Named after two famous racehorses, hence the equine logo, Saxon + Parole has something for everybody - from brunch to the early hours. By day a modern American brasserie with an outside terrace and a very accommodating long bar counter through to Madam Geneva, an attached speakeasy style bar with its own entrance at 4 Bleecker Street to while away the night. The homely food is served in hearty portions and the equally approachable bar menu ranges from a simple vodka and soda (with homemade flavoured soda) to signature cocktails such as the Spring Daiquiri (light rum, sugar snap peas, lemon-thyme cordial, lime and tarragon salt).

The "Cabinet of Cocktail Curiosities" allows regulars to pay a subscription to have their own bottle of the monthly bottled cocktail, pre-prepared, marked with their name and ready to drink on arrival. Nice touch.
