Cocktail spot behind Cole's, from NYC cocktail royalty

In the back of Cole's (behind an oak door marked only with a framed drawing of a cocktail), this tiny bar from the vaunted mixologist minds behind Manhattan's Milk & Honey and Little Branch is delivering cocktails handcrafted with the same attention to detail as its NY counterparts (chipped block ice, homemade ingredients, fresh-squeezed juice, etc). Decor's turn-of-the-century, with cushioned, slatted-wood booths and a penny-tile floor; drinks're similarly old-school, with classics like the Bees Knees, the Gin & It, and the Hemingway Daiquiri -- drink a couple and tell the tale of The Old Man and the Pee.
