Library of Distilled Spirits

Union Square NYC 

The Bar

The Library of Distilled Spirits collection of over 1,500 bottles produced around the world may be daunting, but our barkeepers and an encyclopedic volume of distilled spirits will help you choose. We also offer innovative cocktails; an extensive list of classic drinks; and a limited menu are also served.

The Design

Designed by Dutch East, the bar’s glowing, floor-to-ceiling liquor library shelves are the focal point of the Library of Distilled Spirits’ interior. Found vintage captain’s chairs and small tables scattered around the room offer a relaxing environment for daytime enjoyment or a lively cocktail scene at night. White glass lamps encased in brass line the walls and zinc bar top, casting an inviting glow visible through the street-facing windows. A heavy wood communal library table sits at the center of the room, beneath a large three-tiered chandelier fitted with bulbous glass sconces, offering a comfortable space for groups to gather.
