidoscope of colorful lighting will reveal freshly tagged work from the original PKNY graffiti artist Ivory TM7, ambient sets from their 2010s house DJ, custom bento boxes, and other surprises.
All ticket sales will benefit Another Round, Another Rally, a nonprofit financial resource for the hospitality industry providing reimbursement grants, immersive educational scholarships for historically excluded voices in the community and emergency assistance for unexpected hardship.
