Whiskey Tango Foxtrot – Meet Bar Jackalope, Seven Grand’s secret backroom whiskey parlor – Tasting Table 3/18/14

March 19th, 2014 — 1:31pm

Pedro Bar Jackalope
If you prefer whiskey, you already know Downtown’s Seven Grand.

But what about Bar Jackalope?

To find it, look for an unmarked door near the back of Seven Grand. Push the white button alongside. When someone answers, request a table.

Modeled after the posh whiskey lounges of Japan, the 18-seat Jackalope is a relaxing respite from the lively main bar outside: There’s an antique gramophone playing Coltrane records and taxidermy on the walls. An immaculately dressed bartender stirs perfect Manhattans and Old-Fashioneds. Read the rest here!
