Features
Great cocktails, Great design, Modern style

When it opened, Jules Basement was intended to be a speakeasy-style bar, a secret spot known only among friends and friends of friends who spread the news that there was an literal underground bar behind a refrigerator door in the restaurant at Julio Verne 93. Thanks to social media and online review sites, word got out fast and Jules Basement has become a magnet for bar hoppers who love craft cocktails and hangouts where decor is as important as drinks. With respect to the former, expect a black-and-white color scheme, lots of texture on the ceiling and bar, and Damien Hirst-esque skulls (minus the shimmering diamonds). As far as drinks go, the menu is fairly extensive and runs an impressive gamut, with everything from aguardiente to whisky (and, of course, tequila and mezcal) as base ingredients. For something with a Mexican flavor, order the Low Key, a mezcal cocktail that features vermouth, crème de cacao, fresh Eureka lemon juice, mole bitters, and absinthe.
