Manhattan mixology masters bring cocktails to Kolo Klub
Pilsener Haus & Biergarten owners Andrej Ivanov and Ladislav Sebestyan are proud to announce that acclaimed barmen Michael Neff and Kenneth McCoy, proprietors of Ward III and The Rum House, will be consulting on the opening cocktail program for Kolo Klub, the craftsman – built loft space on the second floor of 1422 Grand Street in Hoboken. Cocktails at Kolo Klub will introduce Hoboken to a level of mixology perfection heretofore untasted within its square‐mile borders. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, from 10:00pm until 2:00am, guests can savor a menu of artisanal libations and small bites in a stunning salon setting.
Pilsener Haus’ Andy Ivanov was one of the founders of Brooklyn’s Radegast Hall, which sparked the biergarten trend in the New York metropolitan area. At Pilsener Haus, Andy and partner Ladi brought the authentic biergarten experience to New Jersey. For Kolo Klub, the pair enlisted Michael and Kenneth to ensure that the loft would not just be “a damn fine bar,” but the first of its kind in Hoboken—a serious space for enjoying expertly handcrafted cocktails. Says Andy, “The experience of drinking a perfect cocktail in a really cool room is what we wanted to bring to Hoboken. Michael and Kenneth have built truly classic bars, and with their involvement we can offer that gold standard of mixology at Kolo Klub.”

Michael Neff and Kenneth McCoy are internationally renowned for the cocktails they make and the bars in which they serve them. A journeyman bartender, Michael has opened no less than ten bars in three states, and also writes a regular column about the culture of bartending for SeriousEats.com called, “From Behind The Bar”. Kenneth, a second-‐generation bartender/owner, has almost 20 years in the business, and has worked at some of New York’s top spirits bars. He has also earned, and defended the title of “Iron Bartender” two years in a row.
Together, with their partner Abdul Tabini, they opened Tribeca’s Ward III in 2009, and a year and half later brought cocktails to Times Square at The Rum House. Michael says, “We’re thrilled to be a part of Kolo Klub. Andy and Ladi are true visionaries, and we’re honored to have been asked to lend our sensibilities and approach to hospitality to such an inspired project.” Kenneth adds, “The Pilsener Haus team’s devotion to artistry, authenticity and quality is exceptional. The scope of the space and the intricacy of its details blew us away the minute we walked in, and we immediately saw the potential for what the space could become.”
In addition to expertly made classics like the Manhattan, Old Fashioned or Dark & Stormy, some of the original Kolo Klub cocktails created by Neff and McCoy evoke the Czech heritage of the Pilsener Haus team: “kolo” means bicycle, and the whimsical rider in the logo hints at a playful sense of fun and inventiveness. The Czech Sidecar combines Czechoslovakian Becherovka liqueur, Combier, orange bitters and citrus; the Bohemian brings together Beefeater gin, St Germain and maraschino liqueur; the Prague ’36, with Zubrowka vodka, Combier, Aperol, lemon juice, and apple puree is served in a coupe and topped with sparkling wine. Prost!
Designed by Jirka Kolar Interiors, Kolo Klub evokes the feel of a turn-‐of-‐the-‐century salon in old world Prague when intellectual and artistic creativity was inspiring change across much of Europe. The 30-‐foot long bar is fronted by divided glass panels set in hand-‐made metal framing and topped by metal in combination with oak. Under the arching curve of its wooden ceiling, customers can relax in a casual array of vintage leather armchairs sourced directly from Paris, or keep things cozy on one of the velvet couches. For those with a light appetite, a small menu of Austro-Hungarian bites will be offered from Pilsener Haus’ kitchen, acclaimed for its authenticity. The team behind Kolo Klub will bring Hoboken and New Jersey the cocktail experience they’ve been thirsting for.

Kolo Klub: Pilsener Haus teams up with Chef Anthony Pino
New Jersey’s newest event space, Kolo Klub will be available for bookings beginning July 2012, and is located on the second floor of 1422 Grand Street in Hoboken.
Chef Pino, his spouse and business partner Liz Pino, and the team at AD Catering, headed by Director of Operations Vince Crysler, are unique amongst caterers in that they help individuals and companies plan every conceivable detail of their events – especially weddings – from start to finish: not just menu development, but staff and service, linens, tabletop and rentals. Every event is distinguished by culinary excellence, and is executed with operational brilliance – from intimate gatherings to a large gala.
Kolo Klub is 4,000 sq. ft. of stellar Hoboken event space
The Kolo Klub partnership is special because it brings an exclusive culinary and guest services provider, the Chef and team renowned for Hoboken’s Bin 14 and The Dining Room, to one breathtaking loft space.
Located on the 2nd floor of the turn-of-the-century building that now houses the enormously popular Biergarten, this artfully renovated 4,000 square foot loft will be available beginning July for private catered events of 25 to almost 200 guests. Jennifer Lampert of Pilsener Haus will be the in-house events coordinator.
Guests will access the foyer of Kolo Klub via a private elevator, and enter the airy, expansive dining and events hall, with its handmade vaulted wood ceiling and rows of windows on its north and east sides (with a view of the Empire State Building). The spacious bar is backed by handcrafted green, white and gold tile. Period lighting and architectural details like portable subdividing screens have been incorporated into a subtle and flexible design by Jirka Kolar Interiors, the same team that brought period authenticity to life at Pilsener Haus. The Kolar and Pilsener Haus team jointly created Kolo Klub’s namesake logo; the kolo (their native Czech word for bicycle) and its whimsical rider evoke a playful sense of fun and creativity that will inspire events held in the space. There will also be a plush 30-seat private screening room available for guests.
Andy Ivanov, a founder of Brooklyn’s Radegast Hall, and part of the team that created Pilsener Haus and conceived Kolo Klub, states, “We couldn’t think of a better partner to create events in this space. The acclaim Chef Pino and his AD team have received, not to mention the reputation that their Hoboken restaurants enjoy, will make Kolo Klub a culinary and celebratory destination.”
“Now we have a home,” says Chef Pino. “We intend to make Kolo Klub a place for unforgettable gatherings. To have a space like this as a base of operations is inspiring, and we look forward to outdoing ourselves with each event.”
