At Apothéke, the presentation of a cocktail is just as dramatic as the cocktail itself. The bar is no longer a bar. It’s a stage. A chemistry lab. A theatre.

Located on a twisty Chinatown cul-de-sac in a former opium den, this apothecary-themed hideaway from cocktail master Alan Trummer boasts 250 specialty cocktails divided into categories like Stress Relievers, Pharmaceuticals, and Stimulants. The old-timey pharmacy vibe dominates the space—bartenders wear lab coats and use beakers to pour drinks—while the red leather banquettes pay tribute to the...

Ex-opium den turned medieval apothecary by Austrian mixologist. Only in Chinatown. James at the door working stealth entry behind Gold Flower Restaurant sign. Swank, sexy interior, with distressed walls, arch-topped shelves showing off backlit apothecary bottles. Libations follow the theme, broken down into stress relievers, analgesics, aphrodisiacs. Max out decadence via quasi-legal coca and...
