Where to Grab a Drink in NYC Right Now
This East Village cocktail bar from Will Wyatt (Pretty Ricky’s, The NoMad Hotel) and Alex Thaboua (The Standard, The NoMad Hotel) has long become a popular go-to spot in the area since opening in 2019. While going into hibernation mode more than once throughout the pandemic, the duo also started offering burritos to their customers at Mister Paradise. The silver lining to come of it was the inception of Electric Burrito, the duo’s fast casual Cali-Mexican eatery on nearby St. Marks with exceptional California-style burritos stuffed with fries. In addition to cocktails like the Party Lobster (tequila/mezcal, campari, watermelon, habanero) or Handy Shandy (tomato, verjus, aperol, passion fruit, pilsner), Mister Paradise offers its own food items (sorry, no burritos though) like smoked salmon belly paté, crab toast, and the popular Paradise Double Burger.
