Harlem Travel Guide – 67 Orange Street – iPhone, iPad, and iPod

Not your traditional cocktail fare

You won’t find the usual suspects—mojitos and cosmos—on the menu at 67 Orange, which is an upscale cocktail lounge that takes its name from the final address of the African American-owned Almack’s Dance Hall that flourished in the early 1800s in notorious Five Points. Instead, you will find $13 libations that combine luxury spirits from all ends of the globe with homemade liquor infusions of natural fruits, herbs, and spices. A must-try is Madame Almack—a cocktail made of Bak’s Bison Grass Vodka, fresh mint, Cynar Artichoke Aperitif, and champagne. The food menu is just as atypical, with light fare offerings such as orange-roasted duck leg with cinnamon mashed potatoes and a daily selection of market-fresh shellfish. Owner Karl Franz Williams, has outfitted the cozy vintage space with purple velvet curtains, distressed mirrors, filament light bulbs, and rotating fine art on the brick walls.

Cuisine: Eclectic Bar Food, Raw Bar

Menu

This is why the “Gold Coast” is sizzling–bier international is a neighborhood place to meet neighbors and catch up on the local news. Down the block, 5 & Diamond serves up delicious eats at reasonable prices.

Transportation: Bus—M2, M3, M7, M10, M116. Subway—B, C to 110th St.

I can only subscribe to what other people already have told about the guide. It’s just great that I can read a place description, actually give a call its manager, find it on a map and even hook up on its Twitter channel to keep my eye on it. Very smart!
