Every cocktail has a story, with the bar's own Field Guide to the World's Most Innovative Spirits offering a treasure trove of history, provenance, and production methods. Ingredients are carefully sourced, and a rotating “Canvas” menu features seasonal creations and collaborations led by celebrated mixologist Lorenzo Antinori.
