New 1 Republik Lounge Stands On Its Own

From the Corrections Department, a previous post identified the recently opened 1 Republik Lounge in Murray Hill/Kips Bay, as part of the ever growing Tonic Empire. The bar's owner, Kathleen Petrones, reached out to Eater to say "my bar isn't related to 1 Republik in Hoboken, Tonic, Joshua Tree, and Mercury bar or any other bar for that matter" and she isn't trying to copy any of them either. Petrones, a transplant from the Midwest, says her goal is to create a "laid-back lounge with an east village dive bar feel", and she wants "to differentiate my bar as an escape from the stereotypical 3rd Ave sports bars." Hence the signage to the right? The bar opened for business on February 11.
