Dead Line is a small, sleek, dark bar with a bottle collection so extensive that a massive ladder is used to get to the top-shelf stuff. Not only is it a fantastic space to go for fancy cocktails, but the dinner menu also has some pretty great South American small plates, like arepas with braised brisket and squash al pastor tacos. Take advantage of happy hour, when bowls of plantain/yucca chips, marinated olives, and spiced nuts are all free with a drink.
