Bar Veloce Looks to the Bowery for Latest Location
Bar Veloce, the decades-old establishment, is set to expand its roster yet again. This time to the beloved Bowery.
“As huge fans of the area with its rich history, we couldn’t resist the opportunity,” Twomey noted in an email.
What will set apart the Bowery Veloce is daytime hours. Twomey tells us that “due to the amount of commercial activity in the area,” their passion of espresso will be exercised.
If all goes to plan, expect an opening sometime in the fall.
Twomey founded the original Bar Veloce in March 2000, so the COVID-motivated closing stultified any glorious twentieth anniversary celebrations. The original idea for the bar was inspired by a European motorcycle trip Twomey took in his heyday, where he and a companion found respite in small local bars, for quick pit-stop type refortification.
The Bowery marks location number seven for Bar Veloce, but only five are currently operational due to pandemic-related challenges.
“I spent my youth coming from Boston to CBGBs every chance I could get, hence the Bowery is forever etched in my soul as the core of New York,” Twomey says.
