There’s a sort of unintentional irony to a bar named for an era in which alcohol was outlawed, but that doesn’t stop folks from still boozing it up at this chic, martini-heavy hang. The crowd of Upper West Side locals also comes to the red-lit, rarely packed spot for tempting snacks, such as juicy mini cheeseburgers, and for live bands. The nightly playlist spans classic rock, hip-hop and R&B—no Victrola here.
