Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

You have to slip down a nondescript alleyway around the corner from Rittenhouse Square to access this sexy speakeasy-inspired cocktail den. Once inside, you’ll find a dimly lit, intimate room decked with plush booths, nude portraits on the walls and ample seating at the bar. The winter cocktail menu includes a lineup of creative artisanal drinks such as Love on the Rum, made with rye, rum, brown butter maple syrup, apple juice and egg yolk; Goonies Never Say Rye, made with rye, curacao, lemon and pistachio orgeat; and the Cheese Louise, a concoction of rye, apple brandy, quince and ricotta. If nothing on the list suits you, tell your bartender what you’re in the mood for and they’ll be happy to whip you up something special.
