Cocktail whiz Todd Thrasher, also behind the terrific drinks at nearby Restaurant Eve, lets his imagination run wild at this signless speakeasy (look for the pirate flag and the blue light). Reservations are recommended for the 30 seats in the deco-cool parlors, and there are a few rules to follow: no jeans, no standing, no swearing. But once you’re settled in, the payoff is great. Thrasher’s shakers are filled with freshly squeezed juices, house-made sodas, even specially shaped ice cubes, and his creations—a carrot-flavored colada, a sparkling mojito—go down deceptively easy.
