Arrow Bar

I found this out last night...

First-time bar owner Zachary Waldman, a talent booker at Lower East Side nightspot Pianos, tries his luck at the booze biz in the space that briefly housed the Rook. Here, cocktails are the specialty: Concoctions include the Wysteria (champagne with lavender liqueur and peach bitters) and the potent Vesper (gin, vodka, Lillet Blanc and Cointreau). Drinks are two for one during happy hour, from 4 to 9pm daily, and DJs spin most nights; upcoming artists include Sweatshop Labor and Lauren Flax. [Time Out]
