When you want to keep the night going after Gilt Bar, head down to the basement library bar. Though still Sodikoff-trademark dim, the space has a warmer glow, and the cocktails (such as a thoroughly shaken whiskey sour and a beautiful negroni) are first-rate. Best part: Gilt Bar’s full menu (including ideal snacks like roasted garlic and balsamic with toast) is available to accompany them.
