Not surprisingly, rye dominates the cocktail list created by Luis Mendez (Mercer Kitchen) at this lobby lounge in the Lipstick Building, where barkeeps fashion their own ginger beer and bitters for quaffs like the Old-Old Fashioned, infused with hickory smoke.

This cool spot is much welcome in an otherwise desolate area of nightlife. They'll fashion you any drink you like in addition to quite an extensive And creative cocktail menu. And snacks are delicious too. We recommend the flatbreads or tuna tartare...but come early because they do get crowded...and run out of certain items.
