Cocktails at Ritz

A friend told me I had to go to the lounge at the Ritz-Carlton for cocktails, made by one of the countries best bartenders. Anyone know the details about this? Unfortunately he didn't have any info. Thanks!

  1. Your friend was no doubt thinking of Chris McMillan at the Library Lounge. He's well known as a great bartender and historian of drinks.

    Chris left the Library Lounge, unfortunately, a few weeks ago. Last I heard, he still has landed anywhere yet. So, no reason to stop here.

    If you want good cocktails try Lu at the Swizzle Stick or Chris Hannah at Arnaud's French 75.

      Too bad! Bad timing on my part. Thanks for the info.

        We hope Chris finds a new venue soon. In the meantime, Frolic's other recommendations are terrific.
