From the Publisher
Praise for the NoMad Bar:
"When the NoMad Hotel opened in 2012 in New York City, cocktail veteran Leo Robitschek--who devised the drinks menu at acclaimed restaurant Eleven Madison Park--was behind the gorgeous mahogany bar, serving his own creations...alongside classic quaffs. The hotel bar soon became so popular with both guests and those seeking a happy-hour fix that Robitschek and his EMP partners Daniel Humm and Will Guidara decided to open a larger drinking den to satisfy demand. The NoMad Bar debuted in the summer of 2014, and quickly became one of the city's hottest destinations." --Conde Naste Traveler "This elegant saloon inside the NoMad hotel [is] teeming with lofty pub grub, digs worthy of 007...[and], with a mob-movie masculinity, is the most boisterous of the hotel's bunch, a dazzling anomaly of a pub."--Time Out New York
