Bicoastal booze stars David Kaplan and Alex Day—who operate NYC standard-bearer Death & Company and disco-cool Honeycut in downtown Los Angeles—roll out this subterranean cocktail clubhouse, kitted out with Art Deco lamps, brick walls and plum leather banquettes. From a short maple bar, head bartender Natasha David (Maison Premiere) turns out elegant drinks, like a Hakushu highball and the aquavit-and-gin Matagot. An upstairs restaurant, the Jewish-inflected Schapiro’s, provides the bar bites. 120 Rivington St between Essex and Suffolk Sts (212-466-3361)
