Sip is a new bar located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, serving beer, wine, and yummy Italian bites. We have been in business for 3 months and have seen a great response from the community so far. However there are few additions that we feel are necessary to make in order to offer the best service to our customers and ensure a long and prosperous future for our new company. We are undertaking a few projects simultaneously to fulfill these customer requests, and they are equally important to us at Sip. We are going to expand the bar area, as to allow for more seating for patrons, and in addition, we are expanding our alcohol license to now include cocktails and a full beverage menu!
We want to expand our drink menu to offer specialty martinis and unique seasonal cocktails, something that is missing in our neighborhood. We know that this addition to our menu will be a wonderful addition to our business and also to the options for community members looking to spend a fun night out on the town!
About the bar: Sip is a small bar nestled in the corner of the Putnam Triangle in Clinton Hill, a new pedestrian plaza created by the FAB Fulton Alliance to promote business and community in the neighborhood. Sip serves 4 beers on drafts, 8 beers by the bottle, and 14 wines by the bottle or glass. We also serve Italian bites such as an Antipasto Plate, a Caprese Salad, multiple Paninis, a homemade Personal Pizza, and beautiful desserts to finish. This kind of establishment is new to this Brooklyn neighborhood and is helping to fill a gap for those who want a nice place to go out and have a drink or a bite in a relaxed environment. We also have a tv screen tucked behind the bar that plays movies for the patrons' entertainment, and we also enjoy playing the big game that might be on from night to night.
Press: In the short time that Sip has been open, we have been featured by a local online publication called The Brownstoner, a site that has over 2 million pageviews per month. Check out the post here: http://www.brownstoner.com/blog/2013/08/wine-and-beer-bar-opens-near-putnam-triangle/
Also, Sip has been featured in a story for BCAT; the video has subsequently been posted on many local blogs. The video is posted above. Check us out!
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge that we face in this endeavor is time. The application and licensing process can take several months, but fear not! We will be open to the public, serving treats and smiles, until the final approval comes through. We will have a few days of altering the space physically, but it shouldn't take away from precious hang time with our valued customers. So you can come in, check out the progress, and have an awesome night with us in the meantime! We are dedicated to this beautiful place and its long future in the community. Only bigger and better from here!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
