Foursquare Tips

  • Awesome, easygoing bar devoted to bitters and amari. For cocktail nerds who know how to have fun.
  • Amor & Amargo is not a newcomer but they've hit their stride, serving all manner of homemade bitters and elixers. Try going on a weeknight to avoid the crowds, as the space is rather diminuitive.
  • A dealers choice Old-Fashioned included habanero bitters and mescal. It tasted like smoke and intrigueor, one drinker suggested, bacon and fried onions.
  • Try the house gin and tonic, a complex cocktail with little in common with your garden-variety G&T. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • give yourself in to the bartender's choice. you won't regret it.
  • Their Alpine Afternoon drink a mixture of Pine Liqueur and Bitters is likeChristmas in a glass.
  • Amor offers classes, bitters for purchase, vermouth on tap (Spanish style), and cocktails using a range of bitters, from Italian amaros to French liqueurs to local stuff.Tapas to match.
  • Having a pickled egg? Give it a few drops of sriracha bitters.
  • Vermouth on tap! Hah!
  • This is one bar where it makes sense to go exclusively "Dealer's Choice" with the bartenders - all of whom are super super cool.
  • The bar only has a handful of seats, and they're always packed with cocktail connoisseurs sampling the creations of the top-notch bartending staff.
  • The bathroom smells like a garlic knot.
  • Get a cocktail!
  • Ask for a custom cocktail. Get the Negroni style with the house sweet vermouth. Let them choose the spirit and amaro. Always amazing.
  • A very different kind of bar. Show up with an open mind and a flexible palate. And get ready for BITTER.
  • Tiny space. Don't go with more than one person. If possible, sit at bar so you can sample their bitters collection. No juice, no mixers, no vodka. Fans of girly drinks, please go elsewhere.
  • the em dash is really great
  • Get the Sharpie Moustache. Thank me later.
  • Bitters paradise. Try the Negroni (home-made vermouth!)
  • Ask for an amaro flight. Educational
