Known For

The lowdown

This late-night lounge/kitchen adds color to a blank riverside block with a well-chosen cocktail lineup, a nice selection of small plates, and an airy space inspired by dreams of Central America. Decorative touches include reclaimed pine-wood floors, black steel chandeliers, and white vaulted ceilings that recall an early-20th-century Spanish mission. The venue’s high-design menu includes fancy but approachable cocktails heavy on island liquors, citrus juices, and exotic additions like chile-infused rum and celery bitters. Try the Midnight Matinee, made with Lustau Vermut, Oloroso, Laphroaig, Amaro, passion fruit, and mint.
