Located downstairs from The Ribbon Midtown, Blue carries The Ribbon’s trademark hospitality into the evening hours with craft cocktails, a menu of Blue Ribbon specialties by Brothers Eric and Bruce Bromberg, including their famous Raw Bar, Caviar, Fried Chicken, and modern musical programming, all culminating in a new kind of midtown nightlife experience.
Blue was designed to be a vibrant social club in the vein of New York’s vinyl age for those who wish to extend their evening after dining at The Ribbon, grab a pre- or post-theater snack, or listen to some late-night tunes. Music serves as the universal theme, with a design celebrating NYC’s great musical heritage and paying homage to some of the city’s most iconic recording artists. Specially commissioned murals from artist Alex Yost encircle the space, creating a gallery of NY musical icons with a nod to Picasso’s “blue period” of the early 20th century.
Music programming for Blue features curated DJs playing Funk, Blues, Soul, R&B, Rock and Jazz. Blue will be a neighborhood destination for those seeking a more refined and curated entertainment experience; coupled with a relaxed yet elevated atmosphere of a boutique lounge, Blue seeks to eschew the trappings of “traditional” nightlife in favor of a more cultured and inclusive approach
