Part social lounge, part tasting room..all vibes. BABEL LOFT + TASTING RM is the FIRST Black women-owned and operated membership social club and micro-distillery in New York City.
Bridging how and what we imbibe, our micro-distillery enables us to host the Babel Spirits brand tasting room, highlight our premiere spirit, BABEL GIN, and develop our spirits portfolio.
As an evolution of our current community space, beloved cocktail lounge, ODE TO BABEL, our intention is to continually push the envelope in how we create experiential spaces, build community, imbibe, and express unapologetic joy through connecting IRL.
Our space will house two full bars, ample seating, light faire, and a 5 gallon column still- which will support our in-house spirit development of botanicals for our gin, amari, and next, our American Rum.
