Housed in a c.1861 building on Goshen’s Main Street, Pharmacy Kitchen & Bar is named for the brick storefront’s decades-long tenure as the town drugstore. The duo behind the two-year-old hospitality business took the pharmacy theme and ran with it, keeping the old chemist bottles, signage, and a cash register on display. These days though, the only prescriptions being filled are for craft cocktails, made with house biters and tinctures, and wood-fired eats made on an Argentine-style grill.
Buttercup Lobster Roll Pop-Up Will Also Return to the Same Location in A Dual Concept
When COVID put the kibosh on Kat Dunn’s plans to build out her fast-casual, neighborhood cocktail bar, Padrona, in 2020, she pivoted to a lobster roll pop-up dubbed Buttercup. With patio seating, to-go cocktails in Capri Sun-style packs, lobster rolls, crab cakes, and Coney Island hot dogs, the endless-summer concept enjoyed instant and spectacular success.
At Park Bar in Manhattan, beneath the massive arched mirror, Davina Thomasula and Megan Giometti met bartending. Now, years later, they are opening their own watering hole, Goodnight Kenny, in a historic building in Poughkeepsie, which in the '40s was a bar called The Ritz.

The combination coffee shop and wine bar is modeled after businesses that Carolyn Palmieri, owner, and her husband Tony Calderone found abroad. Offering coffee and croissants in the morning then transitioning to wine, cheese, and charcuterie in the evening, Palmieri has brought the quintessential Old World dining experience stateside.
The Happy Valley Arcade Bar opened on Main Street in Beacon last August with the intention of bringing the best of '80s and early '90s arcade gaming back to Beacon: NBA Jam and Ms. Pac-Man, a Salt-n-Pepa-themed vending machine with the words "Push It Real Good" painted on the dispensary flap, and enough Day-Glo graphics on the walls to make you feel as if you've stepped inside your favorite Trapper Keeper. A week later they had to unplug the games due to pandemic regulations. But now, the vintage games are back on, the cocktails are flowing, and the patio is open.
At their new location on 7th Street, Hudson favorite Isaan Thai Star serves up authentic Thai food with expanded seating capacity indoors and out with a massive patio that hosts live music and DJ every weekend.
