Hidden Artisanal Cocktails at Lovers of Today
It’s a good thing this speakeasy-style bar - located in a hard-to-find basement just under Niagara in the East Village - is under the radar: its appeal comes from both its laid-back attitude and pint-sized charm (if you have trouble finding it look for the tykes painted on the wall outside the entrance). Escape the street-level madness and descend into a cocktail lover’s dream, where you can order unexpectedly excellent drinks (all made with housemade liqueurs) that have kitschy names like Waterloo Sunset and Satellite of Love. The über-cool kids may be going farther down the staircase to Cabin Down Below, but this subterranean space is this buildng’s true destinatoin.
