The Hidden Pearl

OPENED18 DAYS AGO

Wanpaku Ramen launches cocktail bar The Hidden Pearl in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

The team behind Wanpaku Ramen have partnered with Leif Huckman – of Donna Cocktail Club in Williamsburg – to add this speakeasy cocktail bar to their ramen spot. The Hidden Pearl joins other great new cocktail bars in Greenpoint, including dreamy Californian destination The Springs.

The Spot:

Tucked away in the back of Wanpaku Ramen, The Hidden Pearl boasts a sleek design with white walls, a marble bar and brass elements, while green plants give the Japanese spot an unexpected tropical feel. With only a few tables and minimal seating at the bar, The Hidden Pearl is definitely an intimate setting – perfect for date night.

The Food:

If you thought The Hidden Pearl would also serve ramen (like at Wanpaku Ramen), think again. The menu focuses on Japanese small plates, featuring options such as spicy tuna over butter-seared rice, clams steamed in a spicy garlic sake broth, and buns with braised pork and spicy mayo BBQ sauce – yes, you need to love a bit of heat in your meal. The Hidden Pearl also serves Japanese delicacies, including “Katsuo Shuto” (bonito stomach lined over cucumber) and “Hotaru Ika Okizuke” (marinated squid with oba leaf and watami seaweed).

The Drinks:

Created by mixologists Jeremy Oertel and Natasha David (of Nitecap), The Hidden Pearl serves many sake and whiskey-based cocktails, with even a section on the menu dedicated to the Highball. Highlights include the “Cherry Point” (made with Ume Plum whisky and vanilla cherry bark bitters) and the “Kariyushi Club Cocktail” (featuring Japanese whisky, passion fruit and peach).

The Damage:

Dishes vary between $5 and $14; cocktails are around $12-$16.

In a Nutshell:

As The Hidden Pearl is located at the rear of Wanpaku Ramen, it would be rude not to do drinks here after dinner…
