Beatrice Inn



Exclusive speakeasy from Paul Sevigny. If you manage to make it past the iron velvet ropes, have fun!

The Menu: Julia Jaksic, chef at Employees Only, serves up NYC throwbacks like steak, Reubens, and a burger on a Kaiser roll. Cocktails ($12): old favorites like the negroni, Moscow mule, and even an egg cream made with chocolate syrup, seltzer, and vanilla vodka.

The Space: A warrenlike layout with extremely low ceilings. Oil paintings, old chests and bureaus, and nautical mirrors give the three front rooms — a tiny den with a brick fireplace, a main room with a leather couch, and a white-tiled barroom — a captain's-quarters vibe. Steps ascend to a back room with a D.J. booth, wooden ceiling beams, banquettes, and mirrored walls.

The Plan: Sevigny says, "The whole idea behind the bar-restaurant is bringing things back to NYC, like American and New York things." Monday Scrabble sessions and Italian-food specials will cater to the old regulars. Saturday nights will be so-called jacket-and-tie affairs. When we were there, the D.J. spun everything from metal to Motown, and there was dancing and decadence aplenty.
