A virtual time capsule, nautical-themed Queen Mary opened in a turn-of-the-century tavern that had been shuttered since the 1970s. Very little was changed from the ship-cabin-like interior, save for adding a new rail to the back of the mahogany bar, creating a peninsula of seats. The menu is heavy on maritime booze (navy-strength gin and rum; scotch), and there’s a daily grog and punch service.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Navy Strength Old Fashioned, made with Hayman’s Royal Dock Navy Strength gin, Smith & Cross Navy Strength rum, Angostura and demerara sugar.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: With all the navy-strength booze you’re drinking, you’re going to want to order some chowder or whitefish dip or oysters—or all three.
