New York Nico & Hudson Whiskey Team to Support Local Businesses

Last night (October 1), influencer Nicolas Heller (@NewYorkNico) teamed up with Hudson Whiskey to support local New York City businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic at an event at 7B Horseshoe Bar in Alphabet City.

Employees of neighborhood bars and restaurants across the city came to be honored, as Heller served up free Hudson Whiskey cocktails and local pizza slices. Heller has devoted his Instagram account to amplifying the work of essential workers and New Yorkers who have contributed to public safety during the pandemic. In that spirit, all city health and safety guidelines were strictly followed at the celebratory event.

Dates, times and locations for Heller's upcoming events will be shared 30 minutes prior to each through the @NewYorkNico Instagram page. These events will support Hudson Whiskey’s Lifting Spirits campaign, which aims to uplift and give back to New Yorkers during the pandemic. While the events are open to the public, guests will be accepted on a limited basis depending on each venue’s size in accordance with New York City health and safety guidelines.
