SoYo as seen on Bar Rescue
YONKERS, NY — In a few months, the most talked about bar in the country is sure to be SOYO in Downtown Yonkers. Hit TV show Bar Rescue recently completed their transformation of a local pub, formally known as Undisputed. The new upscale “craft-cocktail” bar is the first to be featured on the SpikeTV show, and fits beautifully into the renaissance that Downtown Yonkers has undergone over the past decade.
With the assistance of bar expert Jon Taffer, and the entire Bar Rescue team, SOYO was born. Host Jon Taffer, an award-winning restaurant operator with nearly 30 years of hands-on experience, uses brutal honesty to create a quick and fundamental transformation.
“I was excited to learn of Bar Rescue coming to Yonkers. They recognized the City as a great place to live, work and play and transformed a space downtown where residents can do exactly that,” said Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano.
After a week of planning and construction, the only thing that remains the same is the address at 38 Main Street. The outside is repainted and rebranded, and the inside has been completely remodeled into a brighter, trendier space. But the most important changes are to the environment, the food, and the drinks. The dress code mirrors the décor: upscale and trendy. The menu has been revamped to include unique twists on comfort foods and traditional snacks.
