Patent Coffee & Patent Pending

OPENED684 DAYS AGO

Patent Coffee and Patent Pending are a café and cocktail bar respectively, open now in NoMad.

Patent Coffee will open during the day, and by night, guests will enter through a hidden door at the back to find Patent Pending,  the underground bar.

The Spot:

The two concepts are located in the historic Radio Wave Building – former home and workspace of Nikola Tesla – and this is where the design finds some of its inspiration. It utilizes the original basement arches, with custom metalwork and marble surfaces to create a light, stylish space. There is a custom-made sign in the entryway made up of channel letters, which change from day to night.

The Food:

The treats on offer at Patent Coffee include pastries from Pain D’Avignon, chia parfaits and cookies (baked fresh every hour, with two recipes from Bon Appetit’s Claire Saffitz).

Patent Pending has small plates including a bacon grilled cheese, a fried chicken sandwich, tomato soup and beef chilli.

The Drink:

At Patent Coffee, you’ll find a selection of teas, and cold brew and grab-and-go coffees – with beans from a Brooklyn purveyor with an emphasis on sustainable sourcing and world varietals.

At Patent Pending, the (beautifully designed) cocktail menu is split into three categories: Energy, Frequency, Vibration and Descent. The drinks, by Harrison Ginsberg and Nick Rolin, include Radio Waves (tequila, mezcal, agricole rhum, basil, Thai chili, lime, cucumber), Hit By a Taxi (Japanese whisky, Armagnac, sweet vermouth, Pu’erh tea, curacao, star anise), and Made from Memory (American gin, apple brandy, orange liqueur, fig leaf, Earl Grey tea, cream). It’s a science lesson we can get behind.

The Damage:

Cocktails at Patent Pending are $16, with wines by the glass at the same price, and beers at $8. Small plates range from $3–$14.

In a Nutshell:

Location-based theming can be a bit hit or miss in places like this, but the subtle nods in the décor and the gorgeous menu are really an example of how to do it right. Those cocktails sound gorgeous, and we love a day-to-night makeover – you could even do outfits to match.
