If the arm-long list intimidates (or the $4,000, $5,000 or $15,000 bottles of booze do), lift off with a Scotch, rum or tequila tasting flight.
Fine & Rare is grand. It’s striking. It’s civilised. It’s 20th-century NYC distilled into a bar. It’s Mad Men. It’s the Cotton Club. It’s leather banquettes and polished wood. It’s live jazz. It’s strip steak, Littleneck clams and mac ’n’ cheese. And, as the name suggests, it’s all about hard-to-find liquor. The bar stocks an incredible range of lesser-spotted spirits that will make even the casual visitor feel like an intrepid adventurer.
