EAST WILLIAMSBURG — Pucker up, Bushwick.

Amancay's Diner, a 24-hour spot at 2 Knickerbocker Ave. featuring a dedicated spin-the-bottle table, is set to open Monday night.

Owner Chang Han decided to create the table, which has a bottle secured to the top like a Lazy Susan, to give patrons a fun thing to do late at night.

The table is surrounded on three sides by a red booth that seats eight people, with the Amancay's-branded bottle in the middle. During the day, parties of five or more will be seated at the table, but at night, anything goes.

"I'm envisioning that people will take shots there at night and make out," Han said.

While the restauratuer is known for his big personality and partying, the diner will be about more than booze and locking lips, Han said.

The downstairs area, called Max Cellar at Amancay's Diner, will host a variety of events throughout the week, including square dancing, African drumming classes, funky jazz nights and an open mic night.

"People think 'Chang's going to do stupid things'," Han said. "It will be less hardcore partying than other places. We'll have diverse things."

The diner will only be open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. until this Thursday, and then from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Friday. It will being staying open around the clock on Monday, March 16.

The dinner menu includes a burger with fried shallots, pickles, tomatoes and slaw; a grilled ribeye steak with peppercorn sauce and a shrimp scampi dish with gluten-free angel hair pasta. Entree prices range from $12 to $26.

The brunch menu includes vanilla-infused French toast with blueberry compote, chicken and potato hash, and steel cut oatmeal with raisins, caramelized bananas and brown sugar. Brunch dishes range from $8 to $16.

The late-night menu features chicken wings, empanadas and a sloppy Joe with barbecue shredded beef and slaw on a ciabatta bun. Prices range from $8 to $14.

Once the weather warms up, Amancay's will also offer outdoor seating.
