code name MIXOLOGY
The name of this bar is inspired by the unique ‘scientific’ way the cocktails are created – a centrifuge and rotary evaporator are just a few of the tools used here. By thinking outside the box, the owner is able to marry unique flavors like wasabi and blue cheese with high-quality spirits. Mixed drinks here never have to be boring.
