225 Avenue B, 917-656-6788, East Village, Manhattan
The hotshot cocktail team behind Alchemy Consulting—Toby Maloney, Jason Cott, Troy Sidle and Death & Company vet Joaquín Simó—open a grown-up watering hole determined to outgrow the speakeasy genre. Painted blue and green, the airy 88-seat East Village room is lit with white-frosted Art Deco glass shafts and a large arched window spanning the front of the bar. The cocktail menu, laid out as a chart with drinks mapped across categories like "Comforting" and "Refreshing," features originals such as the Tahona Smash, a light mixture of reposado tequila, dry sherry, caramelized pear and Angostura bitters.
