I stopped by Alembic Bar yesterday and confirmed that they are indeed planning on re-launching their “Savoy Cocktail Book Night” the evening of Sunday, Dec 14th.
On Savoy nights, instead of having their regular menu, Alembic simply hands you a “Savoy Cocktail Book” and the bartender tells you to pick a cocktail, any cocktail.
Previously, I have described this enterprise as “masochism”, but others have called it “Hard Core” and “Really Cool”.
Lately, however, I’ve been thinking “Fool Hardy” might best describe the enterprise, as the rumor is they will be allowing a certain middle aged cocktail enthusiast try his hand at Savoy mixology.
Hope to see you there!
