‘Double Chicken Please’ Brings Cocktails to Allen Street

Posted on: November 17th, 2020 at 5:08 am by

A roving pop-up bar that traveled around in a yellow Volkswagen minibus is now officially parked on the Lower East Side.

Double Chicken Please, the cocktail bar concept from Huey Chang (Raku, Kura), Faye Chen, and Angel’s Share alum Gn Chan, is now serving at 115 Allen Street. The former home of Hill & Dale.

Chan and Chen are opening with a slimmed down version of the full concept — an elaborate menu pairing food and cocktails — which may not be possible until the city reopens for higher capacity indoor dining. To start, the duo will serve only six drinks.

To that end, Double Chicken Please is operating with temporary liquor licenses that expire in January, presumably until the full license is approved.

There is plenty of mileage with this new cocktails spot. Together, the duo drove ten thousand miles over three years, and made popular pit-stops in Austin, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Columbus, Nashville, Atlanta, New Orleans, and Miami; here at home they’ve served at Patisserie Fouet in Greenwich Village and Hunky Dory in Crown Heights.
