NYT"With a seductive speakeasy vibe and a name nodding to Thelonious Monk, this plush lounge is a new addition to the Harlem nightlife scene."
THE NATIONAL HERALD
"Sugar Monk Lounge, 2292 Frederick Douglass Boulevard in Manhattan, is one of those things that make life in New York worth living. It is a speakeasy bar inspired entirely by the Harlem Renaissance era, a place that adores art and where the alchemy of drinks is triumphant."
THE INFATUATION"but if you’re looking for an impressive spot where you can have a conversation, this place is worth it."
"Now, while this 30+ seat space was full, there was no one standing. That is by design in order to maintain their guests’ comfort and an enjoyable decibel level in the space."
"Harlem’s historic speakeasies helped inspire this new uptown lounge. The swank spot comes from somewhat unexpected founders: Ektoras Binikos, a visual artist and mixologist, and Simon Jutras, a photographer and interior designer. "
THE CURIOUS UPTOWNER
"Sugar Monk–a new Harlem bar where the cocktails are almost too beautiful to drink"
