After more than two years of planning, preparation and construction, Essex Bar & Bistro has opened at Trade and Tryon.

Situated at the base of the Omni Hotel, Essex should immediately become a nighttime hotspot and adds immensely to the presence on The Square.

Look at that patio. This is going to be really cool when the night is bustling.

I’m a big fan of the sun room. More restaurants should have sun rooms.

The cocktails are going to be a huge draw.

Most of the time, you’re not going to pay less than $12 for a craft cocktail. It’s a lot cheaper here.

I had the Essex Gimlet. I’ve been wanting to have one because I’m love Gimlet Media’s podcasts, even though I don’t drink a lot of gin.

Be sure to ask for their little leather-bound cocktail book.

There’s also going to be fancy coffee served from this machine.
