Kaz Bar was vino-only from its founding in 2001 until original owner Peter Kasperski closed it 17 years later. Enter restaurateur Tommy Plato of Second Story Liquor Bar fame, who reopened the posh lounge in 2019, adding a focus on rare and distinctive whiskeys and a bespoke supper club atmosphere big on leather and wood. Connoisseurs can indulge in any of its curated selection of Scotch, whiskeys, bourbons, and ryes of the high-end, imported, and single-barrel ilk. There are such small-batch favorites and rarities mixed in the selection of over 40 options. Wine lovers needn’t worry, though, as Kaz Bar still has a surfeit of red, white, and sparkling wines, uncorking bliss to pair perfectly with a food menu of snacks and bites with Italian and Asian influences such as a Korean pork belly served in a lobster roll and cacio pepe.
