First Look at Tammany Hall, Now Open for Dancing and Drinking on the LES

By

Tammany Hall is not quite ready to serve you Roblé Ali's sliders, but the music venue and bar is now pumping out live and D.J.'ed tunes five nights a week. There's a stage for shows on the main floor, an upstairs mezzanine holding private tables, and a basement cocktail lounge with a state-of-the-art sound system for D.J. sets. Right now you'll find twenty beers on tap and an antique fridge full of microbrews like Goose Island and Bourbon County — aged in bourbon casks — plus the usual selection of liquor drinks. Simon Ford and Jamie Gordon's cocktail list will roll out within the month, with offerings including the Dirty Bastard, made with chile-infused Absolut vodka, dry vermouth, spicy olive brine, and the French Toast, a mix of cognac, maple-orange marmalade, and lemon juice, garnished with orange zest.

At the moment, shows are happening from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday, but the venue aims to begin offering earlier service and seven-nights-a-week operation by early March. When the food menu launches at about the same time, it will also include a selection of frites and dips. Glimpse the bi-level, 300-person space in our slideshow.
