Post-Theater Bar: Where to Drink After ‘Mamma Mia!’
Where to drink in the disco decade
You’re going to see Mamma Mia at The Broadhurst Theatre and you need to know where to get a drink afterward? No problem! We’ve got the most hustlin’ 70s spot in town for your post-Broadway drinking moments.
The Show: Young Sophie, about to get married in the Greek Isles, wants to know: “Who’s my daddy?” in order to have the right man walk her down the aisle. During her quest to find out, Sophie’s mother not only relives her romantic past, but gets her girl group back together, too. Hits from the Swedish supergroup ABBA, from “Take A Chance On Me” to “Knowing Me, Knowing You,” string the story along with a disco beat.
The Bar: Feather your hair and break out the flared slacks before stepping through the threshold at this East Village time trip. It’s the 70s all over again within the groovy, wood-paneled walls here, from the “Soul Train” soundtrack to the throwback snacks and sips.
What to Drink: Some of the names may be cheesy, but there is real talent behind the bar program. So don’t be embarrassed to order well-made tiki-bar favorites such as the disco daiquiri (rum, lime, sugar, $13) or a lava flow (pina colada with strawberry puree, $14).
