Forget what you thought you knew about the barhopping experience when you enter through the doors of this blink-and-you-miss-it spot, where just eight coveted seats are available to patrons. That’s because no two bottles are alike in these parts—which makes sourcing, training, and execution particularly rewarding for spirit savant Paul McGee and his team. Craving Campari? They likely have one from the '70s. Fancy some Fernet? Try the 1957 vintage. Cocktails are no less specific: The A la Louisiane features an eight-year-old Redemption Rye, 1950s Benedictine, and Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe, while the Baby Darling boasts Neisson 15 Year Rhum Agricole and 1980s-era Isolabella Amaro 18.
