Oct 2, 2014 1:00 pm

Among the regulars of bar 151 on the Lower East Side were Alex Day and David Kaplan, two of the cocktail-crafty co-owners of Death & Co. “Before we knew each other, we both independently went to that bar so many times,” Day recalls.  “I used to go there almost every night.” In a boozy full circle, the business partners recently bought the bar at 151 Rivington and reopened it with light renovations and a drink menu overhaul.
