Dozens if not hundreds of new bars open every year in NYC, but only a few really have a huge impact on the city’s liquid scene. These joints aren’t your average Irish pubs, they are innovative temples of mixology where you’re likely to find things like house-made sodas and drinks that are served in jars and meant for two people. Recently, we rounded up the five most interesting new openings for an article on Zagat’s Blog (which is our day gig, if you haven’t already surmised that). Check out the list here and see which five new openings are having the biggest impact. Don’t worry, if you haven’t had a chance to stop by those watering holes yet, you’re likely to see their influence trickling down to your local haunt soon enough.
