Fame BarWicker Park | Website
Fame Bar is part bar, part art gallery. The bar, which will be in the former Paradise Cantina space, aims to showcase local and national artists alongside a menu of cocktails and small plates. Craft cocktails such as a pineapple rum punch, a cucumber martini and a bacon Manhattan will be shaken or stirred at a "mixology stage," which can convert to a DJ booth. Chef Sam "SammyD" Demarco has designed a menu of small plates—called "Sammy D'Lites"—including tuna poke atop plantain chip "nachos", an FBBBLT (Fame's Bao Bun BLT) and an Avocado Toasty sandwich.
