Of course Will Ferrell is getting his own bar. And of course fans are going to be pouring in from all over the country. Zach Neil and Brian Link have just opened Stay Classy New York on the lower east side of Manhattan. And it's a shrine not just to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy but everything the actor has ever done.
The best part about this new bar is that is offers plenty of cocktails named after some of Will Ferrell's biggest hit comedies. And the artisanal menu comes packed with plenty of inside jokes from Anchorman. Step Brothers has spawned the 'Did We Just Become Best Friends?' double shot for you and your best friend, whom can redeem his shot at a later date. Order a Dirty Mike and the Boys from The Other Guys, and you'll be handed two draft beers and a house shot. And Anchorman has inspired the Glass Case of Emotion cocktail, which is muddled rosemary and peach, whiskey, lemon juice and simple syrup.
There are several other cocktails inspired by Anchorman including Great Odin's Raven, which is light rum, ginger beer and lemon. Milk Was a Bad Choice mixes Vanilla Stoli, Vanilla Schnapps, milk and ice. Smelly Pirate Hooker is a Jalapeño Margarita mixed with Tequila, Stoli jalapeño, Orange Juice, sour mix and Lime Juice. And naturally, the Whale's Vagina, which is also called the San Diego. It brings together Vodka, triple sec, orange juice and Sloe gin together in one glass.
Other movies that have inspired cocktails at Stay Classy New York include Zoolander, which gets the Mugatu Mule, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, which gets the Shake and Bake, and Old School, which gets the 'We're Going Streaking' Adult Kool Aid inspired drink. Of course, it just wouldn't be a Will Ferrell-themed bar without something on the menu called the F*cking Catalina Wine Mixer, which is house made sangria. All of these concoctions sound delicious, we're sure! About the Will Ferrell bar experience, proprietor Zach Neil had this to say.
"This bar is kind of like the place where a 35-or 40-year-old person could come and sit and not be intimidated by loud techno music but still be surrounded by things that are funny and ridiculous and kind of get it. That's what Will Ferrell has always meant to us."
Stay Classy New York officially opened its doors on October 1st. The two owners plan on continuing to fill the bar with more Will Ferrell memorabilia, artwork and themed cocktails, offering patrons a slightly different experience every time they visit. The establishment is getting ready for an Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy inspired Halloween Party, which will get underway on Friday night, October 30th. There isn't any word yet on when Will Ferrell himself plans to visit. But one thing's for certain, when visiting Stay Classy, you can order Scotchy Scotch Scotch at a very reasonable price.
