COCKTAILS 


THE FOLLOWING PAGES LIST OUR WIDE RANGE OF RARE, REVIVED AND ORIGINAL COCKTAILS. OUR LIST IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR SECTIONS, SPANNING THE GLORIOUS HISTORY OF THE COCKTAIL: PRE-PROHIBITION, PROHIBITION, POST-WAR AND NIGHTJAR SIGNATURES. OUR BAR STAFF WILL HAPPILY MAKE ANY CLASSIC OR MIX YOU A COCKTAIL TO ORDER. 


PRE-PROHIBITION - 1600-1918 
ANCIENT RECIPES AS WELL AS EARLY CLASSICS FROM THE LIKES OF ICONIC BARTENDERS JERRY THOMAS AND HARRY JOHNSON. EXPECT AN ECLECTIC MIX OF FRUITY FLAVOURS, CREAMY TEXTURES AND SOME STRONGER, DRIER CONCOCTIONS.

PROHIBITION: 1918-1932
 SERIOUS COCKTAILS FROM A DESPERATE TIME. MOSTLY SHORT, STRONG, AND AROMATIC  NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED! 

POST-WAR: 1940-2000
ENCOMPASSING OUR TWISTS ON SOME  LATTER-DAY DRINKS FROM THE COCKTAIL HINTERLAND THAT WAS THE POST-WAR YEARS UP TO THE COCKTAIL RENAISSANCE OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM. WE ARE CONFIDENT THAT OUR VERSIONS WILL SURPRISE YOU. 

NIGHTJAR SIGNATURES
