Catch-22 came late to the retro-cocktail-lounge trend, but its strikingly beautiful interior will help you forget it’s all been done before. The place feels much more like a private study than a bar: It’s all recessed lighting, wood paneling, fresh flowers, bookshelves, and gleaming glass. It dates back to World War II there are infantry helmets tucked in among the bottles and PoMo takes on the great war (collages, GI’s with butterfly wings) hang on the walls. The Asian-tinted tapas menu changes seasonally and is impressively extensive; elderflower and sugar-plum-cured foie gras, fig pâté, edamame-seared red snapper with wasabi candy. A private-party space upstairs where the likes of D.J. AM and D.J. Ellie spin caters to the top-shelf, bottle-service crowd, but even downstairs the place is far from casual. At happy hour, dress to impress, and enjoy the $10 cocktails.
