SakaMai Starts Slinging Sake Thursday at 157 Ludlow
SakaMai has been in hushed preview mode for about a week, but will officially launch Thursday at 157 Ludlow Street. As expected, its arrival marks the latest nightlife entrant to have a go at this troubled address. Opening for the new sake bar is nearly a year in the making.
In its own words, SakaMai aims to “cultivate a unique eating and drinking culture and experience by infusing tradition with progression.” To that end, there are various sakes and Japanese brews available alongside Pacific-Rim inspired libations. According to Thrillist, Angel’s Share vet Shingo Gokan is the mixologist behind some of the cocktails.
Meanwhile, errant graffiti sprayed on the exterior begs people to “come here.”
