Austrian toques Eduard Frauneder and Wolfgang Ban—the Michelin-starred duo behind Seasonal Restaurant & Weinbar and Edi & the Wolf—turn their attention to cocktails at this early-20th-century-Vienna–themed bar. Done up with distressed mirrors and emerald green banquettes, the watering den honors modern mixology trends, with ten tipples featuring liquid nitrogen, homemade cordials and pickled juices, while the venue’s name recalls the 1949 film noir set in Vienna. The bright, fizzy Franz Ferdinand combines the aperitif Aperol with a blend of juices (blood orange, beet and lemon), plus a dash of sparkling wine. To eat, there's charcuterie and small plates, including house-cured speck and chicken-liver terrine.

This bar comes to us from the same owners of Austrian restaurant, Edi & The Wolf. With a serious focus on cocktails, this bar has a really sophisticated aesthetic and warm atmosphere with its exposed brick walls, and unique and interesting (and, sorry, but slightly questionably shaped) blown glass lighting fixtures.
