Concierge.com's insider take:
Located on a twisty Chinatown cul-de-sac in a former opium den, this apothecary-themed hideaway from cocktail master Alan Trummer boasts 250 specialty cocktails divided into categories like Stress Relievers, Pharmaceuticals, and Stimulants. The old-timey pharmacy vibe dominates the space—bartenders wear lab coats and use beakers to pour drinks—while the red leather banquettes pay tribute to the space's den-of-sin roots. Drinks like the Strawberry Fennel (featuring crushed fresh strawberries, vodka, and fennel oil) and the Pepper Infusion (made with green peppers, peppercorns, dill, and vodka) hover around $20 a piece, but, hey, they are medicinal, right?—Alexis Swerdloff
