Experimental Cocktail Club

191 Chrystie St.
New York, NY 10002
If there's such a thing as a "bartender's bar," then the Experimental Cocktail Club certainly qualifies as a "mixologist's mixology lounge." The Lower East Side speakeasy-inspired joint is both Parisian and New York prohibition-era inspired, with Bogart-approved couches and chairs. Although head bartender Nicolas de Soto is all about concocting new creations rather than perfecting old standards, as suggested by the name. His creations warrant the steep ticket price for their attention to detail. It's an uncommonly classy joint for the new party-centric LES. Go on a Tuesday when there is live jazz.
