When you're throwing a birthday party in New York, the last thing you want is for it to feel inauthentic. Thats exactly the motivation behind The Ainsworth: its an upscale gastropub atmosphere with a touch of the rustic, fully focused on quality food, quality drinks... and then lots more quality drinks.
Designed to be a go-to hotspot for parties, games, and events for locals in the Chelsea area, The Ainsworth is an intelligent mix of chocolate banquettes, antique chandeliers, aged mirrors, decadent pine walls, and, of course, tons of HD televisions. A favorite for after-business crowds and savvy sports fans alike, as well as fashion shows, product launches, and many mostly remembered private events.
The Ainsworth takes classic American and turns it up an elegant notch, with sharables like locally sourced buffalo wings next to kosher-salted edamame. Move on to lobster sliders, the Ahi tuna burger, or braised short rib. Wash it all down with one of many excellent beer choices (Duvel, Magic Hat, Dog Fish Head) or try a signature cocktail, like The Braxton (gin, lychee puree, simple syrup, champagne) or To Your Health (Belvedere, basil puree, club soda on the rocks).
Getting another year older doesn't have to mean pretending its still your 21st birthday party, but it doesn't have to mean boring and stuffy, either. The Ainsworth is a great middle ground for a birthday party with upscale atmosphere, excellent food and drink menu, and a crowd of local New Yorkers ready to rip through as much of that drink menu as possible.
