Jason Kosmas and Dushan Zaric, along with three fellow veteran bartenders, opened Employees Only in 2005. The dark, handsome Art Nouveau setting evokes the mystery of the Prohibition Era when speakeasies illegally served alcohol to thirsty customers. Time-honored cocktails like the sidecar were born of the era; however, they were usually made with liquor and flavorings of dubious quality. In Speakeasy, Kosmas and Zaric take their inspiration from these classics, then use the finest spirits, the freshest ingredients, and a good measure of reverence for their craft to elevate mixed drinks to artisanal status. Speakeasy does its due diligence in explaining bar and cocktail-making tools and techniques, but its genius lies in offering imaginative cocktails using fresh fruits and herbs, with a mind toward seasonality and while remaining true to the spirit of the originals: A ginger smash is offered in four different versions, made with kumquats, pineapple, pears, or cranberries, depending on the season. A millionaire cocktail becomes a billionaire cocktail with the addition of homemade grenadine and 107-proof bourbon. These modern twists on classic drinks will make Speakeasy a favorite with trendy imbibers and cocktail traditionalists alike.
