It made too much sense for Eduardo Castillo to unveil a fashion-themed watering hole smack-dab in the midst of FIDM, the Cooper Building, and the New Mart. A gorgeous retro sewing machine graces a corner window, and the drinks are nods to famous designers (natch). Our poison of choice is the Gaultier, which is a dizzying concoction of watermelon and agave. Cheers to JPG!
