The much-anticipated pool bar at Vagabond Hotel is officially open for business. The place received its liquor license just this week and is ready to welcome the neighborhood and hotel guests in the newly renovated, retro-luxe space.

While the pool is open to hotel guests only, the hotel's bar will be serving classic American cocktails to guests and locals alike. Beverage manager Paul Schroeder makes the Vagabond Collins with vodka, homemade lemon lime juice, and simple syrup with angostura bitters.
"We are bringing ingredients in-house and making all our own juice, grenadine, and simple syrups," said Schroeder. He added that there would be no molecular gastronomy at the bar, just simple classic cocktails, and that guests will be impressed with the happy-hour prices and operating hours, which are still in the works.
Regular prices for cocktails range from $12 to $14 with well drinks priced at $10. The pool bar hours are 5 to 11 p.m. Developer and preservationist Avra Jain told us she is taking special care to keep the noise down out of respect for neighbors.More »
