The Newest Speakeasy

Boozy NYC, the latest blog to step into the world of night, drops word of yet another speakeasy that is set to open this week. The space that once held the beloved Table 50 and the original Mr. Black is now home to Woodson and Ford, below the unmemorable Corner Shop C on Broadway in Greenwich Village. The room was first used in 1855 and was designed to mimic a German beer hall and has held a colorful (brothel) and sometimes tragic (deadly fire at Infinity Disco in 1979) history. According to the Booze, today "The decor (and staff) will be familiar to anyone who's been to Apotheke, Tailor or Clover Club - lots of wood, plush sofas, old-fashioned light fixtures," and the Woodson and Ford cocktail (applejack, zacapa 23, benedictine, sweet vermouth, Fee brothers' whiskey barrel bitters) are apparently going down smooth for $12.

The full cocktail menu is after the jump. [Boozy NYC]

Anonymous, have no fear. This is a private event space that is un-named. All the information here is from a blog that didn't fact check. There us no pr for this space and only valid requests for reservations will be entertained.
