Cocktail Bodega Adds New Awning

Cocktail Bodega is further asserting its presence at the corner of Chrystie and Stanton with this new bodega-style awning. Playing the part, the blue storefront flair barely mentions the name of the establishment, only what’s offered inside. Namely, beer, cocktails, coffee, juice, “open late.” It’s a simple addition, but one that changes the look of the whole building.

The corner canopy arrived at 205 Chrystie Street a few days ago, four months after Matt Levine first opened the juice joint. Meanwhile, the well-weathered sign from predecessor 205 Club remains affixed to the facade.

      I lived above it for 10 years, the building is haunted, and I’m not kidding. Built on top of an Indian burial ground, the old super had to be institutionalized and my friend died living there, they will go out of business hopefully it will become a library for deaf people
