The Beagle


Mixologist Dan Greenbaum of The Beagle - New York, NY

162 Avenue A
New York, NY 10009
Hours: Mon-Sun 6pm-1am

Dan Greenbaum has a deep love of Sherry, but his mixo tastes are confidently exploratory—hence The Beagle, the bar Greenbaum co-owns and manages in the East Village, named in honor of Darwin’s famous expedition. Greenbaum’s Beagle has experienced its own evolution. Now in its second iteration as a casual dining and cocktail spot (with an even more extensive Sherry list), the space is sunlit and elegant by day, with rich notes of blue, and cozily intimate by night. And while the dinner menu keeps things fairly low-key, the drinks menu is a manifestation of Greenbaum and Head Bartender Tom Richter’s authoritative imaginations. Greenbaum’s cocktails inevitably showcase his passion for Sherry—the complex Andorra Cocktail combines Manzanilla with Blanche Armagnac and Dolin Blanc Vermouth—but he also plays skillfully in other corners of the cocktail sandbox. The Smog Cutter balances mezcal, Negro Modelo, ginger, and cucumber for a refreshing, aromatic cocktail.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Andorra: Blanche Armagnac Castarède, Manzanilla Sherry, Dolin Blanc Vermouth, and Regan’s Orange Bitters
  • Smog Cutter: Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, Negra Modelo, Tomr’s Tonic, Cucumber, Lime, and Ginger
