Of All the Gin Joints

It might be time to move beyond Tanqueray. And sure, Hendrick's is nice, but there's more to the juniper-scented liquor. Much more apparently.

Madam Geneva, the gin joint behind Double Crown in NoHo, has 30 different gins on hand, and has just begun a bargain tasting special. A flight of any three gins is $18. Bar manager Brian McGrory has some advice on what gins — London dry, Dutch-style Geneva and New World — to try at Tasting Table. The lush AvrKo owned and operated bar is a pretty pleasant place to while away an afternoon or evening, though you'd best time your visit wisely. Despite pricey gin-drinks, the place was having no trouble filling up, with barkeepers having to literally pushing people out the door at 4 a.m. — Eater advises to avoid the "shitshow" by only tippling with the Madam on weekdays. Does Thanksgiving count as a weekday?
