Whether you’re meeting a secret lover or plotting world domination, you’ll need a cozy, dimly lit place in which to operate. Capitalizing on a frequently overlooked space that was perhaps a little too far from the mixology action at Downtown Cocktail Room, the bar/lounge’s back room, formerly called the Speakeasy, has itself become a destination for canoodling couples and solo imbibers. In its new incarnation as Mike Morey’s Sip ’n’ Tip, the room evokes the chill side of Michael and Jennifer Cornthwaite’s aesthetic, with white subway tiles, concrete walls and a selection of whiskey and beers that yearn to be enjoyed side by side. Take a stool or a booth and let the flickering candlelight and soulful jukebox tunes inspire that newly hatched something. 111 Las Vegas Blvd. South (entrance from the alley or through DCR),
