Popsicle star King of Pops has toiled to bring a bricks and mortar store to Spring Street since last summer. The shop, Crooked Crown, will serve as a popsicle shop by day and cocktail bar by night. Located in the Elan Midtown space between Meeting and King Streets, Crooked Crown looks close to opening — there's a bar and seating in the space, a hip logo, and an ad for front-of-house staff on Craigslist:
King of Pops is opening up a new cocktail concept on Spring Street and looking for dynamic and flexible team players! Bartenders that want to be part of creating a fun atmosphere and King of Pops style dranks should definitely apply. Looking to fill both part time and full time positions. Please respond to this ad with you resume and 3 favorite cocktails for consideration.
Sounds like poptails (popsicles + cocktails) will be in hand by the time the weather warms up.
