A hand-laid floor of copper pennies is only one obsessive detail of this ultra-cool space created from a former strip club. Bartenders and co-owners Jeremy Johnson and Hannah Kandle have created a menu that goes "meta" on classic cocktails, tracing their evolution into inventive drinks, such as The High Pant (bourbon, bitters, Fernet, ginger and orange). Hand-printed wallpaper and a marble bar may signal "fancy," but Wu-Tang Wednesdays and the sometimes-available Pappy Van Winkle Jell-O shots signal a refreshing cheekiness that's at the heart of everything Meta.
