Turn the Radio Up

Re: The Importance of Drinking

UD - The Radio Room You've heard rumblings. They involve the words epicenter and cocktail revolution.

These are the kinds of rumblings you tend not to ignore.

So this is where you'll want to be tomorrow night—The Radio Room is returning to the Edison, gloriously rebooted for 2010.

A home for like-minded souls who rank quality gin right up there with oxygen, the Radio Room pops up every few weeks with three guest bartenders who happen to be some of the best in the country. In the depths of Downtown's most elegant former power plant, you'll find them presiding over the bar in the back, mixing enticing specialties for one night only—supported, as all good drinking sessions should be, by oysters and live jazz.

After a few months of radio silence, this week marks the bigger-and-better return: the Edison has brought in an esteemed new overlord of drinks by the name of Joseph Brooke (Bar Marmont, Copa d'Oro), and tomorrow's your first shot to see what he's got in mind. With him: Brian Miller of NYC's Death & Co. and Erick Castro of SF's Rickhouse Bar.

Those are the résumés. The drinks are the references.
