116 Crown

Bar in New Haven

Upscale contemporary design, DJ sets, expertly mixed cocktails and an international wine list draw the style crowd to this Ninth Sq bar. Small plates and a raw bar keep you from toppling off your stool, but style this chic doesn't come cheap.

Bartender John Ginnetti runs cocktail classes ($45 per person) if you'd like to learn the art of that perfect pisco sour for yourself.
