Roth Bar

OPENED201 DAYS AGO

Originally perched in a smaller space at Hauser & Wirth’s 18th street gallery, Roth Bar now calls the 23rd street gallery home – the space is bigger and has been updated by Björn, Oddur, and Einar Roth, the creators.  Son and grandsons of inspiring German-born Swiss artist Dieter Roth, the liquor and coffee bar is made from locally-sourced salvaged materials.

The Spot

Located between 10th and 11th Avenues on 23rd street, Roth Bar is in the heart of Chelsea – one of New York’s most famous gallery districts.  A mix of scavenged wood and salvaged materials, the Roth Bar is a mélange of heavy metal items like fishing barges, junk televisions playing vintage Roth videos, and softer elements, like plastic flowers and brightly-colored electric lights.  Roller skates from the Roxie nightclub sit next to a carved chocolate bust, while paint cans drip slowly drip.

The Food

The menu from Roth Bar, like the décor, is locally sourced from Great Performances, a premier catering organization.  The menu features fresh, seasonal American fare that, much like the space it’s served in, is as interesting to the eye as it is to the palate.  The menu includes Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Milk and Garam Masala, Forest Mushroom Flatbread with Roasted Onion, Preserved Tomato, and Pecorino, Tandoori-Spiced Cauliflower, Curried Chickpeas and Cilantro Oil.  Bar snacks include Prosciutto-Infused Spinach, Basil Deviled Eggs, and housemade Roth Bar Pickles, complemented by drinks such as espressos, coffees, teas, and tisanes, as well as housemade sodas, like rosemary-lemon, cardamom, and orange-beer.

In a nutshell

Originally a concept bar from Dieter Roth himself in 1980, Roth Bar is as visually appealing as it is on the palate.  It is definitely a must-go while gallery hopping through Chelsea, for both the art and the food.
