Invite: MADCrush Wine Bar Returns!

Posted by CrushWine

Special Encore Presentation
6:00 - 10:30 pm

@ the Museum of Arts and Design
Crush pairs wines to dishes from NYCs top chefs!

Next Thursday evening, we're excited to revive our MADCrush "pop-up" wine bar for a special encore presentation. The full details (along with some surprises) to come, but we have confirmed that Daniel Boulud's rising star chef, Damian Sansonetti, Executive Chef of Bar Boulud, will be in house!

Please join us as we continue to showcase our award-winning selections, as well as some of our favorite 'off the beaten path' favorites by the taste, glass, and bottle in recyclable govino glasses.

Our selections are chosen specifically to accompany menus of small plates from a roster of New York’s best chefs. Past chefs have included Mark Ladner of Del Posto, Scott Conant of Scarpetta, George Mendes of Aldea, and Cesare Casella of Salumeria Rossi.

This isn’t a retail store  – it's a Crush “Pop-Up” Wine Bar, unlike any other in NYC.

Award-winning Architect/Designer Stephanie Goto (Morimoto, Buddakan, Monkey Bar, Corton, etc) and her friend Takeshi Miyakawa collaborated on the design of this very special space.  The bars and tables are crafted from repurposed wine boxes, the seating landscape is made from corrugated cardboard wine dividers and a textured wall made of wine box inserts doubles as a changeable menu peg board. The design embraces the temporary spirit of the event as all of the components literally “pop up.” 

With sweeping views of Columbus Circle and Central Park, the space provides an incredible experience of New York. (The Museum also features “pay as you wish” admission on Thursdays, beginning at 6pm, so enjoy free run of the entire museum, which houses a stunning collection of objects that bridge – and blur – the space between object, art and craft.)

Entrance to the Crush “Pop-Up” Wine Bar is free, the design and experience is one-of-a-kind, the location is in the beating heart of this great city, the wine is world class and the prices are real.

With this special encore presentation next Thursday, September 17th, the bar will be folded up. Find all the details below and don’t hesitate to email us at if you have any questions or concerns.

See you Thursday.

Stephanie Goto is a renowned architect and designer whose spaces reflect a process that is collaborative and integrated. In 2006 she completed the Morimoto Restaurant in NYC with architect Tadao Ando and has since designed the environs for Buddakan, Drew Nieporent’s Corton (redefining the classic Montrachet space in Tribeca), Aldea and the Monkey Bar, to name but a few public projects. Current projects also include an artist in residence building, private residences, hotels, restaurants and student housing in New York, Connecticut, Los Angeles and Asia. She is also a great friend of the store and half the fun of this project (or considerably more?) has simply been the opportunity to work with her.

Govino. We found the perfect glass for the perfect space. Govino is “where wine meets design” – these are elegant, shatterproof, reusable and recyclable. Come check them out, either at the Crush “Pop-Up” Wine Bar or at the 57th street retail store. govino
