A red light glowing inside the Stone Street Coffee Company (and the seemingly out-of-place gaggle waiting to get in) may provide a clue that there’s more than just coffee inside this tiny storefront. Behind an innocuous door, Bathtub Gin's name may conjure Prohibition-era moonshine (naturally they have a namesake copper bathtub prominently displayed in the center of the bar), but the owners wisely decided to focus their cocktail list on recipes predating the bathtub brewing decade. Try the Ivory Key (gin, dry curaçao, juniper syrup, orgeat, ginger, cream, lavender bitters and mint) at $16. Bar food is a modern fusion affair with menu items including truffle mushroom ricotta cavatelli, grilled shrimp and chorizo with scallions and garlic aioli, and flatbread with fresh mozzarella and eggplant caponata. Weeknights offer an opportunity to sink back in one of the speakeasy’s plush, damask banquettes over a cocktail or two while weekends are more raucous, drawing twenty and thirtysomething crowds away from the nearby MePa scene with D.J.s spinning dance tracks. That said, late night bathtub lolling is encouraged—seven days a week.
