We read back in December that Andy Ricker, of Pok Pok, was planning on opening up a bar down the street from his Brooklyn restaurant and now we have tangible evidence. The sign is up for Whiskey Soda Lounge on Columbia and Kane! Talk about cornering the market. The droves that wait nightly for entry to Pok Pok can now go drink and snack at this bar while they wait. Here's what they say about the Portland sister bar. "Whiskey Soda Lounge is a bar/lounge serving Aahaan Kap Klaem, the drinking food of Thailand." Bring it!
