Bar Leather Apron

Located in the mezzanine of an office building, Bar Leather Apron is a truly unique, and formal, drinking experience. Reserve a spot at the bar to soak in the full dark and moody energy, where the bartenders in ties and, yes, leather aprons, shake, stir, and pour smoking cocktails. One of them is the mai tai, which is unlike any other you’ll have, with the addition of a raisin-infused rum and absinthe. It’s not the only thing worth trying either—the menu includes a matcha Old Fashioned, a short list of highballs stirred with yuzu or shiso, and a gigantic list of about 500 whiskeys.
