Lovecraft Bar NYC opened this past weekend at 50 Avenue B at East Fourth Street. As the name suggests, it's an homage to horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.
Per the bar's Facebook description:
This place is great for LOVECRAFT fans, fans of steampunk, lovers of local art, lovers of live music, and of course lovers of great food and good drinks.
Dangerous Minds put it this way: "[It] looks like the perfect place to eat, drink and discuss all things Cthulhu. The eldritch interior design and artwork was created by artist Benjamin Enzfelder, and he has certainly given the bar a great Lovecraftian atmosphere."
EVG reader Thomas Anomalous stopped by this weekend and shared these photos.

The cocktail menus feature an original pulp fictiony designs...
There's also a subterranean bar and stage that will feature acoustic performances on Thursday evenings.
The food service launches next week. Lovecraft will hold an official grand opening next month.
Affaire closed here last August. Previously, the space was home to the unpopular-with-neighbors China 1 club-restaurant combo.
