Cocktails in the Basement
Looking for a late-night speakeasy? This one's a charmer. The Bar Americain's fairly hidden from the street, but when you get down there, it's like going back in time. You find a 1930s, art deco wonder, with white-jacketed cocktail waiters and an air of, well, illicit fun. The cocktails are classic—aviations, gimlets—and the bar menu is absolutely delicious, especially the fat chips (otherwise known as fries) which come with aioli.
