Duke Ellington. Now there’s a guy who appreciated a good bourbon-elderflower cocktail. Or so goes the
thinking behind this subtly Duke-themed spot. Which also has serious alfresco seating and some of the only

As the saying goes, if you’re going to have family-style Peking duck, there should be a stand-up bass and

professional shave. That’s... also covered here. This is what pop-ups are for.

stew, live Irish tunes and, yes, whiskey cocktails. Old habits and such.
