The Foundry at McCoy's

It looks like McCoy's is going to expand and add a sidecar (like on a motorcycle, not the drink) bar, Foundry at McCoy's.
“It’s an extension of McCoy’s, but they’re two different environments with separate kitchens, separate music, all under one roof,” Westphal says. “And with a separate deck.”

Another tres-trendy ultra-lounge?

“If you want a description, we’re a retro DJ dive bar,” Westphal says. “There’s vintage lighting, wood paneling — it looks more like someone’s basement than an ultra-lounge.”

Bottle service?

“No, no, no, no,” Westphal says. “We’re McCoy’s, and we’re going to run this business like we do McCoy’s, with great food and over 100 different beers.”

Another place in Westport with over 100 beers, I am going to have to get a job back down in that area.

Thanks for the tip, The D.


  1. Will this be in the former "cigar room" at McCoy's now that we can't do that, or will it be in the new space between McCoy's and the Riot Room (Hurricane)? I got ahold of a rumor that the new space was supposed to be Belgian, so it would be great if this were in the cigar room and we would get both.

    Is there anyone heading down that way that can do some snooping around?

  2. “I guess you could call it a communal hand-washing area,” Westphal says. “So all the women will know which guys wash their hands and which don’t.”

    That is hilarious. Hilarious and awesome.

  3. What has me most excited is the last bit about the Jucy Lucy.

    See these links for my encounter with the Jucy Lucy:
