Food & Wine magazine has named The Kill Devil Club as one of the “Best New Bars in the U.S.”

The award goes to newly opened bars with “inventive cocktail lists created with avant-garde techniques.”

The Kill Devil Club, which opened in mid 2012 at 31 E. 14th St. in the Power & Light District, features signature rum cocktails like the Bacchanal (with aged Plantation rum, lemon, agave nectar, coconut water, egg white and bitters) and the Honey Bear Julep (with peach wood-smoked and aged rum, Aperol, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, honey syrup and mint).

Food & Wine says: “Bartender-restaurateur Ryan Maybee consulted on the opening of this ‘adult oasis’ that specializes in live jazz and punches.”

“It’s cool to get that kind of recognition,” Maybee said.
