Village Voice's Description

Ravi DeRossi (Bourgeois Pig) probably didn't realize the trends he was about to start when he opened this East Village cocktail den in 2007. The first would be the Prohibition Era bartenders, complete with old timey vests and mustaches. The sophisticated speakeasy atmosphere was another. Bar patrons must give their name to the host, who will seat them when (or if) seats become available, which keeps the bar from becoming an overcrowded mess. The most important trend was the slavish devotion to the cocktails, from the carefully measured, freshly made ingredients to the specially shaped ice cubes. Whatever your poison, the bar probably has a complicated drink for it, like the Queen Palm, which matches Plymouth Gin with fresh-squeezed lime and grapefruit juice, pure sugar cane syrup and fresh coconut water. There is also a small plates menu including bites like pulled pork sliders and crisp pork belly over goat cheese polenta. The windowless bar is often filled with couples, who sit back in the luxe leather banquettes illuminated by candles and chandeliers.—Keith Wagstaff

    One of my favorite destinations in NYC. The wait can be quite bad some nights, but I always have an excellent time. Recommend the Jekyll and Hyde (whiskey drink) and the lobster 'sliders'. Great staff as well!

    Tight, dark, and worth the shouting. The beverage menu is extensive and complicated, but they make stuff that is so good you won't know how you got that drunk.

    My absolute favorite bar. They mix the drinks in the old style using different size ice cubes and raw eggs. Bartenders are very experienced and awesome. -Susie Brunet, Launch My Line

    Try the Sweet Hereafter. Swapping in pisco for gin, barkeep Joachim Simo takes the straightlaced martini for a sultry Latin American spin. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

    One of the best cocktails I tried this year was at Death & Co. Gin, cinnamon, bark syrup, and chardonnay. It made a completely different taste and alchemy in my mouth. -Elizabeth Falkner, Top Chef M

    Go before 7:30pm on Sundays through Wednesdays. Sit at the bar. Don't trust the doorman's time estimates if he puts your name down--it's very hard to predict when people will leave.

  • Metromix on 07/12/10

    This 1920s-esque bar goes all out for the speakeasy feel with bow-tied bartenders, jazz tunes and kerosene lamps. While the drinks are mixed by experts, it gets pricey easily.
