A review of Sanatorium in Manhattan’s Alphabet City
Located at 14 Avenue C in Manhattan’s Alphabet City, Sanatorium is a hospital-themed cocktail-focused bar/lounge. The layout includes a standing room only bar on the left side of the space, with the majority of the space taken up by low-level lounge-style seating. Cocktails are all the rage right now and, at $15/drink, Sanatorium’s cocktail price is somewhat mid-range for Manhattan. In addition, staff was friendly, but we wonder how long a place like this will last in its current location on Avenue C. Stop in here on your next Avenue C NYC bar crawl. Note that Sanatorium has a rather late opening hour. On the day of our visit, the spot opened for business at 8pm.
