Recreation is the latest installment from restauranteur and nightlife operator Jon Neidich of Golden Age Hospitality (Acme, Happiest Hour, Slowly Shirley, Tijuana Picnic), that opened in October 2018. Located upstairs at Moxy NYC Downtown Hotel in the Financial District, Recreation is a 5000 sq. ft. communal co-working space by day and a bar by night - serving as the ultimate living room for the neighborhood.

The cocktail program—designed by Jim Kearns—showcases one of the most advanced tap cocktail systems in the country. The food menu features all-day, evening, and late night dishes from Chef Akhtar Nawab of Alta Calidad. Drawing inspiration from the rec room at your neighbor's house, Recreation also features an old school Arcade Machine with games like Ms. Pacman and a half court-sized basketball court– designed to host events or just play ball.

DJs spin records Thursday-Saturday, from 8pm until late.
