Tippling Club propels mixology to dizzying heights, with a technique and creativity that could turn a teetotaller into a born-again soak. Sample the Dreams & Desires menu before ordering by chewing your way through alcohol-infused gummy bears, which give a hint of what's to come. Our pick is the Champagne-based Beauty, served with a cherry sorbet lipstick.

The best seats are at the bar, under a ceiling of hanging bottles. The adjoining restaurant is highly regarded, though painfully priced.
