City Guide: New York
Death & Co
A decade after establishing itself as a globally influential craft cocktail bar, Death & Co. is still humming.
Death & Co. came onto the scene on the eve of 2007 and established the East Village as the center of the city’s globally influential craft cocktail scene. A decade later, it’s still a must-visit bar, not just for its historic importance but also because of its modern but classic drinks served in the intimate quarters of a cozy neighborhood bar.
Arrive early to score a seat at the curved marble bar lined with petite, curvaceous bottles of bitters and spirits. Once inside it will take your eyes a while to adjust to the low light (and strain to read the menu if you’re over 40) that’s divided by spirit type, but it won’t take long to start up a conversation with the bartender and those seated next to you. For a more cuddly experience, request a side table from the host out front.
