With a stomach full of tasty burgers swimming in Porkslap (see post below), we headed off to Death & Company (443 East 6th Street) for some fine beverages. D&C is yet another of Community Board 3's (CB3) victims, but I'm happy to say that it's now re-opened & serving up some of the best drinks in the city.
The bar is named for a Prohibition-era art movement which produced seemingly anti-alcohol propaganda posters--which were actually encrypted maps to local speakeasies.
The decor is 'speakeasy', much like Little Branch - very nice. Our bartender, Brian, was amazing. Stupidly, I ordered a Duvel to start (anyone can pour a bottle of beer), but I wised up for the 2nd round & got an Americana.
The place is swanky, the drinks are excellent, although not cheap - but worth it for the experience. If you're in the 'hood, check Death & Company out!
