Speakeasy … and carry a high-limit credit card
At some point, America’s fascination with speakeasies and botanical cocktails will end.
For the time being, however, we’re going to enjoy the mystery and science of misleading entrances and plant-based cocktail formulas.
This month, Apotheke opens its second New York City location with Apotheke NoMad (Madison Square North).
Thrillist reports, “At the new Apotheke NoMad, guests can expect all of the signature apothecary-inspired drinks in a space separated into two sections: a cellar speakeasy and penthouse lounge.
“Featuring a staircase adorned with hundreds of dried herbs and wildflowers and an aurora rose marble bar, the cellar speakeasy accommodating up to seventy-four people is set to open on July 12.
“And the penthouse lounge, with floor-to-ceiling stained-glass windows and views of The Empire State Building and Madison Square Park, will launch later this summer.”
On the drink menu:
- Voyage in the Blue (blue spirulina infused gin, blue borage flower, APO Illuminate Bitters)
- Live and Learn (turmeric infused cachaça, gooseberry, salty fingers, APO Cerebral Bitters)
To your health!
