The Roger Room
May 11, 2018
Though they intentionally kept hype to a minimum the word was soon out about this funky bar, home of some impeccably mixed cocktails. The Roger Room may channel the speakeasy vibe that is so popular at the moment – but it does so better than most. It’s a small, narrow intimate room with an art deco design and entrance still bearing the neon of the previous occupant. The drinks are truly superb and very much the heart of the operation. Their signature drink, the Thug, blends whiskey with bitters and lemon juice. It’s simple but elegantly executed: a true classic. The Flim Flam, a potent potion of gin, artichoke liqueur and sambuca, will challenge your palate in the best possible way. Cocktails of this quality don’t come cheap you’re looking at around $13 a drink, but, oh boy, are they ever worth it.
