Sip fruity tipples at this Lower East Side drinkery filled with musical decor. The 64-seat lounge—brimming with throwback flourishes like Edison bulbs and zinc high-top tables—takes its name from a vintage recording technique that generated sound as a stylus cut up and down through a disc. Audio references are scattered throughout the space, including phonograph wallpaper and a cabinet filled with antique radios. Post up at the 15-seat mahogany bar, where a barkeep shakes up cocktails like the Dizzy Dishes (prosecco, rose-water liquor and pickled strawberries) and Menlo Punch (gin, house-made Arnold Palmer, rosemary and thyme). Chef Justin Farmer (of the Brooklyneer and Manhattan Inn) turns out updated bar snacks, such as lobster cakes, pork-belly-topped deviled eggs, and roasted bone marrow with- mushrooms and gremolata.
