Once a rest stop for wayward audience members wandering Punchdrunk's game-changing Sleep No More production, the McKittrick Hotel opens this theatrical cocktail parlor to the public for postshow tippling. The velvet-curtained bar—littered with comedy-tragedy masks and playing cards—is menuless, pouring out made-to-order cocktails while a rotating cast of live entertainers perform for the crowd. Some nights, Pete Maness may be plucking a jazzy riff on his stand-up bass, while others may find soul sister Sophia Urista crooning onstage while you enjoy an absinthe-spiked sip.
