There’s a feel of the speakeasy around the two bars that comprise this labyrinthine basement club underneath the Clarence Hotel. The artfully draped doorways and subtle mood lighting make it easy to get lost and end up in the other bar. The cocktails are outstanding—watching the nimble bartenders at work serves as a reminder that mixology is as much an art as anything. Check out the lively dance floor, or grab a table in one of the many side rooms and watch the time melt away like the ice in an appletini. Reservations are a good idea on weekends.
