With its rope-strung ceiling, lantern lighting, and single-slab walnut bar, Churchill is the kind of casually sexy place that's prime for dates. Though the cocktail menu changes seasonally, it typically includes understated classics like the Monte Carlo (Eagle Rare single barrel 10-year, Benedictine, bitters and a lemon peel). The bar stocks spirits from a variety of whiskey distilleries—Michter's, Willett, Overholt & Co. and more—as well as more than a dozen Scotch distilleries.
