It’s been long in the making, but a rep for Atera writes in to tell us that the restaurant’s downstairs bar will be open to the public as of tomorrow night. What to expect: Matthew Lightner–designed drinks like the Sumac Sour (sumac, pisco, and lemon) and Winter Walnut (rye, rum, walnut liqueur, honey, and orange bitters). Drinks will range in price from $15 to $18, and, as at the restaurant, space will be hard to come by. The bar — which will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. — seats twelve, and spots are available by reservation only, which are accepted via e-mail at this address.
