Ethyl's alcohol & food is an East side bar & performance space that rattles the bones of A New York PAST. 

FUNKY 1970s-Themed Haunt With Great Food & Drinks Daily. DJ’s, Live Music, GO-GO Girls!

Ethyl’s began as a Love letter to New York City of the 1970s, a time and place that Native New Yorkers, Charlie Sub and Gerard Renny, came of Age.

Charlie, who recalls stories of his father’s legendary rock club "The Coventry", a club that helped launch some of New York’s most iconic bands of the decade; Kiss, The New York Dolls, and The Ramones, just to name a few.

Gerard, who’s nightlife journey began back in 1977, at the early age of 18, when he was thrust into the decadence and celebrity of the infamous Disco di tutti Disco, Studio 54!

The Plan, to build a Bar that could bring those classic memories back to life. This would require a crew of like-minded New Yorkers that could recapture the flavor of old New York.

Enter, Chef, Designer and Curator, Consultant Paul Gerard, to help bring this vision to Life. Paul knew to pull off this caper, it called for the character and insight one can only get from the experience that comes from a lifetime on this city's mean streets, on both sides of the bar, from guys who have hospitality and entertainment in their blood.

He first enlisted his "Consigliere of Cool," lifelong friend, renowned drummer and DJ, Ronnie Magri to help him sharpen the rough edges and create the soundtrack that could swing the scene back to the 70's! 

To round out the crew, they knew every great band needs a Front Man, part Carnival Barker, with moves like Jagger, who could come in and soldier the Sunset Hours. For that, only one guy came to mind, longtime cohort, the King of Carousing, Adam Velez aka Skinny Papa and from there, Ethyl's alcohol & food was born.

Although the Upper Eastside may sound like an unlikely place to open a Sexy Late-Night Bar, in a city scene that suspects anything cool can only happen downtown. The tired dictum that’s been declared by so many "I don't go above 14th Street" has always been around, but guess what? They did! The cool ones did, the artists, the designers, the musicians and the writers all did! Anyone that wanted to see or be seen on The Scene that was the island of Manhattan, they all did!

They went to Elaine's, Max's Kansas City, Maxwell’s Plum, The Hippopotamus, The Peppermint Lounge, The Copa, El Morroco, The Gaslight Club, The Playboy Club, Xenon, Jilly’s, Cafe Central and of course, they all tried to get into Studio 54!

Ethyl’s was built for those New Yorkers, who know this City and want to be surrounded by the Spirits of their Heroes, and the memories of a Scene that should never be forgotten!!!
