FTFA:  But Muldoon knew it couldn't be just any bar - or even any mixology bar. The "Gangs of New York" theme - meaning a 19th-century Irish New York theme, more or less - suggested itself because of Muldoon's interest in the rough-and-tumble era. Moreover, it was an era when mixology (or at least an early version of it) was just coming of age. "There was a cocktail thing at the same time as the Irish thing," says Muldoon.

Sounds like somebody hasn't seen the movie.

"Mixologist" = overpriced drinks and a douche-crew crowd. No thanks.
