Swanky Essex Street cocktail bar White Star is up for lease, according to a listing. White Star opened three years ago with a gleaming marble bar, specialty absinthe service, and co-owner Sasha Petraske at the helm.
Following a temporary shutter, White Star tried to double its space and planned a bar-snack menu; when Petraske left this year, the bar's new owners scrapped both the food and the old cocktail list (though drinks were said to be available by special request).
With a liquor license in place, the 800-square-foot swanky cocktail bar is on the market for $4500 per month, with the option to lease an additional 800 square feet. If you already miss White Star, it shines on: Someday you will find the it, caught beneath the landslide, in a champagne supernova in the sky.
