Mr. Purple is a new rooftop bar and restaurant located on the 15th floor of Hotel Indigo Lower East Side of Manhattan in New York City. Mr. Purple is operated by the Gerber Group, which operates several upscale bars in New York, Atlanta and Ft. Lauderdale including Whiskey Blue.
The new Mr. Purple captures the vibrant and artistic spirit of the Lower East Side. Designed by internationally acclaimed design firm Crème Design, the space recreates an artist-loft ambiance with indoor and outdoor areas displayed through the use of reclaimed wood structures, juxtaposed with concrete, metal, free hanging lights, and contemporary wooden furniture. Using downtown New York as a backdrop, the 3,000 sq. ft. interior space is complemented by two terraces. The smaller 750 sq. ft. eastern terrace is perfect for an intimate gathering. The larger terrace located on the west side of the space measures 5,000 sq. ft., and is outfitted with its own swimming pool, bar and variety of seating options including chaise lounges, banquettes, and high top communal tables.
Mr. Purple’s menu connects with local culinary staples such as Melt Bakery, il laboratorio del gelato, Yonah Schimmel Knish Bakery, 2nd Avenue Deli, and Beecher’s Handmade Cheese, in addition to featuring locally sourced ingredients.
The bar menu features an expansive collection of small-batch spirits, regionally brewed craft beers, universal wine offerings and a rotating selection of Gerber Group’s classic and modern cocktails that highlight market fresh ingredients. Signature sips include refined twists on classic cocktails like the GG Manhattan and Old Fashioned, in addition to craft cocktails carbonated and bottled in-house.
Mr. Purple also serves fresh cold-pressed juices and handcrafted coffee from local purveyors Liquiteria and Irving Farm Coffee Roasters.
The rooftop bar is located in the newly opened Hotel Indigo at 171 Ludlow Street, the flagship property of the Intercontinental Hotels Group brand.
