The newest addition to Jackie Greenbaum’s growing empire is this hip lounge—vintage furniture, chandeliers—which shares a former auto-parts warehouse with the restaurateur’s flagship, Jackie’s. Bartenders in suit vests draw on a list of nearly 30 cocktails, covering the classic-to-creative spectrum. There’s a sidecar and a Jack Rose but also drinks called Bombayboozled and Everything’s Better With Bacon. Bar food here means house-made potato chips with toasted-nori salt and a great replica of a Chicago-style hot dog, a nod to the chef’s hometown.
