Located below the always-boisterous The Happiest Hour, Slowly Shirley feels like a 1940s-era Hollywood starlet saying she’s ready to slip into something more comfortable. The romantic Art Deco space is filled with oxblood banquettes, tables dimly lit with Oscar statuette–adorned light sconces and jazz piping through the speakers. Set up at the bar instead if you want to talk all things cocktail with the hyperknowledgeable bartenders. The drinks run pricey, but it’s the drinking equivalent of fine dining — the spirits used are expensive, and homemade juices, bitters, infusions, and syrups are de rigueur. The cocktail program is helmed by Jim Kearns, an industry veteran whose experience includes Death & Co. and Pegu Club, and drinks are credited to the bartenders who created them. Options include nuanced “scaffa”-style cocktails served room temperature to enhance the aromatics, to showstopping Tiki-inspired drinks like the Tahitian Coffee (for Two) made with rum, pisco, cold-brew coffee, and tropical fruit juices, served dramatically in a Chemex coffee brewer.
