Old Lightning

WHY HERE: This is one secret speakeasy that’s serious about the secret part. You have to make a reservation using the email address on the website, and cell phones are so forbidden that the staff will actually take yours away when you enter.

WHY NOW: A side room with its own entrance at Scopa Italian Roots, Old Lightning is where you’ll find Steve Livigni and Pablo Moix’s private stash of vintage spirits. They’ve been assembling rare pre-Prohibition whiskeys, cult-favorite tequilas and even decades-old liqueurs for years for this place, which also boasts perhaps the lengthiest cocktail menu in town.
