Head down the back stairs of Michael Chernow and Daniel Holzman's popular Chelsea Meatball Shop and you’ll find this 25-seat bar. Classic drinks—like a Moscow mule and hot buttered rum—are made with American spirits (Brooklyn Republic, Greenhook Ginsmiths). The restaurant's mix-and-match menu is mirrored by a Whiskey Grid, which offers classics like an old-fashioned, a Manhattan, a Sazerac or a sour with the liquor of your choice.
