Harry’s Sidecar, a tasting room next to Harry’s Downtown, opens to the public this weekend. As of last night, guests can reserve tables at the gorgeous establishment, and enjoy upscale items such as high-quality steak and seafood, pristine craft beer, and delicious cocktails.
Co-owner Trevor Sherwin said that the new room is adjacent to the Harry’s dining room, as well as a separate entity; and yet, it is still an exciting addition to Harry’s, hence the name “Sidecar.” Sherwin said that Harry’s Sidecar has allowed the kitchen to work with the highest end meats that are available, as well as to provide upscale small plates that are not offered in the dining room. The cocktails at Harry’s Sidecar are experimental and top notch, and include ingredients such as bitters made in-house and dried fruit.
“They’re a little more nuanced and spirit-focused,” Sherwin said. “It gives us a chance to tip our cap to mixology, and start playing around with some really fun stuff.”
With Harry’s Sidecar, Sherwin’s goal is to launch a competitive happy hour, as well as a reservation-focused destination for higher-end food. Harry’s Sidecar will be open Wednesday-Saturday starting at 4pm, with happy hour from 4-6pm; they are now taking reservations online, with the bar as first come-first serve. Sherwin anticipates the reservations filling up in the first month, and highly recommends that guests book in advance.
Sherwin is driven to make Harry’s Sidecar a successful addition to Harry’s Downtown, and credits his staff for stepping up to prepare.
“I think we’re headed in the right direction so far,” he said.
