Amaru Pisco Bar

About

From the owners of Pio Pio. The team behind the Peruvian rotisserie chicken chain opened Amaru, a pisco-focused bar, housed in a former Pio Pio space in Jackson Heights. With up to sixteen different kinds of the fermented grape spirits, categorized by single varietals and blended versions, are on offer. Sip your choice at the L-shaped white marble bar or opt for one of the tropical-style cocktails—such as the Alturas (Pisco, prickly pear puree, lemon, aloe vera) or the Chilcano de Durazno (peach-infused pisco, ginger liqueur, club soda) You can pair your cocktails with one of our Peruvian-style tapas, including ceviches, empanadas and tamales. Soccer fans can also catch games projected on the wall in the industrial space, which features 30-foot ceilings, brick walls and exposed steel beams. Amaru also offers a full bar with wine, sangria and beer to keep non-pisco worshippers happy as well.
