Although the name may be standard, the place is anything but. It’s small, sleek, sophisticated and nearly hidden: Spot the Western Union sign, then look to your right. Behind frosted windows, a laid-back crowd grooves to lush deejayed tunes. Smartly prepared libations include a cool melon kamikaze and the house-invented Apple Ginger Fizz. Settle in and…be cool.
