Apple-spice bitters, ginger and kale juice cocktails, and Fernet-Branca-and-cola on tap make their Avenue C debuts at the Wayland, Alphabet City’s newest outpost for cutting-edge cocktails. The scavenger-chic décor bears the distinctive mark of Greenpoint’s brothers Haslegrave; bar snacks range from raw oysters to chicken liver and bacon on toast; and live music is the sole legacy of the joint’s humble predecessor, Banjo Jim’s.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
