Residents-only bars popping up in new residential towers

Some even come with butler service

At WeLive, an apartment tower in the Financial District by WeWork, residents can gather in a speakeasy style bar off a communal kitchen to mix cocktails and socialize. Elsewhere, residents of pricey new developments can enjoy similar setups, with private coffee and cocktail bars in their buildings.

Apparently, it’s the latest high-end amenity to sweep residential real estate.

“I know when they come at 9 o’clock in the morning, who likes a glass of water sparkling, who likes it still, who likes a macchiato,” Ernesto Graniero, a butler at an in-house aperitivo bar in Palazzo Del Sol, a condominium on Fisher Island, Fla., told the New York Times. “I know when they come back to me at 12 o’clock who likes the ham with cheese and a touch of mustard.”

Many of the bars operate like members-only clubs and are reserved strictly for residents, according to the Times. At 111 Murray Street, a luxury condominium in TriBeCa, the building serves its residents complimentary breakfast every morning at Patisserie, a coffee bar.

“Every detail matters,” Winston Fisher, a partner of Fisher Brothers, which is developing the building with Witkoff, told the Times. “When you walk out of your apartment, you have something to look forward to. You have [pastries from] Baked TriBeCa every morning waiting for you. You have the smells.” [NYT]Christopher Cameron
