Death & Company

January 5, 2011

“Death isn’t a partner at this speakeasy-esque gem, but the creative twists on pre-Prohibition cocktails sure are killer.” -New York Magazine

I have always been attracted to the unconventional & “Death & Co.” is nothing short of unconventional. The proprietors of this speak easy are  first-timer David Kaplan and Bourgeois Pig owner Ravi DeRoss.

There concept:

“In 1919 the Volstead Act brought a swift end to nightlife, and the refined craft of the American bartender was outlawed. It was thought that to drink alcohol was to live a life shadowed by death. It was thought by some that these were death and company.It has taken us nearly a century to restore flavor to the drink and class to the specialty cocktail. To those who shun the night, we tip our hats. To those who shine after dusk, we offer a warm embrace. Welcome to the golden age. Welcome to Death & Co.”

I love the concept, I love the cocktails, & I love the ambiance…thus I felt this little East Village treasure deserved a shout out – to all those who shine after dusk “Enjoy”!!!
