Done less on the lines of the walnut-paneled masterpiece that was the famed Park Room in New York’s Plaza Hotel than a chic and stylish hipster hangout that suits this city, they more than make up for the flightiness of the setting in the drinks selection. Wine is abundant as are the spirits but it’s the cocktail concoctions that stand out. Dozens of creative variations include the Exiled Cathusian (Green Chatreuse, Tanqueray Gin, Cointreau and powdered sugar); and Uptown Rita (tequila, Cointreau and fresh lime juice rimmed with salt) and American classics with twists such as the Georgia Mint Julep and the New-Style Old-Fashioned. There are high balls on offer too.
