The Dead Rabbit Guys Are Taking Over Part of Pier A

The Harrison Room at Pier AThe Wall Street Journal reports that the owners of the Dead Rabbit bar in FiDi are taking over the Harrison Room on the second floor of Pier A . They’re planning a Cuba-themed bar there called Blacktail, hoping it’ll open in June.

When the Harrison Room opened just over a year ago, here’s what I wrote:

The green industrial carpet, polished wood, green and maroon leather(-ish?) upholstery, etched glass panels, little red-shaded lamps on the bar…. No, it’s a hotel bar. It’s a university club, or—yes!—the bar at a place like the New York Athletic Club, where there’s no room for contemporary taste, or even change at all.

Suddenly, the Cuba theme doesn’t sound like such a jump, does it? Anyway, it’s great news for FiDi and Pier A. These photos are of the Harrison Room from when it debuted.
