Quinton's Bar & Deli is reopening its East Village location next week and its owners have a bonus surprise: They're also launching a new speakeasy.
What's happening: Alleged Lee's will open Oct. 1 next to Quinton's, following a 10-month renovation that divided the bar.
The tasty intrigue: The focus of the speakeasy — decorated with art from Iowa's Prohibition years — will be whiskey and bourbon.
- Plus, an ornate, hand-carved bar salvaged from a ballroom in Pittsburg will help give the space that nostalgic feel.
What else: Alleged Lee's will share bathrooms with Quinton's, but the two bars will have their own entrances.
- They'll also both have garage-door windows that open to the outside
⏰ Quinton's, 506 E. Grand Ave. Open daily, 11am-2pm. (Kitchen closes at 10pm.)
- Alleged Lee's, 510 E. Grand Ave. Open 4pm-2am Monday-Thursday; 2pm-2am Friday-Sunday.
