Legend holds that Hell’s Kitchen got its fiery name during Prohibition, when veteran policeman “Dutch Fred” witnessed a neighborhood riot with his rookie partner and proclaimed, “Hell’s a mild climate. This is hell’s kitchen.” Owners Michael and Pat McNamee—also behind sports bars the Three Monkeys, the Mean Fiddler and the similarly history-inspired Tanner Smith’s—taps into the era and legacy of its namesake with this 1920s-style Hell’s Kitchen cocktail bar, decorated with mosaic tile floors, framed portraits of Fred himself and flat screens showing black-and-white films. Employees Only alum Tony Erzene oversees period-piece drinks like the Curtain Call (rye, amaro, lemon and egg whites) and the Dutch Courage (jenever, celery bitters, lemon, simple syrup, mint and orchid flowers), as well as a beer list featuring 24 craft bottles including Speakeasy Metropolis Lager and 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA.
