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 Apres Ski (Bailey's, cinnamon whiskey, marshmallow) and the Copper Donkey (vodka, ginger beer, lemon and lime juices). Chef Justin Farmer (of the Brooklyneer and Manhattan Inn) turns out updated bar snacks, such as double-fried french fries, pork-belly-topped deviled eggs, and grilled shishito peppers.
