New Harlem Bar Angel of Harlem

 The new bar features Caribbean-inspired cocktails and Latin food.

HARLEM — The owner of Corner Social teamed up with the owner of Midtown’s Galway Pub to open a new bar.

Angel of Harlem, at 2272 Frederick Douglass Blvd., features Latin and Caribbean food with full bar and island-inspired drinks that feature Ting cocktails and sorrel mojitos.

“We had really positive feedback last night,” said co-owner Eimear Conway. “People said it was something missing in the area.”

“The core of our business and our business model is more of a bar,” she said. “There are tons of restaurants but there is no real bar scene.”

“We are not here to change the neighborhood we are here to enhance the best of it,” Angelone said. “We make sure to employ from the neighborhood. I think that’s the core of why this works. People of the neighborhood they come in and feel represented.”
