This week’s new openings, launches, and events
A new cocktail lounge has opened on the Upper East Side. The retro speakeasy is designed to evoke retro Havana. Snack on bites like lobster arepas and, yes, Cubanos while sipping on the brightly colored cocktails — one charcoal-infused drink is an inky black, while another made with golden beet is a vibrant orange. Heads up: This is one of the seven spots in the city that allows late-night smoking.
