Violet Hour information
This nouveau speakeasy isn’t marked, so look for the mural-slathered, wood-panel building and the door topped by a yellow lightbulb. Inside, high-backed booths, chandeliers and long velvet drapes provide the backdrop to elaborately engineered cocktails that the Beard Awards deemed best in the US. The Armageddon (lemon-and-cinnamon-tinged whiskey) shows why. As highbrow as it sounds, Violet Hour is welcoming and accessible.
