Earlier this month, "Entourage" star Adrian Grenier helped open VNYL, a new bar with an interior that looks more like a classic 1970s home than a cocktail lounge. The three-floor space in New York City's East Village has table-side mixologists, a private champagne room, pre-batched cocktails, and 36 beers on draft.
Grenier befriended VNYL's owner, James Morrissey, after becoming a regular at Morrissey's other Manhattan bar, The Late Late. But when pressed for more details on the two's friendship, Morrissey makes it clear he's not one for celebrity gossip. The idea behind making Grenier VNYL's music director was pretty simple: Morrissey trusts Grenier's taste in music.
Let's take a look at the brand-new space.
