Now Open: World's First Certified Organic Bar

Now Open: World's First Certified Organic Bar

This weekend, GustOrganics, an all-organic restaurant in Manhattan, became the world's first 100 percent USDA certified organic bar. The sleek, eco-conscious bar and restaurant is located in Greenwich Village. The bar is stocked with certified organic wine, beer, fresh fruit, and spirits such as rum, vodka, whiskey, and tequila. According to owner Alberto Gonzalez, all of the drinks are free of chemicals, artificial substances, hormones, and pesticides. GustOrganics serves standards cocktails like martinis and mojitos, and fruit concoctions such as Fresquitos, made with mangoes, orange juice, and vodka.

Other aspects of the bar are eco-friendly: there's a wind turbine on the roof that generates renewable energy and the menus are printed with soy ink on 100-percent recycled paper. I'd love to stop by this bar to try the fresh-made drinks and test out the theory that organic drinks prevent hangovers. What about you? Does the organic drink movement interest you, and do you think GustOrganics will (pardon the pun) set the bar for other nightspots?

So cool that there are enough organic alcohols to make a whole bar filled with them! What neat proof of how far the organic movement has come...

I kind of like this idea of a fully organic bar though I don't know if it makes that much of a difference. I like the design of the restaurant a lot - simple, earthy and classy. I guess that I'd go just to see what the fuss is all about even though the menu is a bit pricey.

Alcohol causes hangovers because no matter if it is organic or not, it is POISON.

Okay, so uh, I know I've gotten a hangover drinking organic wine. Now, granted, I may have put away most of a bottle, but still ;) Anyway, the design is neat. I like the earthy feel to the bar.
