Downtown booze connoisseurs frequent this so-called library, the only one we can think of where liquor lines the walls. A novella-size drinks menu lists a glossary of spirits and 100 cocktail options, among them the Corpse Reviver (gin, lemon juice, Lillet Blonde, Cointreau and Pernod) and the Jarnac Ginger (cognac, bitters and ginger beer). Paying $13 for one of these earns drinkers a basket of gratis gougères (warm cheese puffs).
Whatever your poison, Tribeca offers several worthwhile drinking options. Among the best bars in the neighborhood are several spots for standout cocktails. Oenophiles will find cheer in the larger sibling of East Village wine bar, Terroir, which also serves gourmet snacks. For something more substantial, consult our selection of restaurants.
