In a city known for its beer, cocktail lounges are the newest obsession.
Text the number on the door of Sticky Bar (182 Campbell St., level 2)—the bouncer will appear within minutes to whisk you to the top floor; order a Lovegun (amaretto, Campari, and orange juice).
Mad-scientist-style cocktails are made using such ingredients as liquid nitrogen at the Roosevelt (32 Orwell St.). Try the Martini of Tomorrow.
For a standout negroni (and a 300-bottle wine list), head to Love, Tilly Devine (91 Crown Lane).
