Life Happens On Pause

The hospitality industry is essential to New York City's social and economic success. It's a booming industry that lures in clients from around the world. That was until a Covid-19 induced lockdown put the city that never sleeps into an extended hibernation.

Hundreds of thousands of workers would lose their livelihoods and thousands of business owners would need to navigate this new landscape. Life Happens on Pause tracks the stories of four bars during the pandemic; Pineapple Club, Bar Belly, Black Emperor and Amor Y Amargo. We give you unprecedented access to the inner workings of how four different bars handled the crisis and fought to avoid becoming a statistic.
