Amor Y Amargo (love and bitterness) is a tiny dozen seater cocktail bar focusing on bitters, also doubling as a retail outlet for a bewildering range of bitters, with barware and bar books also stocked. The 18 strong cocktail menu is roughly split evenly between House Favourites "drinks that define us" and Riffs on Classics "our interpretation of the classics" along with dealer's / drinkers choice Bespoke Cocktails based around either an Old-Fashioned, Manhattan or Negroni. There's some very creative and tasty cocktails on offer as well as house-made sweet vermouth on tap.
