Joshua Richholt (Founder of The Well and The Wick) carries on his historical style in a new cocktail and whiskey bar in the East Village.

Situated in an old tenement building from 1860, which once housed an oyster bar during that heyday of New York’s seafood fame, Down & Out will return to that history with an extensive raw bar, other fresh sustainable seafood and more.

The warm interior is reminiscent of a time when the area was filled with newcomers to New York just looking for a comfortable setting for a drink and some food after a hard day’s work.
