Self-Serve Beer Shop ‘Paloma Rocket’ Taps out, Seeks East Village Revival
Paloma Rocket is grounded.
The self-serve beer outpost tapped out a couple weeks ago, thus ending a year-long jaunt at 7 Clinton Street.
Paloma Rocket launched in April 2016, more than a year after the concept was first announced. Armed with an in-your-face James Bond theme, the craft beer bar offered thirty rotating beers on tap, payable on a per-ounce metric via special Paloma Rocket card.
Owner Graham Winton is eyeing a return, though, and is reportedly close to signing a lease for the second coming. It’ll open sometime in the fall in an undisclosed East Village location.
“Our landlord is facilitating the process by offering us other locations and incentives to move,” Winton told EV Grieve. “For us it will enable us to hopefully move to a larger location and expand our tap offerings to include spirits and mixed drinks as well as have space for birthdays, etc.”
