Rusted Mule

Entering this 1908 brick-walled space, Rusted Mule (opened in February 2017) is a nautical, steampunk wonderland of dramatic chandeliers, metal and copper works (including the namesake rusted mule), a glowing onyx bar that changes colors and sea-colored flooring. Opened by Kristian Cosentino, Joseph Epstein, Christina Mae Henderson, Chris Mansury and Richard Vila, the lofty space holds a mezzanine with velvet couches and tables made from massive trees under skylights.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: With the initial menu inspired by the German expressionist 1927 film, Metropolis (stay tuned for more film themes behind future menus), there are a range of initial cocktail standouts, including one of four $9 house Mules on draft: La Mula shows off Espolón tequila, lime and ginger beer over crushed ice with fascinating layers from an infusion of ginseng-coca leaf.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Along with Cosentino, chef Glen Schwartz hails from Dirty Water and turns out fun bar bites like carrot corn dogs and soft-serve laced with the likes of apples and bourbon.
