Kastel has been stirring quite the downtown buzz lately so Haute Living decided to go in for a cocktail taste test drive for ourselves. Here’s what we thought.
- Jeremy Strawn– an expert mixologist with a Harvard of cocktail training (aka Death and Co.) and a smile to turn even the worst bad day into a joyous one. If you have a favorite spirit, just name it and Jeremy will whip into action a drink which will satisfy even the heftiest cocktail craze.
- Ambiance – Ultra chic, sexy and simply haute. Headed by expert nightlife connoisseurs at KNR and the Rockwell Group design team we wouldn’t expect anything less. Bring a date here or perfect for a girls night out.
- Cocktails – the price is hefty at $18 a pop, but well worth it. Recommendations include The Bramble, a mixture of Plymouth Gin, St. Germain and Fresh Lemon topped with Housemade Jam; the Mehkong Sling with Mehkong, Pineapple Cheery Heering and Lime Juice; and the refreshing Kastel Kobbler made with Atlantico Rum, Muddled Peaches, Honey and Lemon Juice.
Haute Additional Accents
- Lamb sliders – Juicy, yet not greasy. A bun that is crisp yet not dry. Very balanced and great for setting the gastronomical stage for an evening of cocktail indulgence.
Kastel is located in the Trump SoHo Hotel at 246 Spring Street, New York, NY 212.842.5500
