The Seville in NYC’s NoMAd neighborhood offers a beverage program with large-format cocktails and new food menu items to guests.

We were curious to find out more about these cocktails and food offerings, so we asked head mixologist Brad Carnation to tell us more. Here’s what he had to say:

“The Seville’s beverage program has been inspired by its environment. This is a unique nightlife space—DJs playing throwback ‘80s and ‘90s hip-hop, velvet couches meticulously located for dancing and mingling—all happening in an art-deco hotel on Madison Avenue. There are many elements to pull from!”

For our cocktails, we have received a lot of praise for our elevated classic cocktail recipes. We have drinks that are inspired by the design after the original hotel, The Seville, which opened in 1904. The Beaux-Arts Beauty is our signature cocktail, a refreshing and light blend of vodka, pamplemousse, lemongrass, yuzu, and Prosecco. Solo, this cocktail is served in a copper coupe glass; however, to encourage group interaction, we also offer this cocktail in a large format. There is something to be said when you see a glistening disco ball for eight friends come across the floor in the middle of a Notorious B.I.G. song.

Another cocktail available in large format is our Plank-Smoked Old Fashioned, which always has heads turning. This is a combination of Maker’s Mark and our house bitters, a complex recipe including cocoa, espresso beans, vanilla, and caster sugar. The aroma of smoked cedar rounds out this classic to make it one of our signatures.

For food, you’ll find an eclectic menu that complements these cocktails, like our popular Mini Short Rib Tortas. The Kaluga Caviar & Burrata seems to be a hit with the bottle service crowd. The after-work groups love to indulge in our selection of Spanish hams and cheeses.

“Whether you’re staying in The James Hotel or just a passerby, The Seville will make your night out with friends unforgettable!”
