Maude’s Liquor Bar: Have a Cocktail

February 3, 2016 12:01 pm

Elegant drinks and fine French food await you at Maude's Liquor Bar. The interior is warm and romantic, with exposed brick walls and dark leather banquettes providing the ideal setting for a meal by candlelight. The menu has a nice mixture of bistro cuisine and raw bar specialties. Dishes like steak tartare and roasted bone marrow are popular choices, as is the phenomenal French onion fondue. If you're more in the mood for a tower of oysters and shrimp, however, you'll nonetheless be taken care of here. At the bar you can expect delicious cocktails made with the highest quality ingredients. A particular favorite of visitors, however, are the numerous smashes, with the gin and smokey violet being the real standouts. They're classic drinks that are great to enjoy with food or on their own.

How to Create a Chic and Stylish Bar Cart

January 27, 2016 4:47 pm

Bar carts are the types of finishing touches that add a major pop of designer flair to any room in the home. From the living room to the dining room, adding a well-curated bar cart will really give your home the type of 1950s style that is right on trend. Here are just a few tips for creating a truly chic bar cart.

  1. Start with the perfect cart. Scour flea markets and thrift stores for an authentic vintage bar cart. If you can’t find one there, try purchasing one at an affordable furniture store or even using a small three-tiered bookshelf.
  2. Choose your spirits. The types of spirits that you add to your cart really depend on your personal preferences. Investing in three or four bottles of common spirits like vodka, gin, and bourbon is a good place to start.
  3. Add your glassware. Next, invest in new or secondhand sets of wine glasses, low tumblers and martini glasses. You may even want to add decanters to fill with mixers or to trade out unattractive liquor bottles.
  4. Add the accessories. Fill a glass jar with stirrers, add a small cutting board for slicing lemons and limes and even add stacks of mixology books for the finishing touches.
