Find far-out cocktails at this contemporary bar and diner inside the O Hotel. This is an impressively well-stocked restaurant bar and the bar staff are well trained and in possession of sound technique. Just seven cocktails are on the list, each at a reasonable $10.
The palate here is more aimed at discerning spirits aficionados than apprentices - these are flavour-packed serves with a punch. The Chapter & Verse will put hairs on your chest with its combination of rye, amontillado sherry, amaro, elderflower, Benedictine and bitters, while For Esme brings together Irish whiskey, amaro, pear eau de vie, cinnamon bark, lemon and bitters. Having spied our bartender's particularly energetic shake, we immediately went off-menu and ordered Ramos Gin Fizzes. He didn't bat an eyelid and made three perfectly executed drinks.
