Wallpaper - - Wine & Design -

Aim­ing to sat­isfy pa­trons’ thirst for knowl­edge as well as bev­er­ages, the new Li­brary of Dis­tilled Spir­its in Union Square fea­tures its own en­cy­clo­pe­dia, a unique guide to the 1,000 spir­its – in­clud­ing rare Ja­panese whiskies and Chartreuse liqueur from the 1850s – that it stocks on its il­lu­mi­nated ‘li­brary’ shelves. De­signed by New York-based firm Dutch East and fea­tur­ing vin­tage cap­tain’s chairs and wooden ta­bles, the bar was es­tab­lished in part­ner­ship with Dushan Zaric, co-founder of award-win­ning West Vil­lage speakeasy Em­ploy­ees Only. As well as 150 clas­sic cock­tails, it serves a sea­sonal drinks menu and house spe­cials in­clud­ing Pisco sours, Port Roy­als and the more un­usual West­ern Ad­di­tion, a mix of te­quila, rhubarb and sparkling sake.
