Brandy Library

g3A small cozy place that holds more than 900 bottles of brandy, including a 1914 Pierre Ferrand cognac that will set you back more than $200 for just one glass. (Shush, it is not polite to shout “jobless recovery” in this library) If that’s too pricey for you, you can settle for one of their 100+ $16 cocktails that are mostly made with, well… you know what. The place seems like a cigar lounge minus the smoke, stench and leniency. They play traditional jazz and on Mondays it’s played live via a piano player. They take their collection very seriously and to prove it, they offer the unapprised some private and pricey tasting classes.

Hours:  Sun-Wed, 5pm-2am; Thu-Sat, 4pm-4am

Warren 77

waren 77A brand new bar opened by the owners of the ultra hip (Beatrice Inn and Smith & Mills) except the twist is that it is supposed to be a sports bar. Maybe that’s why they partnered with Sean Avery of the New York Rangers. The bar is full of New York sports memorabilia: old black-and-white photos of McEnroe, Yogi Berra drinking a Bud in the Yankees locker room, etc. There are TVs, table top Donkey Kong and burgers, I guess that’s what passes in Tribeca as “so blue collar”!
