As befits cocktail progenitor Sasha Petraske’s liquid legacy, the drinks at this clubby, low-ceilinged Village rathskeller are nigh perfect. If you choose to deviate from the menu, just give the neatly attired, polite bartenders a base liquor and a hint of your mood, and they can tailor a drink on the fly. A call for rye got us a spot-on Italian twist on a Manhattan, featuring maraschino liqueur, Carpano Antica vermouth and amaro. Custom-made cocktails—no password or secret handshake required.

If you catch this place at the right time it is amazing!If you don’t manage to get a table it can be a little tight be around the bar, that said the drinks are still amazing and it is a pretty cool setting.If you go there from Thursday to Saturday expect there to be a line, this place is at its best on quieter nights though in my opinion, where you can hide away in one of the booths enjoying their amazing cocktails for a few hours
