Patent pending & patent coffee

Simmer is proud to launch its first two concepts, Patent Pending and Patent Coffee. From design and branding to interiors and marketing strategy, Simmer is excited to bring the newest dual-concept to NoMad. 


simmer group is pleased to announce the official opening of our first brick & mortaR in New York City's NoMad District.

Inside the cellar of the historic Radio Wave Building, located at 49 West 27th Street, Patent offers two distinct day to night personalities – Patent Coffee and Patent PendingSIMMER created the concept of Patent from the ground floor up with initial identity exploration through launch. This included: branding, interior design, graphics & illustration, print & packaging design, menu identity, website design, production (video & photography), operations, product fulfillment/sourcing, legal/compliance, copywriting/storytelling and marketing strategy. We also collaborated with NY-based firms Carpenter + Mason and Cocozza Group on the architecture and construction management elements of the project. 

We're very proud of what we created and hope you can visit us for a cup of our delicious coffee or one of our expertly crafted cocktails soon. 



Patent Pending provides an intimate cocktail experience that embodies aspects of both a discreet speakeasy and neighborhood saloon. Patent's cocktail menu has been expertly crafted to provide customers with a uniquely defined spirit journey in addition to a versatile beer and wine program.

Once here, you'll be transported into a darkened, intimate escape reminiscent of a bygone era. Original brick archways surround the bronze bar top making it a perfect seat to watch our bar team at work. Additionally, Patent's corridor is accompanied with several banquettes, providing guests with space for a cocktails and conversation.

...the menu is the work of multiple artists and writers, and is an experience in itself.

...Through a heavy set of now-unlocked doors, you’ll emerge all at once into a dark, sexy cave-like space. You’ll make your way through the alcove full of low-hanging lanterns and into a nicer version of the bar you’d hoped to find here: it really is that good-looking.

The bar is lined with exposed brick walls and hanging light bulbs to create a sexy, chic vibe that makes any visitor feel “in the know.”

Patent Coffee provides its neighbors with a new option for their daily caffeinated fix. Clean and bright, the space welcomes guests with unique signage and it's centered with a one-of-a-kind marble slab on the freshly cut countertops. Patent Coffee echoes with lively music and serves locals and businesses alike with its fine selection of grab-and-go style coffees, teas and cold brew. 

Staying true to Patent's New York roots, coffee beans are delivered weekly from a Brooklyn purveyor with an emphasis on sustainable sourcing and world varietals. For treats, Patent serves pastries from Pain D’Avignon, chia parfaits and cookies (baked fresh every hour, with two recipes from Bon Appetit’s Claire Saffitz). We look forward to having you join us for a cup!
