To make the most of this place, look for the giant magnifying glass/copper pipe and French horn fixtures. That’s how you know you’re getting close to the antique redwood bar. From there you’ll see a hole in the wall that separates the bar and the room behind the bar—that’s where the contortionists, trapeze artists or other cabaret entertainers will perform throughout the night.
Upstairs, a Victorian-furniture-filled lounge will grace you with signature 'tails like the Manhattan Project (rye, sweet vermouth, maraschino liqueur), the eleventy-jillion-ingrediented Rickshaw (which somehow includes shochu, gin, absinthe, and Lillet Blanc), and a Bulleit bourbon and ginger beer number served with a Fernet sidecar/ginger back that's dubbed The Kingmaker, aka Queen Elizabeth's hoo-ha.
Downstairs, their Dance Dance Revolutionary club boasts an almost criminally high-end imported sound system (one of only three like it in the States) ...
Behind the project are Tadd Cortell, Manny Alferez (aka DJ M3), Micah Burns, and Chris Smith, who’ve done up the space with an art nouveau-meets-steampunk look and a gold-plated sound system. Expect quality drinks and a wide range of music, including live performances.
