Murray Hill: NYC has a new bar styled for the 1970s in the Factory 380, which is inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop art era in its decor, including a collection of photos from Studio 54 and a Warhol quote graffitied on a wall in hot pink. Executive chef Javier Alvarez has fine dining experience at Vermilion. Here, he’ll serve tapas inspired by different parts of NYC, including pork dumplings and, for dessert, Coney Island nuts. There’s also a take on a “TV dinner” involving a roasted Cornish hen. There’s also a hidden speakeasy lounge in the space, named after Edie Sedgwick. 380 Third Ave., between 27th and 28th streets

Park Slope: A cocktail bar called Lizzy King’s Parlor opened with a focus on local products, carrying New York craft beers, wines from the North Fork and the Finger Lakes, coffee from Abbotsford, pastries and bread from Bien Cuit, and meats from Fleisher’s Craft Butchers.
