Recreation is the latest installment from restaurateur and nightlife operator Jon Neidich of Golden Age Hospitality (Acme, Happiest Hour, Slowly Shirley, Tijuana Picnic), that opened in October 2018 within Moxy NYC Downtown hotel in the Financial District. Located upstairs at Moxy, in an expansive 5,000 sq. ft. locale, Recreation is a communal co-working space by day and a bar by night - serving as the ultimate living room for the neighborhood.
Playing into a retro theme, the cocktails - conceived by Golden Age Hospitality's Beverage Director Jim Kearns - reimagines 1:1 drinks, elevated Screwdrivers, Spiked Punch Bowls, Keg-tapped Cocktails and Large-Format drinks served in unique vessels, featuring housemade tonics and sodas. Drawing inspiration from the rec room at your neighbor's house, Recreation features an old school Arcade Machine with games like Ms. Pacman, Centipede and Donkey Kong, a Twister Board painted on the floor, Jenga, and - designed to host events or just play ball - a half court-sized basketball court.
Recreation is located upstairs at 26 Ann Street (between Broadway and Nassau Streets), upstairs at Moxy NYC Downtown.
