Excitement builds over opening of new martini bar in Doylestown


It’s been several years since a bar and restaurant drew visitors down Printers Alley to wine and dine in the heart of Doylestown Borough. That’s all about to change.

Excitement is growing over the impending opening of Frost, a self-described “New York-style bar and exclusive lounge.”

Located in the former Blue 52 bar, The Lounge at Frost, according to its website, wants to “build a lifelong community where people can share experiences, build relationships, and get inspired by peers and leaders across multiple industries.”

The upscale business is a members-only affair on the upper level and a public bar on the first level. There’ll be live music on each of the floors.

To enter the private lounge, members, who will pay an annual $1,000 fee, will need a Prohibition-style passcode. An access key provides entrance to a red English-style phone booth that delivers them to the second-floor lounge with a “historic library setting.” Members can bring a companion, and up to two additional guests.

Food at Frost will feature modern fusion “with international influences,” offered as small plates and tapas. “All dishes are homemade from fresh local ingredients,” said management.

Will Rodriguez is Frost’s general manager and sommelier, and Juan Mercado will serve as executive chef.

The business is expected to open in the next few weeks.

Social media comments on Frost have been positive.

“Can’t wait,” wrote one.

“Stunning,” said another.

“Thank you,” said some online.
