    For specifically "molecular" -
    Booker & Dax
    The bar @ WD-50

    For not quite so molecualr but still very creative:
    Death & Co.
    Mayahuel
    Apotheke
    Flatiron Lounge
    Ward III

      I checked online and they do not list any drinks that I would consider "Molecular mixology"

        Well, what do you consider molecular? I mean, as far as the first two go - they're clarifying liquids in centrifuges for chrissakes. At B&D they're making hot drinks with a 1500-degree poker that "sears" them, and shaking your cocktails in a custom-designed CO2 pressurized shaker. What modernist techniques are they missing out on?

          'Friend of Devil' cocktail at Booker & Dax, made with a 1500-degree poker that sgordon mentioned. For more pics: http://blog.naver.com/kosmose7/901344...

            Most "advanced" bars like the above simply list their drinks by name and ingredients - they don't go into detail on techniques on the menus.
