They cut the ribbons at a speakeasy and completed Basquiat’s name

Jean-Michel Basquiat He is an American painter from the 1980s. To his credit, Facundo Iturrat In 2014, he opened a popular pichincha bar called Basquiat that showcased his art. A decade later, he cut the ribbons for two new gastronomic establishments in honor of the painter and in the same space (Alvear 23): Jean (Basquiat’s first name), which is a hot-dog business, and Michel (his middle name), a speakeasy or hidden bar set in New York.

“We opened Jean last week, and now we’re opening another part of the store called Michel. There are two businesses on the same property. The one in front is called Jean Dogs Too Hot, which is a hot dog and beer place. There is a secret door that leads to Michel Clandestino, which is the speakeasy,” said Iturrat.

Speakeasies (or Speakeasy) were establishments that illegally sold alcoholic beverages during the period called Prohibition (1920–1922) in the United States. “I brought this idea from the United States, where a business is built after another business. It is a hidden bar, but the address is clearly known, where it is, and it is legal,” he explained.

“We put Michel in New York, where Basquiat was born. You are like a street; there are liquor stores, graffiti, washed coins, colors, food, and drinks that are oriented to New York. There are Yankee, Latin, and neighborhood-style signature drinks. , as well as wines. And the food is half plastic, with many parts, but with a twist to make it sophisticated in presentation, but not as the price, “comment he.

Regarding the hot dog area (Jean), Iturrat distinguishes the hot dog from the traditional hot dog and describes it in the United States: “A hot dog is something that tastes better than a hot dog. It has guacamole, cantimpalo, sauerkraut, and other things. Also, we’re asking for the hot dog because it’s associated with New York.” And he added, “Jean Dogs Too Hot is all pink. The buns are pink, the floor is pink, the lights are pink, the bar is pink, the furniture is pink, and everything is decorated in the eighties way, which is the decade of Basquiat. The names of the hot dogs were New York, Brooklyn, Harlem, Bronx, and Chelsea. They had all the names of Manhattan.”

The area has an area of ​​360 m2. Michel (Speakeasy) operates from Wednesday to Sunday from 8 p.m. to cutoff. There will be live bands, DJs, and events. Currently, Jean is open Monday through Sunday from 6 p.m. until cutoff. In March, the doors will open at 10 a.m. with a cafeteria, donuts, and more.

Thinking about the future, Iturrat concluded: “We have the intention of expanding abroad.”
