Head downstairs to gain access to this 3,000-square-foot rathskeller, safely insulated from MePa mayhem. Sip signature libations like the Picasso Honey (honey liquor, gin and Cointreau, with a honey-stick garnish) and devour bar snacks such as the beer-battered shrimp. We prefer the cavernous, mahogany-and-brick room on chill weeknights; weekends find this hive positively buzzing. You’ve been warned.
