Named after a Rolling Stones tune, this brown-spirits temple offers an all-American roster of more than 100 bourbons and ryes, from Kentucky barmen Garry Embry and Jared Schubert. Slugs are available straight, in cocktails like the Kennessee Old Fashioned (bourbon, house-made sassafras syrup, Angostura bitters), or in themed flights, like a local lineup including Van Brunt Stillhouse and Pine Barrens Single Malt. Along with the dark stuff, 12 brass taps offer craft beers (Firestone DBA, Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro) at the 34-seat wood-and-iron bar. For a nosh, find maple-thyme pecans and bacon-fat-roasted peanuts from Greenpoint bakery Ovenly.
