Jeepney, voted #1 Tiki program in New York City.

liquid city guide jeepney 2 1

 

Jeepney is named after a Philippine national symbol of ingenuity and resilience: American jeeps left behind by U.S. troops after World War II, which locals structurally altered, garishly decorated, and used as public transportation. Similarly, the owners of Jeepney in New York flexed their creativity in co-opting the tiki bar, an American concept built on Filipino immigrant labor in mid-20th-century California, to catapult you almost 8,500 miles westward into the Pacific. They spend hours infusing syrups and steeping and squeezing cashews for house-made orgeat. The result are drinks like the Pacific Theatre – rum layered with an otherworldly funk-flecked sweetness from pandan syrup — and the depth-charged Ube Mai Tai that warrants repeat visits.
