One of a flurry of new bars with Benjamin Schiller at the helm (The Sixth, Apogee), Leviathan is an ode to the legend and lore of sea monsters, kitted out with sailing-log-inspired menus, brass fixtures and glassware straight out of Iron Islands in “Game of Thrones.” The bar’s namesake cocktail honors a biblical-era sea serpent, and if you close your eyes while taking a sip, it tastes like a tropical storm.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: ​The Leviathan, featuring gin, rum, aquavit, ginger, lime, bitters and shaved bonito flakes.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: ​Leviathan is located at Dana Hotel and Spa, two-dozen flights below Schiller’s over-the-top lounge, Apogee. If you plan to visit both, pace yourself.
