Hoping to invigorate the speakeasy trend by marrying actually good food with actually good drinks with actually good music (!), this dusky imbibery-inside-a-coffee-shop is denoted only by a red light on its nondescript door, which opens to reveal period touches like a tiled tin ceiling, an antique bathtub centerpiece, and possibly '20s-'30s jazz acts. It's all the product of a mixology heavyweight from Ireland and a chef from Harry's Steak, who're pairing plates of lobster-stuffed 'shrooms and short rib sliders with libations running from Pimm's Cups and Dry Martinis, to a light-n-dark rum joint w/ falernum, pineapple juice, and black cardamom called the Melancholy Punch, which certainly won't leave you dispirited.
