Black & White Bar Staff

Open since 1999, Black & White has been an East Village staple. Unlike other watering holes with a rotating door of bartenders, we pride ourselves on having a familiar face behind the bar, for you, our regular customer. Our bartenders are with us for the long haul, (some have been with us since the last millennium! Haha!) Anyway, the point is our staff is loyal, not only to us but to you, the customer as well. Now is the time we ask for you to be loyal to them. The COVID-19 crisis is impacting us all, as a society, but it is especially hurting those who work in the hospitality industry. Our staff have lost their jobs for reasons beyond anyone’s control and have no idea when they will be able to return to them. Food and living costs are looming over all of our heads, but especially for our staff, who cannot make money working from home. If you have the means and would like to help out our awesome and Loyal bartenders, please donate. 100% of Donations will be distributed to the staff. We hope to reopen as soon as we can. We can’t wait to have you back at the bar. Seeing a familiar face, smiling and ready to toast you! Thanks for everything, -Black & White
