From the street Kask could be mistaken for a shop rather than a cocktail bar being little more than a domestic living room in size with seating for 30 or so. However, it has a big personality with warmly lit rustic décor and a hefty oak bartop.

The leather bound cocktail list is curated by spirit base and is a mix of classical classically inspired drinks. The rye based Alexander Wept is served in a cherry bark smoked glass and like many of the other drinks on the list uses amaro. Sherry and vermouth also feature heavily on the menu.

The food offering stretches to charcuterie and cheese and other similar bar snacks.
