The Deep End, the half-a-week cocktail lounge at Honeycut that commenced back in March and helmed by Proprietors, LLC (The Normandie Club, Death & Co NYC), and 213 Hospitality, is finally ready to show off its bizarre and kind of awesome interior. Dubbed the "new escapism," the lounge fuses a heavy dose of David Bowie and tiki, resulting in a postmodern pastiche of bright colors, futuristic lines, and of course, forward-thinking cocktails. But really, the place could just be a glorious 80s style homage.

The cocktail menu, which spans seven glorious pages, include such far-fetched drinks as the Springtide, made with Aviation gin, Batavia Arrack, cucumber, lime, kaffir pineapple, and Pernod Pastis. A Hydro Medusa blends Midori (seriously), vodka, vermouth blanc, Giffard Litchi-li, ginger, and orgeat while the appropriately named Stardust fuses nectarine, sage, and Cremant d'Alsace.

The Deep End runs Sunday to Wednesday at the Honeycut cocktail lounge.
