Creatures of the night come to roost at this subterranean East Village bar, where the lights are low, the patrons well-heeled and the drinks properly stiff. Stake out one of the stylish pressed-tin tables, nibble on house-marinated olives and sip a proprietary Blue Owl—a sultry mix of Miller’s gin, maraschino liqueur and fresh lemon juice.
