CrossBar, Todd English’s multi-story haven in the former home of notorious nineties nightclub the Limelight, is divided into numerous distinctive spaces: You can lounge by the fireplace at the downstairs bar, outside in the shrub-laden spacious garden patio, upstairs at the dining room’s bar, or inside the private speakeasy-esque lounge with rich leather couches and mirrors that turn into TVs with the flip of a button. Although the beverage menu’s primary focus is whiskey—with rotating flights named after the seven deadly sins—there’s an extensive wine list and a variety of cocktails, many made with housemade bitters like the Purple Rain, a balance of Plymouth gin, crème de violette, egg white, and house bitters.
