Concierge.com's insider take:
Despite the impressive collection of single malts and cognacs, this clubby Tribeca den is neither overly rarefied nor hypermasculine. You're just as likely to find a group of Japanese women decompressing from a Soho shopping excursion as a pack of celebratory bond traders swirling Riedel snifters to a soundtrack of big band music. The 1,000-bottle selection can be intimidating, but a "spirit sommelier" is on hand to guide you, and the kitchen prepares tasty snacks, such as Gruyère cheese napoleons and buttery croque monsieurs, late into the evening.
Open Sundays through Wednesdays 5 pm to 1 am, Thursdays 4 pm to 2 am, Fridays and Saturdays 4 pm to 4 am.
