A Gin and Aquavit Cocktail
Join Me At Speed Rack on January 8 in San Francisco

Cocktail Menu: Honor Bar in Emeryville, California

Opening January 3, 2012 in Emeryville near San Francisco is Honor Bar.

At the helm of the operation is Alex Smith, formerly of Gitane, Smuggler's Cove, and Gather. Also joining the crew are Reza Esmaili (Smuggler's Cove, Conduit, Long Bar), Peter Vestinos (former Chicagoan, Long Bar), and Jason Hubert (Adesso, Plum Bar).

Along with Prizefighter, this makes two brand new cocktail bars in Emeryville and yet another in the East Bay area. I'll be checking out the bar next week and will report back. 

I see: balsamico amaro, acid phosphate, tons of sherry, and interesting liqueurs.
