A little bit
With the vision of creating a warm, authentic space where long-lasting and genuine connections organically occur, Corner Social was launched in March 2012. Our wood-lined, indoor space accommodates about 100 guests across our bar, communal and dinning tables. In the summer months, our 50-person outdoor patio offers views of midtown Manhattan’s landmarks making for a perfect NYC evening.
The same principles on which we built our space, have led us to creating our kitchen’s diverse and delicious offerings. We offer contemporary, American cuisine and we are consistently finding ways to update and improve our menu. 7 days a week for lunch, brunch, dinner and late night dinning, guests will find a variety of choices to fit any taste preferences and dietary needs.
Our full bar mixes the best of tradition with the trendiest brands on the market and is complemented by our extensive list of international and craft beers. Join us any night of the week for a drink, dance and to enjoy the most talented DJ’s in the industry!
With a focus on community, connection and family, our mission is to continue working hard to honor and make a difference in the Harlem community. Whether it’s date night, girls night out or a quick solo-stop after work, our magical corner is perfect to connect, let loose and inspire.
We look forward to having you!
Born and raised in Argentina, Anahi Angelone moved by herself to NYC when she was 19. With very little exposure to American culture and lacking English skills, Anahi found herself, like many other immigrants, working hard in a restaurant to pay for her college tuition. Moving from a waitress to a bartender to a manager, Anahi worked her way up the restaurant ladder while also working to graduate with a BA in International Business Administration. With her knowledge of the hospitality industry from the ground up, combined with her business acumen, Anahi has successfully created some of the most popular restaurants and bars in Harlem, earning her share of The American Dream – something she continues to pursue each day not just for herself, but for team members, patrons and the broader Harlem community at large.
Forever mindful of the people and opportunities that helped her get to where she is, Anahi is deeply committed to the belief that business and community are one. One without the other is meaningless but working together each makes the other stronger. She sees her neighborhood establishments as not merely economic engines, but social platforms where human exchanges, connections and ideas are shared. In her own words, “It was only when I came to Harlem that I felt I had found my ‘Home away from Home’ and it’s my commitment to intentionally and purposefully lead my team with integrity.” Anahi has made her personal mission to continue to offer a unique platform to support and collaborate with community advocates, local artists, movers & shakers, non-profit organizations, philanthropist and anyone and everyone making a difference in our community.
