I thought twice about posting this highlight, as the selfish part of me doesn't want more people to know about this neighborhood favorite, but it's just too good not to share.
Hidden behind the Stone Street Coffee Shop lies one of the best places in Chelsea to sit (or stand) and enjoy great cocktails and small plates. More than just a "buzzy" speakeasy, this place offers devilishly good new twists on old favorites, and concoctions I had never encountered. My favorites are their aged coctails (60 days in oak barrels): The Matador (Don Julio, vermouth, grand marnier, orange bitters, orange oils, stirred and served up), and The Plum Bullet (bullet rye whiskey, averell damson plum gin liqueur, cocchi vermouth, peychaud’s bitters, lemon oils, stirred and served up). But the night is not over until you order the table-top s'mores kit for dessert!
