After the East Village Yacht Club told us they vacated their space because their rent doubled to $26,000, we were glad to see it wasn't being used for a Ralph Lauren store. Instead, Arlo and Esme opened shop there, serving coffee roasted by hand in small batches by Kobricks, a Hoboken favorite. In addition to employing a manual espresso machine, Arlo and Esme is serves four varieties of French-pressed coffees and high-end espresso cocktails. The upstairs café becomes a wine bar at night, and the 4,000-square-foot downstairs space features a full bar with a pool room and weekend D.J.'s until 4am. Bottle service is an option, but owners Harry Joannides and Gage Pray (who are both managers at Bar Six) say they want their place to be as unpretentious as possible. We believe ’em: They’ve named the joint after Pray’s young nephew and niece.
