Devon Tarby of Normandie Club and Walker Inn
A partner at cocktail consulting company Proprietors LLC, Devon Tarby got her start at The Varnish before linking up with David Kaplan and Alex Day at the disco-themed Honeycut, which bridged the gap between serious cocktails and clubby nightlife. Their latest venture is the neighborhood watering hole Normandie Club, with a hidden, geekier bar, Walker Inn, inside. For the latter, Tarby worked up a list of location-inspired drinks like the Sonoma, a heady mix of chardonnay, calvados, honey, verjus, and a white-pepper distillate ($20).
