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.”

Hurricane Sandy: Help Someone Who Needs Temporary Housing Today


Hurricane Sandy has affected millions of people. But it has also provided an invitation to share space in truly meaningful ways. Airbnb is a social website that connects people who have space to spare with those who are looking for a place to stay. Through their experiences on Airbnb, guests and hosts build real connections with real people from all over the globe. Guests gain access to unique and distinctive spaces and immerse themselves in the culture of their destinations. We call that traveling like a human! Hosts can effortlessly showcase their spaces to an audience of millions, whether they have an urban apartment or countryside castle.

There are more than 20,000 Airbnb listings available in affected areas.

In light of hurricane Sandy, Airbnb is waiving all fees for spaces in affected areas. And encourage the entire community to help anyone who has been left stranded or in need because of the hurricane.

The fee-free traveling and hosting applies to both guests who book and hosts who accept new bookings that start between October 31 and November 7 in New York, the Hamptons, Providence, New Haven, and Atlantic City. (The max trip length is seven nights.)

Airbnb is asking that if you’re an existing host in an affected area and can help to consider lowering your price via your account settings.

If you are in a position to share space, please consider listing your space so others might find you.
