This high-end speakeasy (make sure you don't walk past it -- look for a bouncer down a set of narrow stairs) is a dark and moody space with throwback music, exposed brick, and a backlit bar. It comes from the owners of Death & Co., so you know you're getting expertly crafted cocktails with premium ingredients. That said, the extensive drink menu changes with the seasons, but you can expect inventive concoctions like the Play It Cool (which you should do here), mixed with vermouth, jalapeño-infused tequila, cane juice rum, avocado, green bell pepper, and lime juice.
