There’s something ironic about a posh stock market-themed bar opening in the midst of an economic crisis, complete with bottles of Dom and Cristal listed under Liquid Assets. The specialty cocktails and upscale bar food like truffle fries with lemon aioli are well executed if you have the cash to burn, and make sure your credit card is ready for one of the booths with tableside beer taps—you might get carried away if you’re the one doing the pouring.
