We have a vision of a forward-thinking and sophisticated place where neighborhood residents, cocktail aficionados, foreign visitors, and the arts community will all gather. At Sugar Monk, art will meet mixology.

Binikos’ ingenious art cocktails are created from the most unusual elements and thrill the most discerning palates. The drinks will be made with the freshest ingredients, the finest spirits, and an array of artisanal bitters, infusions, and extracts, all beautifully presented.

Ektoras Binikos, mixologist and artist; Simon Jutras, commercial photographer and designer of interiors & furniture.

Together we will operate Sugar Monk (in Central Harlem, NYC), an intimate venue where art, mixology, and alchemy will combine to transcend the senses and elate the most discriminating palates. Our creative and entrepreneurial backgrounds, enhanced by two decades of immersion in New York's art community, have so far resulted in award-winning mixology programs for some of NYC's finest establishments, and a successful photography & design portfolio with many notable clients. This is a very special moment in Harlem's history, and the perfect time to open Sugar Monk.
