New in the Neighborhood: Every now and then, when you think the SoHo drinking scene has reached complete saturation, a new bar opens up that brings pleasant surprises. Enter Khan, a neighborhood bar specializing in handcrafted cocktails made using seasonal ingredients.
Look & Feel: It’s a neighborhood joint, so the vibe is chilled and laidback. The bar opens up to the hilly terrain of Peel Street just off Hollywood Road, and inside, there’s a simple decor and not an OTT detail in sight — think high wooden tables and walls painted black.
On the Menu: There are some unusual creations to be found here, like the Sherpa ($150), made with Nepalese Khukri rum, red wine and cinnamon, sweetened with star anise-made sugar, maple sugar and sugar syrup. Cocktails are a bit on the steep side, landing at around the $150 mark — although sadly, what Central/SoHo bar isn’t pricing their cocktails at a similar rate?
Great For: People-watching, after-work drinks, low-key weekends.
FYI: Khan is a venture opened by five friends, who apparently grew tired of “pretentious” bars around town.
