Booze it up underground in the bowels of the Chelsea Market.

425 W. 15th St., New York, NY, 10014


Known For

The lowdown

In the bowels of Chelsea Market is this familiar play on a trend harkening back to a bygone era: brick archways and cast-iron fixtures, and playful Sistine Chapel knockoffs pointing their way across the cavernous ceiling. The menu is similarly old-timey, with its pickle plates and a witty cocktail list. Sure, the clientele may not be as hip as in some nearby Meatpacking venues, but they’re certainly enjoying themselves with choices such as Poppy Don’t Preach (white wine, amaro, grapefruit and lime) or the I’m on a Boat (bourbon, lemon, cinnamon, and blueberry jam).
