Mixologist Albert Trummer Eyes Grand Street Basement for ‘The Atelier’ Cocktail Lounge

Posted on: January 30th, 2018 at 5:00 am by

Notable Austrian mixologist Albert Trummer – notorious for Apotheke’s bar-top pyro stunts before his arrest in 2010 – is heading south of Delancey Street for his latest venture. Down to the basement.

One year after teaming up with the Hotel on Rivington for the S’zen Cocktail Lounge, the trendy bar man is looking to impart The Atelier on the cellar level of 324 Grand Street.

Based on application materials submitted to Community Board 3, the ten-table Atelier fashions itself as a cocktail lounge with small bites. As such, Trummer and co-principal Elizabeth Anne Keatinge together seek a full liquor license with 2am closing times all days. The menu offers salads, finger foods like tuna tartare and carmelized almonds, and over a dozen different cocktails mixed with hokey “house elixirs.”

It’s worth noting that most of Trummer’s claims to fame – Apotheke, Sanatorium, and S’zen Cocktail Lounge – are not listed in the application paperwork. Only the Alphabet City haunt, Mixers & Elixirs, which he notes is amidst a sale.

The building itself upstairs is home to that Quarters “co-living” experiment by the Medici Living Group.

Below is the tentative menu for The Atelier:
