Swanky Sports Bar


El Jockey at Super Linda
109 W. Broadway, at Reade St.; 212-227-8998
Imagine a place in this town where you could plausibly run into Nacho Figueras, fresh off his polo pony and ready for a stylish cocktail. That place is the basement lounge beneath South American–inspired hot spot Super Linda, where the bona fides are in order—the project of time-tested nightlife masters Matt Abramcyk (Beatrice Inn) and Serge Becker (The Box, Miss Lily’s); entrance is at the discretion of longtime Pastis maître d’ Chris Session—and the possibilities of what might happen next seem endless. Descend the stairs behind the hostess stand to find a warren of red leather banquettes and murals of gamboling horses. Ponder these as you sip a 60 Seconds Over Buenos Aires (cold-brewed iced coffee with Fernet Branca, Mexican Coke, and Stoli; $14) and nibble on delectable tostadas de esquites ($8) topped with sweet corn mash and threads of habanero pepper—or don’t, if you’d rather scan the room. Nacho could walk in at any time.
