Now Open: Felice Next Door on the UES
Last August we reported the opening of Felice Next Door on the Upper East Side, and today’s the official opening – just in time for weekend imbibing. Attached to Felice 83, Felice Next Door is all about the booze. There’s a nice selection of scotch (Monday night’s will feature scotch flights) and a healthy craft beer list, along with wines from co-owner Jacopo Giustiniani’s own label from his family winery in Italy.
It is the UES, so no bar would be complete without a flat-screen TV. But they keep it classy with cushy, leather banquettes and high-top tables that round out a warm (often candlelit) lounge. 1593 First Ave.; 212-249-4080
