As a downtown-cool-kid hangout, this dim drinkery couldn’t have been better designed. What is somewhat wasted in the original’s out-of-the-way Prospect Heights location slides into place in Tribeca: gleaming subway tiles, a long bar with built-in stools, dim lighting, and a waitstaff so attractive you at least look twice. It’s a blessing, since the neighborhood needed a good, classy cocktail bar. The drink list is brief but boozy, with pungent options like the bright, Scotch-based, ginger- and orange-infused White Horse, or the smoother, darker cognac-amaretto combo that is the Weather Up Jr. Food is a strange and sometimes brilliant bar-bites lineup from chef Tyler Kord of oddball eatery No. 7. Good luck cobbling together a meal from the offerings but it works if it’s just a snack you need. Oysters on the half shell benefit so much from a hit of green chile that you’ll wonder why you’ve never had the pairing before. Broccoli rilletes are served traditional-style, in a ramekin with toasts, crème fraiche, radishes and, strangely but deliciously, another ramekin of crab meat. You could while away the whole evening here until you get the bill which, if it’s even calculated properly (hand writing things on a calling card is cute but not practical) might induce sticker shock. Just take a cue from the lissome young things around you and act like it doesn’t matter.
