As evidenced by Joe McCarthy, 1950s America got a lot of things right. Like, crazily, scarily, right. But they also had some cool stuff worth celebrating, which you should do at Storyville.
A speakeasy/nightclub-hybrid nestled underground in the former Saint space, Storyville slings upscale cocktails, small plates, and dance beats, and is named for the famed '50s jazz club that, in this same exact location, hosted legends like Billie Holiday, Charlie Parker, and Dave Brubeck, famous for getting recordings right by Take Five.
The Space: Revelry's split between two low-lit rooms both outfitted with elegant black/red damask print wallpaper & leather couches, with one housing the DJ & dance floor, and the other being the loungier Bordello Room, also what brothel-frequenters ask tailors to leave in their pants when measuring the inseam.
The Food: Upscale shareables include Steak Wellington w/ pickled shiitake mushrooms, Parm/pancetta-accompanied grilled oysters Rockefeller, and cod cheeks in "crawfish butter", meaning their chefs must have some tiny and nimble milking hands.
The Drinks: Each space has its own drink menu, with the Bordello serving tiki/ craft cocktails like A Day At The Races (Beefeater 24, Falernum, lemon) and the Suffering Bastard. The main club offers a choose-your-own-drink-adventure instead, letting you select your spirit and one of four accompaniments like the Cafe Mole with coffee beans, cocoa, and enough chipotle pepper to turn you bright red, so be careful who sees you after drinking it. http://thrl.st/pqgGSo
