The Jeffrey is a bespoke craft beer, cocktails and espresso bar combining two storefronts in one under the Queensboro Bridge on East 60th Street. During the morning rush and through early afternoon, The Jeffrey’s espresso and growler bar will be serving locally-roasted artisanal coffees from Brooklyn Roasting Co., an assortment of breakfast pastries and growlers of beer-to-go. In the afternoon and evening, The Jeffrey morphs into a craft beer and cocktail destination featuring a highly-advanced, custom-built draft system from which 30 rotating hard-to-find international and local brews will be poured with temperature and pressure precision. A separate growler bar tasting area with 10 taps will be used for brewery nights and beer/bourbon/whiskey tasting classes.
The Jeffrey prides itself on introducing people to new and unique flavors and tastes and debunking myths about beer and wine. Customers can therefore expect to find a unique wine list, featuring “orange” skin-fermented wines and an array of sustainable and organic wines. A full menu will be introduced in the new year, but for now The Jeffrey will be offering a selection of creative ”gastro-bites” from Chef Nick Ryan to complement the beer, including house made pickled veggies in jars, house made potato chips, cheese & charcuterie from Murray’s Cheese, house made beef jerky, various panini’s and crostini’s, and bar snacks like truffle popcorn, sriracha peas and duck fat-spiced nuts.
The Jeffrey emanates rustic-chic, industrial charm with a comfortable neighborhood vibe and environmentally-conscious design elements like a ceiling made from re-purposed keg pallets and custom-designed lighting fixtures re-purposed from old plumbing parts. The Jeffrey will also feature a spacious 65-person heated beer garden out back.
Our name derives from the movie “Get Him to the Greek” as in “Everyone Loves a Jeffrey!”
