Enter through River North restaurant Gilt Bar and head downstairs through the velvet curtains next to the bar to find this hidden hot spot (formerly called Curio). The Library is a basement cocktail lounge serving an expanded menu of 20-plus hand-crafted drinks in a candelit speakeasy atmosphere. Several favorites from Gilt upstairs are served, including the rosy-hued Death's Door Daisy. Quaffs might include a Oaxacan Old Fashioned made with mezcal and tequila, or a the Mariposa Fizz, a citrus-chocolate concoction spiked with Flor de Cana rum.
