Late-Night Cocktailing on the Bowery

and a less stringent door policy, opening tomorrow on the
It’s best to consider this in terms of haves and have-nots. Haves: a sprawling lounge of wood/velvet where
booths are sufficiently nooked, sofas are wrapped around tree stumps, and the Moules Frites
actually leave you inebriated. Have-nots: a reservation policy or a conversation-killing DJ.
You’ll want to incorporate this spot as a before, after or in-between option for when you find yourself
turned around in the Bowery. A place where you’ll order up the namesake cocktail (scotch, sweet vermouth
and Parfait d’Amour), pair it with some Mini Short Rib Sandwiches
and make yourself at home on a
broken-in vintage couch for a few hours.

banquettes, settees and even boozy pots of mussels will all be moved outside into the garden.
No, not that Garden.
