Center Bar, a classic cocktail lounge with an Art Deco flair, channels old-school glamour while keeping an eye on the future. The ever-changing list includes variations on a theme with traditional drinks done several different ways.
The Expert: Adam Petronzio recently joined the team at Center Bar and its sister restaurant, Porter House Bar & Grill, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge on all things cocktails and wine. Among his creations, look for a spin on the popular Moscow Mule — the Columbus’s Circle, with Greenhook Ginsmith Gin, sloe gin, and ginger beer.
Don’t Miss: A favorite among regulars is the King’s Old Fashioned, which combines Elijah Craig Bourbon with the perfect amount of bitters. It’s garnished with a cured walnut.
