The Shipping News
Little Italy’s New Cocktail Mecca

The following is an expansive—though by no means complete—list of the times you’ll want to have The Ship at your disposal. It’s an unassuming new cocktail spot in Little Italy from a team of wunderkinds who have, between them, worked at Little Branch, Milk & Honey and PDT.

Any questions? Thought not.

Let’s get to it...

You just got out of a Nolita art opening.

You just got out of a Nolita fashion party.

You just got out of a nap where you dreamed about rum-based Old Fashioneds.

Your therapist just suggested you finally confront your fear of large boat parts and/or hip underground cocktail spots.

Some comely person in your vicinity exclaims, “I will sleep with the next person who buys me a cocktail and finds me a seat next to an attractive, nonfunctioning fireplace.”

Your prospective date has a fetish for the material used to make sails (the wraparound banquettes are made of it).

You’re given to vicious late-night cravings for mini lobster rolls with sriracha mayo.

You find out you’re allergic to none of these: fresh lime juice, brandy or cognac.

You realize you enjoy mixed alcoholic beverages.


Well, that about covers it.
