THE STATS ON CARLOS ABEYTA
Name: Carlos Gabriel Savio Abeyta
Where: Beauty and Essex (146 Essex Street)
Sexual Preference: Ladies
Relationship Status: As Mr. Zuckerberg would say…”it’s complicated”
Though this New Mexico native is admittedly “not too difficult to please” when it comes to alcohol, he’s a bit more discerning about his love life. She has to be confident, spontaneous, passionate, and willing to indulge (or at least entertain) his fantasy of hooking up in an elevator on the way up to The Refinery Rooftop. That said, his taste in women and booze are equally diverse – his celebrity crushes range from Scarlett Johansson to Kiera Knightley and his preferred tipples include “Ilegal Mezcal neat, Spring 44 Gin on ice, Mount Gay Black Barrel neat.”
Want to get his attention while he’s behind the bar? Know your order and flash him a smile (though, any sort of flashing would likely get his attention.). “I love someone who has a good time. A laugh is probably the first thing that will catch my eye.” The lucky lady who does catch his eye wins an evening at The Gilroy, brunch at Boulton & Watt, and a romantic sunset stroll along the Brooklyn Bridge. Play your cards right and you can probably cash in on all three…in that order…within 24 hours.
When Carlos isn’t working, you’ll most likely find him rock climbing anywhere there are rocks to climb (usually Brooklyn Boulders or the Gunks), riding his motorcycle around town, or cozying up to the Ducks Eatery bar with a bowl of their Yakamein Soup. Wherever you find him, don’t expect him to stay there long; this nomadic adventure junkie is always up to something, off to somewhere, and possibly nursing a broken bone from his last excursion.
Carlos can sing and play guitar…at the same time. If you’ve ever dreamed of being serenaded on an East Village rooftop while sipping decent scotch, Carlos is your man.
