COLUMBIA STREET WATERFRONT DISTRICT — Chef Andy Ricker will soon bring a second eatery to the neighborhood with "Whiskey Soda Lounge Ny," a bar that serves "Aahaan Kap Klaem" - Thailand's drinking food, according to the website.

The lounge, located ay 115 Columbia St., is reportedly expected to be a version of Ricker's Whiskey Soda Lounge in Portland, which serves cocktail delicacies like Tamarind Whiskey Sour and a Yuzu-Honey Whiskey Hot Toddy.

Brooklyn's Whiskey Soda Lounge will reportedly be serving their famous Ike’s Vietnamese Fish Sauce Wings.

Ricker hopes the new lounge will be a space where diners can sit back and relax while waiting for a table at the chef's other Columbia Street restaurant, Pok Pok Ny, which will soon be moving to a larger location, just across the street from Whiskey Soda Lounge Ny, the New York Times reported.

According to a sign outside the restaurant, Whiskey Soda Lounge Ny will be opening this summer.

Ricker declined to comment on the restaurant's opening.
