Don’t let the tastefully appointed room—styled after a parlor in a Connery Bond flick—fool you. This is the work of madman sommelier Justin Vann, who’s fashioned a progressive list of oddball wines, sherry and whiskey. After making a name at Oxheart (whose kitchen serves Public’s bar food) Vann opened the rehabbed Cotton Exchange building to house his weird wine and whiskey stock with a side of highball cocktails to round it out.
