You’re going to see The Book of Mormon at the Eugene O’ Neill Theatre and you need to know where to get a drink afterward? No problem! We’ve got the cleanest-cut bar around.
The Show: Elder Price and Elder Cunningham are two naive missionaries who set out to spread the Mormon gospel in Africa. The satirical, Tony-winning musical by the creators of South Park opened on Broadway in 2011, making instant stage stars out of Andrew Rannells and Josh Gad.
The Bar: Elegantly lined with books, the bi-level space at Library feels especially civilized for a tipple and a bite. The kitchen is run by James Beard Award-winning chef Daniel Humm, and the bar is curated by Tales of the Cocktail Award winner Leo Robitschek.
What to Drink: Saints be praised! There’s an extensive list of “mocktails” for teetotalers, including the Cease and Desist ($8; OJ, cream and orange-blossom water) and La Piña ($8; pineapple, jalapeño-infused agave and lime). Sinners might as well order up a boozy Satan’s Circus ($16), a blend of rye, chili-infused Aperol, cherry heering and lemon.
