Apothéke Photo
An apothecary-themed cocktail bar, opened inside a former opium den. The lounge was modeled after old European apothecaries, which did indeed sometimes have bars — owner Christopher Tierney designed the banquettes and added a large red couch and a small ottoman scored from Daniel Boulud when Daniel closed for its makeover. The light sconces are filled with an absinthe-like herbal liquid that emits a soothing scent. The ceiling was uncovered when the one belonging to the previous tenant, Golden Flower, was pulled down, and was then painted with gold leaf. The bar was custom-built using imported marble and some pressed tin purchased from an antique store that also sold Tierney a 200-year-old door equipped with a cool sliding peephole. Stunning? A little bit, yes. And she’ll look even better after a The Dragonfly, made with mezcal, sunflower blossom sencha tea, epazote, nectarine, wheat grass, lime and habanero bitters.
