    If the Roosevelt Hotel didn't empress you then Sazerac will, Art Deco interiors and hands down the best Gin Fiz's in the world.

    Drinks pretty spendy, they're very good but the bartenders are the WORST. So rude.Snapped at me for changing my order. I was so taken a back- I've never been spoken to that by any service professional

    Tony and Davis Rogan enjoy a few signature cocktails and an ambience that harkens to an older time. Named after the world’s first mixed drink, Sazerac has as much history and lore as its namesake.

    Ramos Gin Fizz is a must. Classic bar with beautiful hotel. Artwork is dated and fairly inappropriate for modern day. Drinks are spot on.

    Great place for a classic Whisky cocktail - next time you order a manhattan, go for "dry" or "perfect" - subs/cuts the sweet vermouth with dry vermouth instead. A completely different cocktail.
