Bar CYRK outsideUpdate September 7, 2017- Told you so. A local blogger said that this place has closed.

Update September 27, 2015- Almost one year ago, Bar Cyrk opened. I had a feeling that it would not take off. I walked in last night on a Saturday and four dudes were drinking.

What has been your experience there? Did I step in on an unusually slow night?

I randomly decided to go to Bar CYRK on the night which happened to be its grand opening. It is located at 88 Thomas Street (around the corner from J. Crew on Hudson Street, near Bouley) off the beaten path of Hudson Street. The owners, Eric Schlagman and Miriam Rothstein, also own the entire building.

Martini Bar CYRKThe owners have spent four years constructing this establishment with their own hands as a labor of love. The pewter bar top and tables were pounded into shape by Eric. The many thousands of wall tiles were hand placed by his spouse and co-owner Miriam.

The interior design, which is that of a circus theme, has three custom-blown glass chandeliers representing the three rings of a circus and a gold ceiling shaped like a tent. This place will make a sophisticated wealthy Tribecan or BPC patron feel comfortable.
