The Hanger Bar was a beloved dive on East Third Street with a pool table, DJ booth and a vintage clothes for sale up front. It closed some months ago, and owners Jay Schneider and Natalka Burian have given the place a serious face lift while keeping the drinking/clothing consumption combo. Bespoke men's suits will now be sold, but even more eye-catching is the antique sewing machine they've turned into a beer tap. For the curious, it's named Elsa after Italian-born fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli, who lived in New York during Prohibition.

The official opening party is tonight from 9 p.m. to midnight, during which time the house cocktail, The Elsa (applejack, lemon, brown sugar, orange bitters and gruet blanc de noirs), will make its debut. The address is 217 East 3rd Street. (917) 882-7395.
