Antik Opens Tonight

Antik is open for business as of tonight - if you are on the invite list that is - and according to reports, there is no bar in the joint. Customers will be ordering all drinks from cocktail servers who will then pop back to a service bar where they will be made.

Weird concept, since patrons who enjoy cocktails also enjoy speaking to the knowledgeable mixologists who create them. Call us crazy, but this is probably the final nail in the coffin of New York's speakeasy trend.

I was there last night and there is definitely a bar, and a lot of models . The place although is incredible small. I think you should send Nicolette there on a recon mission and watch her mingle. This could make for a great new reality show.

took one picture last night, pretty tight place. The couches were less than amazing, but seemed to be good people having a good time. Easy access between upstairs and the bar downstairs.

WTF?? You cant get a drink in this place to save your life. Couldn't find a waitress and there is definetley no bar for patrons. Only for waitresses if you were lucky enough to find one.
Found out later today when I was talking to some friends that this place doesnt have a liquor license or something and that's why you won't find a bar in Antique. Anyway not sure where those models were, but if they would have been there I might have been able to stay around longer and die of thirst!

Downstairs guy.

Go through the door that appears to be a coat check when you walk in on your right. Take those stairs down and your in the bar. I thought that was obvious.

This place sucks, definetley not hipster or cool. The people are whack, service is horrible, and models?? Who are they kidding? Obviously they are writing their own good comments on here

Thank you! I'm so sick of these "speak easies" that are being rolled out one after another. Would you like a honey infused, peppermint, pomegranate, ginger, fizz????!!

With all due respect, I have to be hesitant of a place that spells "hors doeuvres", as o'doerves, or whatever.
