Patent Coffee / Patent Pending

Coffeehouse by day, speakeasy by night, this extra-tucked-away spot is already wowing visitors. The legit coffeehouse is airy and modernist, with carefully sourced coffees and tasty pastries. After 5 p.m., you’ll head downstairs through a hidden door to a sultry brick-walled cave to sample signature drinks put together by bartenders who honed their skills at The Dead Rabbit and BlackTail. Turquoise banquettes and exposed lighting evoke a bygone era.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: The spirit-forward Radio Waves: tequila, mezcal, agricole rhum, basil, Thai chili, lime juice and cucumber

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Eccentric inventor Nikola Tesla lived and worked in this building (there’s a plaque outside), and the artistic menu and drink names pay tribute to him.
