Drink Here Now 2018:
Sparrow, 58 of 228



Appears in 4 Collections

58 of 228:

A restored lobby bar dating to 1927 (so the story goes), Sparrow evokes vintage Havana class in every glass. Palm fronds punctuate the Art Deco–themed room, and veteran beverage director Peter Vestinos’s menu features classic rum cocktails (El Presidente, Air Mail) and balmy weather staples (pisco punch, a riff on the Americano).

THE DRINK TO DRINK: El Presidente or any number of sipping rums from the two-page-long list.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: ​Don’t miss the vintage phone booth, where you should be sure to call your mother.
