Death & Co
New York, US
This dark and intimate East Village speakeasy is heavily decorated with awards (it was a mainstay on the early days of The World’s 50 Best Bars), and for good reason. It’s been one of New York’s top spots to get well-constructed cocktails for more than a decade, opening at the beginning of 2007. While the decor is timeless Manhattan – exposed brick, low-slung tables and a marble bar top – and the bartenders invoked days gone by in their bow ties and suspenders, the drinks have remained thoroughly modern, with a cocktail menu that changes twice a year. There is now also an outpost in The Ramble Hotel out in Denver, Colorado.
