Welcome - your journey is about to begin…

Patent Pending is located in the cellar of the Radio Wave Building, a New York City landmark building where Nikola Tesla lived and performed his experiments in the late 19th century. Patent Pending provides an intimate experience that embodies aspects of both a discreet speakeasy and upscale cocktail club. Once here, your party will be transported into the back bar, with a lovely, low-ceiling, mirrored foyer for eight (3 stools), five banquettes to seat up to twenty-two, and nine bar stools. Food will be served in the Cafe up front, and the entire space both front and back is yours.

Our cocktails have been expertly curated by industry veterans of Dead Rabbit and BlackTail, and we’ve worked meticulously in our selection of spirits, design aesthetics and unwavering attention to service and hospitality. At Patent Pending, our team is dedicated to achieving unparalleled guest satisfaction. Our highly-trained bar and front-of-house staff takes the greatest pleasure in attending to every detail for private events and affairs. We look forward to hosting you soon.
