If you believe that a hand-crafted cocktail can be a work of art, then you need to stop by this retro gin joint where owner Paul Maloney (a fine artist himself) is serving up a wide selection of classically-inspired drinks to an ever-growing legion of devotees. The cocktails are grouped according to their base — gin, bourbon, rum, brandy, absinthe, etc. — but if you don’t like what’s on the menu, they’ll craft a whole new concoction for you, always using top-of-the-line ingredients. With all this — combined with the popular Speakeasy jazz series — it’s no wonder that the New York Times recently called the Stockade “the epitome of cocktail chic.”
