Why it's hot: This whimsical new cocktail den on Irving Place comes from the team who created Chelsea speakeasy Raines Law Room, and is inspired by old-world cocktail parlors and time travel. The glitzy interior was inspired by different time periods, including '60s mod and the Roaring Twenties.
Must-drink: Whiskey Business: rye, ancho chile liqueur, cinnamon, lemon, angostura bitters ($15).
Insider tip: Reservations are encouraged and can be made here.
