Double Chicken Please opens its back bar with an expanded menu

After nearly a year of serving fried chicken sandwiches and cocktails on tap, Double Chicken Please open its back bar this week with an expanded menu of food and drink. With the expansion, owners GN Chan and Faye Chen are moving closer to their original plans for the cocktail bar, which included a bar up front and back with distinct menus and vibes.

Double Chicken Please will continue to serve sandwiches and “taptails” up front in a casual setting, according to the Instagram post, while its back bar will be more “intimate, whimsical and experimental.” ⁠⁠⁠⁠Chan originally designed the back space as a way to serve an elaborate multi-course menu of food and drink pairings, where “the food will be the drink and the drink will be the food”, a- he told Eater at opening time. In the meantime, customers can order chicken liver mousse and other dishes as well as a new list of food-inspired cocktails such as Japanese cold noodles and mango rice.

The Lower East Side cocktail bar started out as a traveling pop-up from a yellow Volkswagen minibus. Chan and Chen found a permanent home for the bar at 115 Allen Street near Delancey Street in November and served an abbreviated menu of draft cocktails and tofu and fried chicken sandwiches.
