I've had a series of cocktail menus sitting next to my desk to share for months now, and it's about time I did. Below I have a series of menus from three bars: The Rogue Gentlemen in Richmond, Virginia; Bitter & Twister Cocktail Parlour in Phoenix, Arizona; and Little Red Door in Paris. Each is pretty amazing.
Little Red Door, Paris
This gorgeous cardboard book is called the Evocative Menu - each page has two pieces of artwork. Slider pull-outs at the end of each page reveal the cocktail inspired by it (or is the the painting inspired by the cocktail?).
Bitter & Twister Cocktail Parlour in Phoenix, Arizona
This menu is a thick 32-page glossy pamphlet inspired by vintage video games.
The Rogue Gentlemen in Richmond, Virginia
Owner John Maher sent me a whole stack of menus a while back, including a Mad Libs (Mad Libations), a set of baseball cards, a ski map, and two giant tri-fold cardstock menus inspired by a teen and nature magazine.
Thanks to the bars for sending these to add to my collection!
