Yep, it’s yet another New York bar aping the speakeasy style isn’t this getting just little bit tired now? Fortunately not, or at least not when it’s this well executed. Located away from the noise and fizz of Rivington Street, this funky little Nolita booze den has a covert vibe, a slightly divey and scuffed-yet-stylish atmosphere that’s proved rather appealing to the city’s pretty young things. Though the 1920s theme is echoed in some nice design touches, like the upright piano near the front door, it’s mainly surface glitter and the music and general buzz are very 21st century. If you want to eat, there’s a decent selection of food on offer the venue is open from breakfast through dinner, and it’s a great place to pop into for a relaxed coffee through the day. Quality drinks remain the real draw here, however. Their signature cocktails are excellent, benefiting from the assured hand of former Milk & Honey staffers, and they know how to handle a classic. There’s also beer on tap and in bottles, though the prices have been known to draw a wince from the unsuspecting, so you might want to check what you’re paying before you order. There’s not a lot of space and at peak times it can get busy, though if you can’t get a seat you can always try popping next door to its sister venue, the equally funky beer and burger bar, Randolph Beer, which hosts live music (including a Bluegrass Brunch) in a laid-back, pub style setting.
