As drinkers tire of the (sometimes faux) gravitas that weighs down haute cocktailing, places like Golden Cadillac make more and more sense. Whether or not the cocktail program is successful is a more complicated question. More

Making Infused Digestifs With a Japanese Coffee Dripper at Piora, NYC

Where to Drink: New York Maryse Chevriere 6 comments

"The concept for the digestifs at Piora first came about because our head bartender, Shinya Yamao, had this idea to create a dessert cocktail featuring banana and rum but wanted to do it without any added sugar or fruit juice," explains Simon Kim, owner and general manager of Piora in New York's West Village. The logistics didn't seem clear until Yamao came across the Oji Water Dripper, a Japanese cold drip coffee machine that allows the consumer to control the level of extraction. More

Revamping Rum and Coke With Kola Nuts at Betony, NYC

Where to Drink: New York Roger Kamholz Post a comment

Not long ago, Betony got in an order of fresh kola nuts, which, to be exact, isn't a nut at all; it's a podded fruit borne of the kola tree, an evergreen plant found in the tropics of Africa.

Taste in Technicolor: We Try the Brunch Cocktails at Alder in NYC

Where to Drink: New York Roger Kamholz 1 comment

Alder bar director Kevin Denton's dinnertime drink menu includes what I contend is a mighty nifty feature: the option to order several of the cocktails as "shorts." You get less than a full drink and pay half of the full price. For instance, you can have yourself a Bloody Mary tasting by ordering a trio of shorts. Our favorite: the Yellow Light, a bright, savory-sweet combination of pineapple, yellow pepper, and jalapeño tequila. More

Skeeball, Bowling, Board Games, and More: Our Favorite Brooklyn Bars With Games

Where to Drink: New York Niki Achitoff-Gray 10 comments

It's hard to tease out what takes a bar from middling watering hole to travel-worthy destination. After all, there are date bars and dive bars, beer bars and cocktail bars, hotel bars and dance bars; there are bars for music and celebrations, and there are quiet, empty bars for drinking yourself into a wallowing puddle of self-pity. But if there's one thing I've learned over my ever-so-extensive six years as an of-age drinker, it's that every bar can be improved by one simple addition: a sh*t-ton of games. More
