Prohibition never tasted so good.
This December marks the 75th anniversary of the repeal of alcohol prohibition.
Throughout this month, Mezze Bistro and Allium are celebrating the repeal of a very bad idea, in our humble opinion. Plus, one of our favorite bartenders, Matt Hopkins, will be leaving Mezze to try his luck in the big city this January. This nightly celebration of the old-fashioned cocktail is his sendoff to us.
With an appreciation for a well-crafted drink made of the best ingredients and a study of the old-school techniques from the cocktail’s first golden era, we are reviving the classics in their purest, most celebrated and well-crafted form.
Higher-quality ingredients and innovative adaptations on our drink menu reflect the same approach we are striving for in our kitchens.
Each night, a different classic cocktail will be in the spotlight. Mark your calendar for the classics you’ve always wanted to try. And, be sure to ask your server for the goods.
At the very least, come in and bid fare-thee-well to Matt!
