BANZARBAR is a new twenty seat cocktail bar on the second floor of Freemans Restaurant. The bar was inspired by early 20th Century explorers and the BANZARE Antarctic expeditions. BANZARBAR brings exotic ingredients from around the world to their cozy basecamp hidden away on New York’s Lower East Side. Freemans owners
Taavo Somer and William Tigertt launched this venture in order to create a new elevated
cocktail experience within their beloved New York City restaurant. Eryn Reece, formerly of Death & Co. and Mayahuel, helms the ship as Head Bartender while Chef Harold Villarosa, of Freemans, has created an original seafood bar menu.
